Baby to be's stocking

All the snowman stockings

The newest addition just waiting for a name to put on

The soon-to-be new addition to our family needed a stocking, as the soon-to-be big brother noticed it didn't have one. Sticking with the snowman theme I made two wool felted snowman to attach to the stocking and added a ladder so they could be sneaking a peak inside.

K's Bedspread

I finally finished Keenan's big boy bedspread! It was fun to design and fun to make the applique animals, then I got bored and had a hard time finishing the quilting and piecing. Hence the length of time these things take me.
I used the white animal print fabric from Ikea as the inspiration as we already had matching artwork and stuffed animals for this print from his nursery. I found the duck print and picked up all the solid cotton for the appliques from Fancy Tiger.
I used wool batting for the first time. What a great product, all natural and warm. A 40% coupon at Hanncock Fabrics helped with that.
Mom's happy it's finished and Keenan loves the animals and little fish swimming around his bed. Now if we can just keep the dog off of it...

There has been sewing, actually a lot of sewing. Just not much documentation as this belly gets bigger my energy seems to run out quickly. I have two weeks until my sewing table and machine need to go into storage to make way for the birthing tub and then crib. Hence, lots of sewing.

So, in the next two weeks you should see (cross my fingers that I can pull it off):
Keenan's finished big boy quilt
Prayer flags for a friend
The baby's new christmas stocking
Silky bunnies for Keenan to give the baby
possibly baby clothes
baby knitting projects
completed costumes for Keenan's christmas costume trunk
cloth wipes
burp clothes

Here are a few things that are finished and happened to get photographed!

When the baby arrives, Keenan is getting a doll, we decided it needed a sling to match mommies.

Lots of babies have been arriving in our circle of friends, a few quick blankets to welcome them.
