Minky Baby Shower Gift

I've been working this evening on a baby shower gift for my good friend who is having a little boy...what do you think?  It's a security blanket...I have a crocheted one that I used all the time with my middle child and even use now with Emma.  They are nice for cuddling especially in this heat when you don't really need a full size blanket.  I am LOVING minky!  This one has little monkeys on it, but I also made a second one in girl colors with minkie that I think I will try a shot with on Etsy.  What fun!  I think my little Miss Emma needs one of these soft!

Placemats...I'm on a roll!

Look at me all sewing up a storm!  Lol*  My Dad ordered these placemats from me on Etsy to give to my Mom for an anniversary gift.  Awww, thanks for the sale Dad.  ;)  Hope Mom likes 'em.

Working now on a little boy baby quilt, and also trying to get Emma's pinwheel quilt finished up.  I'll get there, slowly, but surely.  ;)

Christmas in July

I am literally dripping sweat down my cheeks...but still managed to feel cool as I finished this table topper...

...and I found it ironic that my tangerine nail polish sort of matched this project! 

I just love this Minick and Simpson fabric...

This quilt is also available for purchase through my etsy shop.  :)

Baby Girl Number 3

I know I've been MIA for a few months, but I think most of you know we just had a baby!  Well..she's two months old now if you can believe it.  Lol*  Now that things are settling down I've got quilts on the knew I'd be back didn't you?  I'm utterly addicted.  ;)  The SAD thing is I never finished Emma's quilt...but it hasn't been really cool enough to use much more than recieving blankets, so I'm determined to get my act in gear and finish this baby before winter.

That said...I have to show off some pictures...I promise quilty updates soon!  ;)

Here is a picture of the first time I laid eyes on my new little angel...

...the day she came home...

...the first week...

...the second week...
...and if you can believe it, this is her just yesterday!  She's already two months old...look at how much she's grown!

My lil' Emma is even smiling now, lol*  We just love her little dimples!

Hope all is well in blogland, and I will be popping around to visit all my quilting bloggy buddies very soon!  ;)
