Since Christian is working on growing a double chin, I cut the neck slightly larger. I was able to make the shirt in one afternoon, do the handwork that evening, and the Bullion frog the next morning. Now, that is what I call "Nana Sewing!" The frog is from "Australian Smocking's A-Z Bullion Book", which happens to be one of my favorites. If you have not tried Bullion animals, they are extremely quick and easy. This little frog took me less that 15 minutes.
*These pictures are about 2 weeks old and Christian now 7 weeks old and weighs 11.5 lbs. The boy is getting plenty to eat! He is not a red head yet, although we are all hoping!
