1 down, 2 to go...

So, I've finished the first of my three nieces' nighties and I'm actually quite happy with the result. Now I'm on to the 2nd , but I'm having a major issue because AFTER I cut out most of the pieces, I noticed a giant stain on the piece I had cut for the front. It's not really in a place I can hide it, so I'm off to the fabric store to see if they still have the fabric (I bought it a year ago, so fingers crossed) or buy all new fabric. Not impressed. And I'm kind of stressed because I'm should have started these earlier and Christmas is a-coming!

On another Christmas-y note, I did some baking for a potluck at work. The icing looks a little funny, but they tasted yummy!

Hope you manage to find the same fabric. At least you had some yummy cupcakes to make things better for a little while!

Ugh - I always start sewing projects at the last minute. And I always run into some weird problem. I like to pretend I'm on Project Runway and have to "make it work"!

Love the nighty..Can you wash the stain out with something? I hate when that happens.

Love the cupcakes!
