Baby blanket using the quilt as u go technique.

Personalized baby wipes

Baby tote I made. Embroidered name & teddy on front. Cool colors! who would have thought lilac, brown and teal could go for a boy?


Do you remember how I said: "I am making a quilt for myself?" Well, forget it! A baby shower came along, then I forgot all about Christmas! Yes Christmas! So this am I am loading up a quilt on the frame and going to get crackling. This past week brought Jesse's home coming, his first varsity touch down & baby shower. For the baby shower I did something different. I got an idea from my niece Kelley. You take a baby wipes plastic box & hot glue fabric & embellish, embroider name and walla~ a personalised case.

I came across this blog today. I am going to make a quilt!! That is nothing new in itself! But it is for me. BY the word "me" I mean my family. We need some warm quilts to snuggle under & when we had company come visit recently, I realized we needed more quilts. I ran out of batting and since they closed our Hancocks, Joanne's and Minnesota fabric shops I decided to buy off the internet. I got a pretty good deal on wool batting. I bought three! I can't find my usb cord for my camera. I have new pictures I need to show you!
