A new baby in the family!

We have a new grand niece! Meet Lillian Sue:)


Babies need lots of cute onesies.


The blue ones are ombre dyed from dark on the bottom to lighter on the top. It’s a little hard to tell in the photos.

The designs were stitched with a heavy thread before dyeing. I wasn’t sure how clear they would be, but I’m very pleased with the results. Lilli’s mom grew up on a ranch, so the boots are right up her alley!

Reversible shoes (tutorial here) to match and a burp cloth. These are so easy! I’ll make a few more of each to send.burp cloth and shoes

Check out more Whoop Whoop! projects at Sarah’s place. Thanks, Sarah!

Some feathered friends for your viewing pleasure.

Ruby-throated hummingbird.

Baltimore Oriole


I debated whether to show you the photo I got of the oriole relieving himself, but didn’t think I’d put my maturity level on public display. It is pretty funny, though. Ahem.

Coming up next…the new kitchen reveal!!


  1. Congratulations! She's a cutie, and it looks like you've been busy making sure she's well supplied with cute outfits. Love the onesies and the shoes.

    Those are some great bird pictures too. I think I'm on the same maturity level as you because that sounds like a pretty funny shot.

  2. Ha Ha loved the baby clothes and the photos - but the comment about the Oriole made me laugh out loud!

  3. Love your little baby goodies - for such a cutie!! I know you're excited!!

    And I wonder why we don't have any of those Baltimore Orioles around my place? I've not seen one here, although I have seen the hummingbirds.....

  4. How fun to have a new baby in the family, especially for sewing projects. Love how cool those baby clothes look in your hand dyed fabrics.

    Love your bird photos, as always! I can't remember the last time I saw a Baltimore Oriole - always forget to put out orange slices to attract them.

  5. Oh those onesies are adorable... and the new babygirl is just precious! Ya know as I get older I can't help but be more sentimental about babies and hope for the future.

  6. Great job on those onesies!! love them!
