Joining in with Rhonda's 'on my mind' blog link-up today.
Making Ginger's homemade birthday presents is on my mind today; we a trying to ensure most of what she will receive from us is homemade. I want the day to be special, to say "we are so glad you came to join us". Less than two months to go - I can't believe she is has been with us for ten and half months!
With DH out field this week I have made quite a lot of progress.....most of the bunting is cut out (if not sewn), her doll's quilt is made and so is a steiner baby doll (following instructions from this book). I have tried to use stash materials as much as possible, but had to buy fabric for her bunting - fortunately Lincraft is having a 50% off fabric sale. The wool stuffing for the doll I was given by the owner of our local sheepskin product shop. He gave me offcuts from his chair covers - so kind and I had just enough to fill the doll.
Still in the works are a birthday crown, some hanging decorations, the sheets and pillowcase for her (yet to be) restored $9 thrifted doll's cot - her Daddy is in charge of the cot itself and a Daddy-made play kitchen.
