Easter Sewing

The last few days I have been managing to sneak away into my creating space and work on some Easter outfits for the grandchildren.  I love making clothing for wee ones.  It's hard to imagine that Easter will be here in a few short weeks.  I tried to get some outdoor pictures, but the winds would not allow for it.  Mind you....the winds are warm winds this week with our crazy temperatures back into the 80s.  (Love it too.)  These are my creations.






I won't show a picture of my sewing area after these projects because it would terrify all of you.  Are you the type who keeps it all neat and tidy or do you make a disaster and THEN clean it to begin the next project? 

I can also show you a picture of the Easter Mug Rug since my swap partner has already received it.  This has been such a great group of talented quilters to swap amongst.  I do hope that we can continue with another project when the year is finished.



Okay....off to clean the disaster and frost a birthday cake as we have a grandson turning nine today.


Enjoy the daylight savings time (if you are lucky enough) with the longer evenings.  I love them myself.

What adorable easter clothes! They are going to look so cute. Show photos of them in them! I cut out a dress for Audrey and then re-assessed my deadlines and moved onto something else.

Susan said...

The outfits are lovely! I have two dresses cut out for granddaughters and am on my way to finish them. Guess I better get away from the computer...

Those are the sweetest outfits! Now how long are those whites going to stay white - on little boys!! Too cute. I think the peeps fabric is so precious and what a lovely mug rug. And I keep working amongst the disaster until the end of the month - then clean to start the next month of chaos.

Pink Peeps fabric -- too cute!

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

Maria said...

Love the fabrics...
Oh your wee ones will look gorgeous in their lovely outfits..
Hmm My cave never seems to be clean....

Lesley said...

You are quite the talented lady! The little outfits are precious, and so is the mug rug. Awesome!

Kathy P said...

Those little outfits are so cute! Nicely made too! My sewing space looks like a war zone while I'm working, but I have to tidy up the chaos before I can start the next project.

Terry said...

The little Easter outfits are so cute, and I love that mug rug! The embroidered egg is beautiful! :0)

Hilachas said...

Aw, Mary, those outfits are just darling. Lucky grandchildren. And yes, my sewing room is a DISASTER. I have stuff all over the place when I'm being creative. Well, it's a disaster even when I'm not being creative. We've been having beautiful weather also and I'm so ready for spring. Nice mug rug you got there.

Live a Colorful Life said...

P.S. My sewing space nearly always seems to be in a state of disaster, although I claim to love orderliness.

You have amazing talent Mary! I hope we get to see a picture of your grandkiddies in their outfits!
I am a lover of daylight savings time and enjoyed every minute of it this evening outside with my hubby.

the little outfits are so cute. I used to like sewing for the little ones too. Now the youngest is 16.

I leave the mess pretty much til the end too and clean it up to start the new project.

Carla said...

Such darling clothes! I want to sew for Easter, but time.....

Bouts Choisis said...

Those are delightful little outfits! My sewing room is untidy - but I do have plans for a change....

lindsey said...

Beautiful outfits...clever Grandma!

andsewon said...

Those outfits are adorably sweet! Yes I make a mess and will sometimes clean up between projects!;-)Cute mug rug! Today is last nice warm sunny day, more rain tomorrow. So must get outside stuff done!

Farm Quilter said...

Adorable!!! Such lucky grandchildren to have a grandma who is as talented as you!!! Love your mug rug too!!! I make mess during a project, then clean it up. I've been trying to keep it neater!

Linds said...

Beautiful wee clothes! I am the work on in a disaster area kind of person. The floor looks abominable once I have finished, and then it takes a few days to restore order. Right now, Diana is sleeping on the deck above my sewing room, and all her worldly belongings are in the actual sewing room. You have NO idea. Creating is a hit and miss affair because I can't even see my machines, never mind all the bits I need to be creative. But then, I have a daughter home. That makes up for the chaos. Sort of.

Stephanie said...

I do hope you share photo of the wee ones in the adorable outfits! LOVE the mug rug...the pink peeps are fun.

Nat Palaskas said...

Val said...

Precious little outfits! How fun. And I love that mug rug too!

Fiesta said...

Mary, the outfits are adorable. God bless your talents. I received the lovely towels today and I already set them out. They are beautiful and we love them. I apologize for not emailing you but I could not find your addy.

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

What ADORABLE outfits!!!

And my sewing area is a mess when I'm in the middle of a sewing project. But I do tidy it up before I begin the next one. ;-)

nancygrayce said...

How wonderful that you can sew for your grands! What adorable Easter outfits. I had an aunt that made our Easter outfits because my mama didn't sew and alas, neither do I!

Love that Easter mug rug!

Have a great rest of your week!!

Jessie Pope said...

Those are about the cutest Easter outfits I have ever seen. I need to take up sewing - or maybe my mom can so she can sew her grandkids stuff? :)

Jean Kritenbrink said...

VEry cute outfits! I used to love to sew for my girls....not grands yet to sew for, so I have to stick to quilting for now.

Wacky Woman said...

Oh what a good grandma you are! Seriously good!

My Sister Made Me Do It.... said...

I love the Easter Outfits! I remember growing up that we always got a new dress for Easter....my Mom sewed us some beautiful dresses through the years. And about those sewing spaces....I am trying to clean mine up after the 4-Seasons Tablecover project was finished....since I had the "Dreaded Presentation" to finish up I just left everything as it was and was greeted with the mess this morning! LOL.....Congratulations on your win at With Love and Ladybug Hugs!

Connie said...

What precious Easter outfits! I used to do tons of garment sewing but don't anymore. Your little mug rug is so cute!

Tammy said...

Oh I love thos elil outfits. they are adorable. But I really like that mug rug....Very nice. I am sure your partner loves it.

Nancy said...

You are a prolific sewer. Had to tell you that the mug rug is so pretty. I have never seen Peeps fabric. Looking forward to reading your future blogs.

Michele said...

The outfits are adorable and of course I love the mug rug. I may have to pay you some time to do up some of those eggs for me.

Cheryl in Friendsville said...

Cleaning? What is that!?! My sewing room is in a constant state of disaster. I tidy up after a project, but I have so many that overlap, that the tidying isn't much help. Once a year I do a major overhaul - and then can't find anything for a month!! Those Easter outfits for the grands are ADORABLE!

Barbara said...

The clothes are so beautiful. You could open a baby boutique.

Dandelion Quilts said...

These scream spring! Love it. You're so funny...that describes my sewing room all the time.

Shanna said...

Oh I just love your pretty clothes, you are such a nice Grandma!
