Mendocino Giant Octopi in natural,
Mendocino Underwater Sisters in blush,
Mendocino Giant Octopi in aqua,
West Hill floral stripe with gold leaves

  1. This line is beautiful. I had some fat eights a while ago but used them up. I'm getting ready to have girl #2 this summer and think it's perfect for the little ones :)
    Sewing is definitely my relax time. It's what I do to unwind on weekend evenings when all else is quiet (or at least should be!).
