productive weekend

my last blog was pretty exciting huh? i mean, just riveting...

well, blogging about it put me in motion. i did pretty good. i cleaned the whole house! like really cleaned. pulled out chairs and dusted under furniture. cleaned glass and mirrors. it was a serious clean. C took a 5 1/2 hour nap (!) so i was about to get a lot done.

i also finished the baby blanket i was working on. the burp clothes did not get made, but the blanket did. and it is probably the favorite blanket i've made. so, i have to share.

i found out that the mommy-to-be was doing her nursery in pink and green.

and she is naming her little sweetie penelope.

i'm pretty excited about the applique. i've been practicing a lot and i'm really pleased with how it came out.

and i wanted to add all the baby favorites. satin trim and super soft fleece.

i hope she loves it and is able to get a lot of snuggle use out of it!


i was also able to get some great pictures of C. she is 19 months old right now and the spring flowers and fresh green outside was something i couldn't resist. she has so much personality right now and i'm so glad i was able to capture this time.

here's a peek at a few of my favorites.

(i hope my mom doesn't read this - these are part of her mother's day gift! =))

have a good week!


  1. I'm SUPER impressed with your applique! I can't ever get mine to look so good!!!

  2. Jade! These pictures are AMAZING!!!! Where were they taken?

  3. Um, please let me know if you're interested in taking orders ; ) There are lots of babies being born that will need me to buy them a Jade-origional! Not joking.
