Hospital Gown

My daughter, Desi, is expecting her baby at the end of October.  Each week this summer we have spent a day sewing in preparation for Jacob's arrival.  Of course he needs to arrive her with his mama dressed in style!  She found a pattern online for a hospital gown - who would have thought?  Anyway, the fabric is so cute and it turned out much more classy than the gowns provided at the hospital - and it was so easy!  The link for the pattern is here.

      SHE is not preggars! - Amy just had to model it.

    Desi IS!

And yep - the back has ties just like the hospital ones do!

New Barn Door.....finally!

 For Christmas this year, hubby and I gave each other barn door hardware - yes, we've been married a long time.  It was to be a quick, easy project.  HMMM...six months later, it is done. Unforeseen events and a wedding kind of interrrupted our progress - but it doesn't matter.  It's DONE!

BEFORE (bad angle, but narrow hallway)

AFTER (better angle, but still narrow hallway)

About 50 years ago, the owners of this house found a GREAT deal on some louvered bi-fold doors because there were about 50 pairs of them installed.  We have been slowly changing them out and this is about the last couple of pairs.  There is one small one we still need to replace - but we are still working on a solution for that one.
