Weekend sewing and Quilt shop stop...

Did a little sewing this weekend.  Our number two granddaughter--Everleigh Joan, my namesake:) turns one tomorrow and her birthday party was yesterday so I finished up her quilt and made a matching small pillow and a standard size pillowcase.  

 Here is the result.  I have been making a baby quilt for each one of the grandchildren when they arrive.  And then once they are here I make another one which is a bit bigger and then I try to pick fabric which they can grow into.  Not so much a "baby quilt" but a toddler/young child quilt.

 I also made Evi some pj's.  I made tons of clothes for my own children when they were young, and it has been awhile since I have made any clothes.  So it was fun to make these.  
 I made a trip to a quilt shop today as I needed some fabric to finish my Mrs. Waddelow's Huswife and some lining fabric for two Christmas Stockings. The blue and red fabric in the back is for the stockings.   This is what I bought. I also found some really cute ribbon and a scissors
This scissors was at the checkout and I thought I just have to have them.  They are Sullivan's Petites Embroidery Scissors.  They were just to darn cute to pass up.  

So there you have it.  I am a little busy this week but I hope to get some more finishing done and
of course some evening stitching.

Have a great week and Happy Stitching:)
