This is a happy spot in our dinning room. The pink highchair came from Grammie for Sadie's 5th, the amazing Bunny is from Hillary, of course, about 2 years ago. You can make your own with her pattern (it's in her shop, scroll down, put-togther book #1) This one is an original made by her. Gloat. Glaot. Judy (the bunny) has received a lot of love, her apron and hair bow are now elsewhere. The blue cradle was made by my brother for Delia's 3rd. I drew the template for him and he had the tools and bought the wood and busted this out and painted it. What an uncle. We will cherish it and already do. Surely it will go to grandchildren and great grandchildren. I love that. He made two, one will go to Liddy on her first birthday. The vintage style stickers on the headboard are from my computer (from wrapping paper from the paperzone about 2 years ago) and the Baba doll in there I made was from an old Magic Cabin pattern that I don't think they sell anymore. Grammie made an adorable striped mattress and matching pillow.
This cradle I think was made just with a scroll saw and some wood screws. It's pine and probably cost about $10? He was super excited to make it and it just warms my heart. This seems like such a cool project for people to make who are into working with wood-it's only 5 pieces and the head and foot are the only pieces that actually need to be cut out, the rest you can get cut for you to size at the lumber yard. The top rails were added by him, a nice little detail. Thank you good Uncle!!
-Hillary has her way cute mr. & mrs. gnome pattern up now, just in time to start for the Christmas decor. We need a set on the sofa.
-Alicia rocked the cuteness this week with her St. Lucia clothespin dollmaking kit for sale. Kits?? Pure genius. I snatched one up. They are now sold out--sorry, but I still had to make you look, cause, dang!!
-Everyday for the month of November, the Sew, Mama, Sew blog is linking to tutorials for handmade gifts to give this season. Prepare to get distracted for a long time--and we are only 1/2 through the month!
