dolly diapers

Emma Grace is in sweet stage where she loves her dollies. She loves taking care of them, making them "talk", holding their hands and making them "walk", asking for treats (real ones) for them to eat (and she then finishes what they don't, of course). 
And of course, diapering them. It was getting to the point where she was using more (real) diapers and wipes on them than I was on her some days! So, now her dollies have their own special diapers and wipes which are reusable (and so much cheaper!). :)

I found the pattern for the diapers on Skip To My Lou, and got the idea for the wipes over here. I used flannel for the wipes (which I haven't taken a photo of) and just zigzag stitched the sides.

It's so sweet to see her lay her baby doll down for a change and then talk to her all the while. : ) Maybe someday I'll get a video of it so I can remember ... : )

a lacey heritage

My great-aunt sent me a package that was almost overflowing with wonderful handmade lace pieces.
The best thing about this lace? It was made by my great-grandma and great-great-grandma.

Isn't it just amazing?

Aunt Noelle sent it for me to use, and I will. : )
Maybe to edge some dresses and tops for Emma Grace, maybe on some decorative pillows too. Even though I almost want to wrap these pieces in tissue and preserve them, this lace was meant be to be seen and enjoyed!

Aunt Noelle, thank you so much for the package. It was an honor to receive!

By the way, I'm sharing this post by linking up on a few of these blogs - you might enjoy checking them out. :)
