I'm Janimal, happily gainfully employed Momma to a sweet girl. Livin' it up in Atlanta with a great husband and a good job. Sometimes I make stuff and here's my spot to show it off! Life is good, so I'm sharing....

Making Plans...

Hi blog friends! I'm still here!

Lots been happenin! First, here's a look at Delilah for the first night in her big girl bed. She's growing up too fast for me....

Nausea and exhaustion from pregnancy have kept me from being creative lately. But I do have one thing to show you, and would like to share some plans for future projects.

First, here is a dress I just finished. This was actually the first dress I made from the Madison pattern by Bonnie Blue that I've made many of since. I think I made the 3t. It has been sitting in my sewing room without buttons for months. I finally sewed on buttons and sewed buttonholes. It's still a little big for Delilah though.

In other news, I did make a new Fall dress. But I can't show you! It was a test of a pattern from Oliver & S that hasn't been released yet. So I can't show it off until they do. All I can tell you is....I LOVE IT! I'll post when I get permission - I think they are released in August.

Now here is a cool fabric that will be featured in our new little one's nursery.

This cool robot fabric is from the I Heart line by Rashida Coleman-Hayes, from Timeless Treasures that I bought at Whipstitch Fabrics. I think it's way cool that the designer is another Atlanta local chick. It's pretty awesome that there are so many cool and talented peeps in our city in the fabric/sewing world.

Now, what to do with the fabric? I have some others too - I'm thinking some fabric storage boxes to put diapers in....perhaps a floor cushion, window treatment. I may even make some cribsheets. I just need some energy...and time.....

Thanks for stopping by!
