The captain's new shirt
I made this shirt for the captain. It only took me about a year to get around to it! This one even has buttons and button holes, my first, and not as hard as I thought they'd be!

This was a retirement gift for the captain's step mom. Here it is in progress, I ended up having to re do at least half, due to bunching. When I was done I was quite pleased, the m's came out well, I made a template and traced in chalk on the quilt, you can see it in the photo. She really liked it, and I'm glad :)

Shutterbug onesies

Because the captain is an avid photographer, I decided to make a onesie that looks like the baby is wearing a camera. Actually I made two since I wanted one as a baby shower gift. I think they came out really well, I used a paper piecing from scrapbooks etc as the base Pattern. The ladies at the shower loved it, they even passed it around the room :)
