baby shower gift

My brother, Bob, is expecting his first child next month. They are not finding out the childs sex, wanting the big surprise. So i had to make something gender neutral for the baby shower this sunday. I had some gorgeous japanese sheep knit, that i have been saving for something special. Whats more special then a newborn baby? So i sewed up this adorable set, and had my friend Dena ( lulu Bird Designs) applique a sheep on a onesie, just to add that little something extra to the gift. Im super excited about how this set turned out, its too adorable for words.

Wonderland Congo

I am joining the ladies of Wonderland Congo for the holiday seasonl. this is a special congo that is only open for about 4 months, til the end of the holiday shopping season. There is a big variety of vendors, all exceptional in their own way. I am thrilled to be a part of it. Grand Opening is September 15th at noon.

I am starting to preview a few dolls for the Grand Opening. I have my favorite doll, Zoe, who has a special dress dyed by Indigo Onion ( who, if you havent figured it out, i worship). Im also featuring a new doll, Penny. Penny is perfectly purple! My daughter is obsessed with this doll, its calling to her. Pennys skirt is patchwork with two kinds of batiks. Im a huge batik nut, so this doll is very exciting for me. Her hair is vibrant purples and pinks, which Johanna is drawn to. I have to say, Penny is second in line with Zoe on my favorites list!
