Monday Making

It's Sunday where I live.  ;)
Since spring break is HERE
I'm trying to get everything packed up for a little camping!
This post is just a little early.
Early is better than LATE, right??

I've been trying to keep a linky party
going over here on Mondays.
Just a little show and tell.
What are you working ON??

This little IN PROGRESS knitted blanket
will be my constant companion this week.
I might unpack my little sewing machine too...
It's so nice to camp in a trailer!
Let me tell you..
I did the whole TENT camping thing
for many years!!!
The best part about a trailer is the KITCHEN!!!
 A BIG bonus is the fact I can sew too!!!

What are YOU making this week??
If you LOVE making as much as I do...
I know you're working on SOMETHING!!!!

The little quilt I showed on Monday is quilted!
I'm always super happy when a project is all DONE!
(That means I can give it AWAY!
The BEST part about quilting!)

This quilt is FULL of  happy scraps.
Some of these scraps have been waiting a LONG time
to be included....

Just a FEW of the little pieces that
NEEDED to be in a quilt!

Such sweet vintage fabric.

Since Ms. Juki was unavailable this week....
little Miss Featherweight did the quilting.
She buzzed right along like it was NO PROBLEM!

"A friend in need is a friend indeed".
Miss Featherweight proved her worth this week.

Monday Making

Time for a little linky party
to share what YOU'RE up to.

I sat down and did a little dump and sew quilt top this weekend.
(my affectionate term for dumping out the scraps
and sewing them together)

I LOVE dumping the scraps out....
choosing some pretty colors....
PUZZLING them all together.

I'll be quilting this
and getting it sent off soon.
The baby is due ANY day.

What are you MAKING this week??

I made ONE piece of pie earlier in the week for a gift...
and I couldn't STOP.

I kept digging around.....
Looking for appropriate PIE material.
The NON-calorie kind.

I now have FOUR pieces of pie.
FOUR little potholders
READY for gifting!

This paper pieced pattern is based on this one.
(mine has the addition of a plate)

I dare you to try and make JUST ONE.

Baby snuggles

I HAVE to make something for the new babies.

Homemade baby things are not OPTIONAL.
They are required.

This little baby blanket made with two pieces of flannel....
four cute little ribbon "tags"....
and hand quilting ALL around...
is one of my "GO TO" baby gifts these days.

I LOVE the happy animal print.
SO fun.

I added a little how to video to my YOUTUBE channel
a while back describing how I make these little cuddly blankets.

I'll ADD a book or two for older brother 
I'm going to head over and meet my new little friend.
I am SO ready for
some NEW BABY snuggles!!!
