Busy week and baby blankets

Well, last week I managed to accomplish quite a bit.  I was a pattern drafting fool!  I made the first three below during the week, and the rest on the weekend.  I cut them all out on Saturday after volleyball, and then sewed on Sunday.

  • Short summer dress for me
  • Maxi summer dress for me
  • Skort muslin for me (mostly fit…needs some tweaks)
  • Dress and leggings for the girl
  • Shorts outfit for my grand-nephew
  • 3 baby blankets

I also have another dress and leggings set cut out for the girl with some vibrant sugar skull fabric.  This one is not as twirly as the one I made this weekend, but still a full circle skirt.  I am going to do an HTV sugar skull on the front, so that is the docket for this evening.  Hopefully I can start working on it, too.

Next to get pictures of them all worn!

Here are the baby blankets that I made with my tutorial.

The middle one has been claimed by a fellow volleyball mom.  Her (current) youngest plays with my girl, so this baby was a bit of a shock to them.  They were counting down the days to being empty nesters, but now they are looking at daycare and ordering a crib.

Baby’s are joys and all, but man, would that put a wrench in retirement!


I like to put a fun quilting cotton on one side and then a nice soft minky.

The other two are going to be headed to a women’s shelter on Pine Ridge Indian reservation.  It is a charity that I donate to regularly, so I will get a box filled to send their way.

 This week I will try to get pictures of what I have sewed up so far.  First up will be the dress I made the girl.  It is SO CUTE.  We both agree. 🙂
