Stash Report - Week 23 - 6/5/11

I finished the Roman Stripe Quilt, UFO #9 this week and none of the fabric had ever been counted. That used about 8 yards.

I also finished a new outfit for dgd, Paige.

Don't you just want to pinch those cheeks? Look at those rolls
on her arms and legs! They are having a terrible time finding outfits that the elastic on the legs doesn't act like a tourniquet on those thighs.

So what's a grandmother to do? Make her outfits that fit, of course.

Having had only 4 sons I never got to make cute little outfits like this.
And I certainly never made little headbands with fabric flowers on them. I should have made pacifier holders but that never occurred to me at the time.
Am I having fun making baby girl clothes? uhhhh, yeah!!! 1 1/2 yards for the Paige outfit.

HI Melinda,
Finally remembered to check out the blog and what a wonderful opening picture! She IS beautiful, even to a non-biased eye. (poopoo... old european tradition after saying a baby is beautiful).
And the dress just too cute! AmyM

She is beautiful! My son is almost 6 months old and I LOVE those rolls! I tell him every morning to enjoy it because it's the only time in life that thunder thighs are okay!

That dress is just adorable!
