So, you saw the blue ones, now here are the pink. Who knows which ones we'll use?

This bag was a super-duper generous gift from dear Dana. The picture in the catalog was so cute! Unfortunately, the kit did not come with the button or the wide ric-rack. Which was disappointing because the local Joann's had only the purple and brown, not the cool matching teal for the bag. The fabric is still great and I enjoy the bag. The best part? There are some strips left! I may be able to squeeze out a diaper bag with this stuff if I can find the perfect pattern.

These quick bags are great for so many things! I've used them for knitting projects, snacks, gifts. The kids use them for their art supplies, those last minute things they need in the car, etc. I've made them in several sizes, depending on the size of the fabric scraps I'm using. If you are on my Christmas list, you may be getting one (if I can get motivated before this baby comes).

Newborn stash. These are all pocket diapers from the Very Baby pattern. There are 25 which I'm happy with, except for the fact that I put the velcro on backwards. Lucky I just give them away when I'm done with them. These will be used with premie sized prefolds of which I have just a dozen.

In quilting ventures, this one is called a 'whole cloth' quilt. Which means to me, there are only 3 parts. The top, bottom and binding. A good place to start if someone has gifted you with this fabric. And, you are learning to quilt. It is backed with chenille and bound with some more handmade binding. This was not as easy as it looked. That is a lot of fabric to shift around and stuff under the arm of a standard sewing machine. This one is larger than the purple/orange one- it almost fits nicely on a single bed.

Tiny baby socks. In blue. We are patiently waiting for a new addition around here. Since we don't know what color socks we will need, I've already cast on the pink ones. This is some great yarn. Stretchy cotton with elastic. I'm hoping they will stay on wiggly feet.

The quilt I thought was never going to happen. You can refer back to the original post from May 29, 2008. I am usually proud of my ability to complete projects in a timely manner- except for quilt projects. My dear quilting friend has inspired me to take out all of my unfinished quilting projects and complete them. While she holds my hand, because I'm a complete quilting idiot. Really. We sit once a week for 2 hours and peck away. Amazingly, we are making great progress. My new mantra: "Do not cut out anything new, quilt related."
