Green, blue and pretty!

I've had this green linen fabric for a long time.  I thought I was going to make the boys some matching shorts.  Then after several failed attempts at shorts - I gave up.  For now.  I also had big plans for an old dress shirts of Erik's, again that never came to fruition.   So I had this idea at work about combining the two fabrics  - which I knew would look great together.  I also have a shirt I love that I thought would be simple to recreate.  There I go again thinking.  See, I'm inundated with great ideas all day long.  But they hardly ever turn out to be worthy of brain space.  But last night, the stars must have aligned just right.  Although, the shirt isn't quite wide enough for my hips, it still makes me happy.  It might just end up a dress for my niece.

just a little somethin' I whipped up...

A cheap-o target tank that I embellished a little.  Also, I whipped up the cutest burp cloth, EVER!  Is it just me or babies popping out all over the place?   I must  get vaccinated from this baby fever .
