Still in the spirit of finishing up, these jammies were intended for Christmas last year. I've finally finished them. I actually made them each a pair- "matchies". Now both officially finished in time to cut out some for this year.

A couple of diapers for us. These are larges. Lemon colored outside with light blue snaps and light blue elastic binding. Even in poor lighting, you can see the great size tags! I am very happy with how they turned out!

Here is a patriotic zippy diaper bag. This one is a keeper! It should hold at least 3 diapers at once.

The very last bit of scrap from some of my favorite fabric. This little guy is big enough for a gift card.

Here is a diaper that is showing off the new tag! These tags are so much more fun than the boring ones I used to order.

A 2 layer flannel recieving blanket.

Here is our fun kitchen craft this week. These are peanut butter buckeyes. After the tree nut. We made 2 cookie sheets full and a few days later, there are 4 pieces left. Mmmmm...

A few doll diapers. In trying to clean out the 'old projects' bin, I found a dozen unfinshed doll diapers. I am really trying to get all old projects completed before the new year.

The rest of the scrap flannel from old projects. Some of these have a waterproof backing.

A great use of all the scrap flannel I end up with.

A few new wipes/washcloths. I was really trying to fix the serger again, the tension was still a little loose while doing these, but the whole thing needs to be rethreaded again anyway. I've learned that if you don't use the serger very frequently, it will not like you very much when you want to use it.

Due to a super fun cooking project brewing in the kitchen, we had to whip up a new, fun apron! The wide red tape is not as bold in person. There is also a lacy edge around the body of the apron, and the 2 ginham pockets at the bottom.

Those cutie bunny tags I put on all the girly panites were not super expensive, (about a nickel each), but I found a blog that described how to make your own printed tags. Here is where I used all the twill tape I had, with rubber stamps, and a special iron-set ink.
Very fun!

These are the last of ten pairs. She just loves these, because I put special bunny tags on the outside back. That makes it very easy for her to put them on the right way.

The first recieving blanket (this time around). Flannel with rounded corners. I may have enough flannel to whip out at least 4 more, along with some new wipes.

These cuties will be used for diapers- I've recently started to run out of them so I thought I'd try making my own. Fun and the kids did most of the work!

Some new tags for my sewn creations.

Three zippy diaper bags. These hold 1-2 diapers at a time. Or, in our case lately, at least 2 wet swimsuits.

Another. This is a pretty color blue yarn.

So outdoor lighting is not better so far. The heart shaped beads are so beautiful, I may take another photo later.

A bit blurry, but I was in a hurry to gift these. Some men's socks. This is some beautiful berocco yarn. I love the striping!

I tried outdoor photos for better lighting, but the colors turned out funny on this one. This is a sparkly black fabric with tiny pink hearts in 2 colors of pink and red. The lining is red sparkly with hearts. Pink snaps and a scalloped bottom edge. Even with the offer of a pocket, Abigail is reluctant to even put it on.

Another dozen diapers. Oddly enough, I will have to start being more organized about this. We will be needing about 30 mediums and larges ourselves next year.

I seem to be photographically challenged today. Maybe better lighting will help? Here is a pendant I made, the heart colors represent the birthstone colors of the kids. The crayon shows size perspective.

A horrible picture, but I've been knitting this shawl with some super beautiful quality yarns. It is just not turning out how I pictured. I think I'm going to rip and start again.
