Something for BabyStitches

Isn't this a gorgeous batik?!? I love the deep rich colors and the beautiful swirls in it. I found it a couple years ago when I was traveling to South Dakota to attend NieceStitches' college graduation.

And now I am turning it into something for BabyStitches, as she will very soon be turning two. (Hopefully, not "terrible two.") Hard to believe she's two years old already. Below is a little peak of how I'm using this fabric, strangely enough, by adding a yellow floral to it.

After her birthday I'll show you the finished product. Just wanted to let you know that I am getting some work done.

Also, I'm very close to finishing a wall hanging in progress. (I showed you a sneak peek of it in the last post.)

And I sewed another leaf for my project started at Asilomar.

Sew happy.


  1. Baby Stitches is so lucky! I really like that yellow ruffled edge.

    I'm enjoying your blog. We are so alike, traveling, stitching, taking photos, blogging...
    except we're on opposite sides of the country. I'm in CT.

    Happy stitching!

  2. This reminded me that I still need to get those measurements to you...I'm sure this has something to do with it!

  3. You are so perceptive, DaughterStitches!
    Love, Mom

  4. Thanks for the encouragement, Karen!
