A quilt for Neave

Mom and I co-quilted this for Neave.
Annie will be proud to know that the yellow is fabric inherited from Aunt Francis.
A little anti-consumerism just for her!
No typical baby colors for a McCabe-Nuckols baby!

Birthday shirt

My kids have pretty much always had some kind of birthday shirt. I'm trying to live a bit more frugally, so I skipped the Gymboree option this year. (Plus, I don't really care for camo on kids. So much for the move to Idaho).

This year's shirt is from a Hane's 5 pack. It's a bit thin, but the price was right. And I needed two of the rest of the pack for practice. The fabric is from my stash, and I used the purple iron on adhesive that the lady at Hancock recommended. Then I used my buttonhole stitch on my Bernina all the way around.

It turned out very cute, and I'll definitely be doing this again!
