An Experience with Greige Goods

In case you haven’t heard of Greige (pronounced “grey”) Goods before, it refers to the fabric before any of the dyes are added to it.

One more Receiving Blanket

My baby sister had a baby this morning!  Her boys have been loving Dr. Seuss lately.  My sister loves red, so this receiving blanket was perfect — even though I wanted to make something pink and flowery.  I ordered the Seuss flannel online when I couldn’t find it local.  It arrived yesterday.  I got the call this…
