another project and an announcement

I don't think I have told you all that we will have a granddaughter in June!
This picture is our daughter Nina, taking a picture in their baby's nursery. Nina and John are expecting Elizabeth, their first baby in just a few months.
I think the nursery is about ready, I am going over there later to wait for a repairman and will take some more pictures of the nursery to show.
Yes, the walls are blue and the baby is a girl - John is a football coach and did not want things too girly - he may be in for some surprises down the road - but he is a good guy and I am sure he will be a great dad, even if Elizabeth is as girly a girl as her momma.




I found this old maternity top pattern at a thrift store for a dime and made Nina one top from it from a cute black and white print. Sorry, no picture though.
She liked it and picked out 4 more pieces of fabric from the sewing room.

I finished them up today and think they turned out pretty good. Nina is on the tall side so I added a couple of inches to length of all of them.

  1. So cute on the tops. You're a good mama to make the them. ;-)
    I love that color blue and the white furnature will look great. Maybe a ruffled blanket or curtain?

  6. What I would have given for shirts like this back in the day. I think I wore the same six tops for months on end! Well done, Rhonda!

  8. How exciting! The blue is beautiful...even for a girl. When I was expecting Taylor, I painted the nursery blue and we didn't know if he was going to be a girl or boy. It can go either way.

    Nice job sewing, too!
