A Busy Busy Week(end)

It's been a busy long weekend around my house!! 

I've been making things in anticipation of adding items to a new shop that is opening near me that will have a selection of things from local craft vendors.  They've invited several of us to come tomorrow night to see the space (almost finished with the renovation) and find out a little bit about how things will work.  

I've made Alabama and Auburn reversible dresses (because I live in the heart of Alabama and the rivalry is huge!)   The dresses are completely reversible. 

I made bloomers for this one because it is if Ivy Rose, but I will not be making any more size 3mo bloomers!  Just too fidgety to work with!!  (I will try a 6 month size maybe)

I also made her a sleep sack.  
It works well, but I will make the neckline a little lower on the next one.  And BabyGurl has asked for a lighter weight one (this one was made with some scraps of fleece, so I will use flannel on the next one.) 

And another new pattern I tried.  I did not like sewing with gathers 30 years ago, and I still do not like it!  :-)

Some baby love.

And some more baby love.
(Ignore my crazy expression, I was talking to Sadie when BabyGurl snapped the pic.)

And look who can touch the bottom of the pool this year!!  Oh my!

She had to have "Ewik's" sunglasses.  She's such a diva (sometimes)! 

And Miss Ivy Rose went for her one month (34 days old) checkup today and she is 9 lb 4 oz and 22 inches.  (She has grown three pounds and three inches!!!!) 

She's on her way to visit me now, so there'll be pictures on the next blog update! 

Linking up with many great blogger friends this week so please take a look in my righthand sidebar and visit all these wonderful bloggers who take their time to share and to give us a place to share with each other!
