As for the sewing, I have been the last 3 days
stupid sweet little ties on the pads took me 3 hours by the time I measured and cut them all out (24 altogether) and in addition to that I burned my fingers on the steam from the iron, (over and over again) and just generally whined my way through them, but they are cute. Can you see the piping (both blue & brown) on the top of the pads? Another one of my smarter moves (not) as it would have been MUCH easier to just have one color going.
The inside of the pads is a different color. It is shown here with one of the sheets. They are all quite different, which will change it up quite a bit. Now it is possible to change the pads around the other way OR she could stager them....you know a light one, then the darker etc. Any opinions?
A closer look at all the colors, though I did nip off the bedskirt a little too much... : )
I had to try it staggered to see how it was....I am thinking I like this best!
Inside staggered with another sheet option
With the light on the outside....much better I think, but still think I like the staggered better...
Darker blue inside with another sheet option...like this too. I think both of these later options are better than first. Opinions???
Now I guess I should mention that I also went out to Newport Beach yesterday and had Jessie do the grey roots, and visited with her quite a bit. I can't wait to see the shower that she has got planned. She could easily start a business as a party planner as well as she is sooo cleaver and good at it. Seriously, I am thinking of hiring her to help out with Jeff's 60th birthday which will be coming up in Dec. But plenty of time to think about that later. I also went out to Redlands today to get all the rest of the stuff I need to finish up my projects. I think I will do the burp cloths tomorrow as they should be quick, easy, and darling.
I want to wish Mike & Mel a happy anniversary today too. 3 years already. How can it be? It seems like just yesterday.
I LOVE that their still this happy!
Sorry, I just had to show this, I just sooo loved her dress!
And finally I just wanted to show you a picture of my little nephew Blake at his baseball game on Sat. Such a fun game. They won, AND Blake hit the winning RBI....Doesn't get much better. Though I did get quite the sunburn on my forearms....I moved to the shade (it was just soo nice even in the sun) but apparently not in time. You'd think after 56 years I'd know better wouldn't you?
Isn't he cute?
Hope you are all having a good week. I feel bad as I have not been around like I usually am. But I will visit tomorrow morning for sure....
