He gives good things! I decided to make the crib bumper and dust ruffle, since I couldn't find anything without daisies and butterflies. WELL! The other day I found a pattern I liked on sale from $13 to $2. THEN, I saw this fabric, which I absolutely loved, but it was $10/yard! And the pattern called for about 9 yards! Yikes! However, the store is going out of business, so it was marked down to $5. PLUS, a lady from church works there, and she went with me and threw in her 20% employee discount! It ended up being $2/yard. To top it all off, she looked at my pattern and did some figuring, and she said I'd need only 5 yards, not 9! Hallelujah! So this awesome material that would've cost me $90 ended up costing a meager $10. How great is my God! Posted by Picasa

LOVE IT. Love it, love it, LOVE IT! I can't wait to see the finished product put together with the nursery walls! You're quite the bargain shopper, too. A good talent to have with kids around...

O boy... you guys surely seem anxious about the glorious finished product... perhaps I'll dedicate my next post to the one and only sewing experience I've had. It was a complete fiasco, by the way!

You can do it, Karen! Here's my biggest sewing advice: Use the pattern for the pieces, but use your common sense instead of the directions. Pattern directions often are very confusing!!
