Pretty Pink Quilt

So, I finished the little baby quilt (thanks mom for your help)!! It is so cute... now just to find a sweet little one to give it to. Maybe my next baby will be a girl. Then I will be ahead of the game for once :o).
Here is my work in progress
All finished
Ready for squishy baby feet!

Yep, that is right, a half finished quilt top!! I started this probably 5 years ago and found it in one of my craft bins while looking for something else. It made me happy ;o)!! I now have a perfect little project to work on this afternoon while to boys are napping. I will let you know how it turns out.

Fabric Blocks and Teething Rings

I made these super easy fabric toys for my little boy using this tutorial from a wonderful blog called make it and love it. Such a great little place on the web!! The only difference in mine are that I made a 6 inch block instead of a 4 in. I think my next project I may try to combine the taggie toy and the fabric block into a taggie block for one of my friends who is expecting her first little one at the end of the month!! I will post some pictures if they turn out cute ;o)
Liam loves his new toys ;o)

Quick and Easy Weekend Projects!!

I guess the theme of the weekend was "dish cloths" I am on a limited budget, and have really been in the sewing mood, so while going through my towel drawer this weekend I discovered some cute little tea towels that could help me out with my current sewing obsession :o)! Cut them up, and Wah La! Cute new apron! I did not have a pattern or any thing I just made it up as I went. I think it turned out pretty cute considering my limited supplies. I did use the pleated pocket tutorial by Rae which you can find here.
And, with my current sewing kick I have seemed to be in need of a pin cushion. With a 8 month old rolling around on the floor having loose pins popping up everywhere was NOT a good thing. So, searching the crafting blogs I ran across this super cute and super EASY little project. I think it took me a total of 15 minutes to complete :o) And now I don't have to worry about my little boy becoming a moving pin cushion :o)
Oh, and one more little project that was also made out of a dish cloth... like I said... the "theme" of the weekend. I got the idea from the Moda Bakeshop, but again, like I said, limited funds. So, definitely not as cute, but quick, easy, and CHEAP!!
I hope you all had a fun crafting weekend too!!

So, for my first post I will leave you with one of my previous creations until I am totally on board.
