quilt and new dresser for X

I had a bunch of scraps left over from making stuff for Hendrix's room, so I decided to make him a blanket with the left-overs. I'm happy with how cute it turned out...this is the front

I even made the binding myself!! It was my first time making binding. I'm pretty proud that I did it....ha. it isn't perfect, by any means, but not bad for my first time :)

our neighborhood had a garage sale yesterday. this dresser was our amazing find. we also got hendrix a jumper/exersaucer toy that he LOVES. i'm sure to get a picture of him in it soon. we got both for $40....not a bad deal, huh? i think it completes his room.

I am seriously so envious of your sewing skills. I'm hoping I'll get a sewing machine for Christmas. I love how you just whip up the cutest things all the time. So talented.

Oh... and your post about comments...lol. You are so cute! ha. Loved it ;) I would have to say that I rate comments a 10 as well. They really do make my day.
