Tulip Time Completed

I finally got all the embellishments done on Tulip time. I sewed white lace appliques and lilac roses on the yoke of the dress and on the insteps of the booties, and I wove sheer lilac ribbon into the dress for a sash and into the booties for ties. I'm really happy with how this layette set turned out.
I made the baby headband from a pattern in a different book, but I think it goes well with the Tulip Time set, especially since I used the same white lace appliques and lilac roses on it, too.
I also crocheted this blanket, Shining Star, from another book to go with Tulip Time, so now all five pieces are ready to be gift-wrapped and sent on their way for the baby girl expected by my nephew and his wife.

My brother and sister-in-law are also expecting a baby girl, so I'm planning to crochet Morning Glory for her, which is from the same pattern book as Tulip Time--'Beautiful Baby Boutique' from Annie's Attic. If you follow this link, you should be able to see a picture of the cover of the book. Tulip Time is in the main shot, and Morning Glory is in the little circle in the lower right-hand corner.

Hey Sister! This is YFB for whom (among others :) you sewed the BE-autiful Morning Glory baby dress. We were flabbergasted! Mandy just kept saying, "It's a dress! It's a dress!" and that we know what we'll be bringing lil Audrey home from the hospital in. It makes the whole prospect of bringing our daughter into the world that much more REAL! It could be any time this week. THANK YOU!!! This is such a touching gift -- we are humbled and speechless. Pray for us. I'm having fun looking at your incredible blogsite. Much, much love, your lil bro!

Good stuff, it's hard to find good articles on how to make stuff like that. You should try posting this on Wacanai.com(http://www.wacanai.com/intro). I find most of my stuff there. It's nice because you can search by ingredients and by the name of the finished product. You can link your page to the website and it helps you keep track of who is using your articles. Great list of drink recipes for parties too!
