Another fun birthday last week,
One little niece turning two,
needed a (second) geranium dress.
Deep navy blue shirting from Joann’s,
some navy piping,
vintage fabric lined the bodice –
from the never ending grandmother’s stash –
as well as vintage heart shank buttons.
Geranium is a dress that never fails,
this one will be perfect with a couple items
she already has –
a little peter pan collar onesie
and navy t-strap shoes,
purchased ages ago from ebay!
Or on its own as a sundress.
Classic toddler clothes at their best.

So many birthdays clustered in one week,
two of the sweetest girls growing older.
One of our favorite littles turned one!
A puzzle ball seemed the perfect gift
for this inquisitive girl.
I used the instructions from
Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts,
as well as this tutorial online
because, oddly enough, the book had the
entire ball sewn together into one piece –
which makes it not very puzzling.
Vintage rose fabric, and some cotton couture.
This may be one of my favorite baby gifts ever,
so simple and sweet.
