How I loved these indigo prints purchased at a quilt show.  As you can see . . they are reversible.  Take your pick . . light or dark!
Not at all intended for the twin gd's 2nd birthday dresses.

But on the way back to my booth i spotted an adorable dress pattern.
 The reversible fabric would offer up two very different dresses.  The twins are rarely dressed alike.  I bought two fabrics for the ruffles to distinguish them even more.   I laid out Dress 1.  I laid out Dress 2.  They were looking sufficiently unalike.   But then . . somehow . .  the fabrics kept getting flipped . .  and switched . . and flipped again.  Leaving me with two very similar frocks.   Add to that, I liked the ruffle on the first dress so much that it had to go on the second as well.
Oh anyway . . aren't they cute?!!   The design is from kati cupcake Pattern Co. and the dress pattern is called Peggy Sue.   Are you stitching today?   Lots of sizes if you want to whip up something cute for a dear little one.

Our new children's quilt pattern
also includes these cuddly little wool bunnies.  Give them a little hug and they'll even squeak for you.
 Wouldn't they be fun to find in an
Easter Basket?

Barbara from Polluck Pines CA. wasted no time whipping up a whole colony of them.   Love how she fashioned these two in that adorable wooden cart.  What a wonderful setting with the wool eggs and all.
I had to comment on that tablecloth.   So love that!
She said that is is from a wonderful country store in Turlock.  You can actually check them out on Facebook at American Country Cabin.
As always Barbara . . I love your work.
And thanks . .  for putting a little Spring in our step.
