that whales have to be blue? Just change them to pink and call them Whilemina! I am making two different versions of Old Fashioned Baby Baby's Summer Clothes romper with the sweet diaper shirt. I made "Wally" posted here last spring. I just turned him into a her! I lengthened and curled her eyelashes and may add a bow to her spout. This is for our baby and hopefully tomorrow evening I can stitch on the second one. It is for a baby gift for youngest daughter to give.
Whilemina is done with shadow work using one strand of floss. The waves are stem stitch. The fabric for the diaper shirt is lined poly/cotton pique by Spechler Vogel. Couldn't tell you where I purchased it. I have quite a large piece in my stash and it takes a while to use up on newborn sized things. The floral for the romper is a floral lawn. Our baby mommy doesn't mind ironing.
It was nice to thread a needle and to sit and stitch a spell. It calmed my spirit. I am just now feeling like I can come up for air. Baby mommy is looking great, though she doesn't advise her method of post partum weight loss. Hopefully she will continue to recover and feel even better as the days go by.
