finally ... some sewing

Nothing like the last minute - going to a BBQ tomorrow to meet my cousin's first grandchild. The first baby in the next generation. She was born in October, and I have been wondering what to make, and found this lovely touchy feely pattern at Ballarat Patchwork last week and as soon as I saw it, I knew it was "just right." It was nice to hear my machine humming again and I am thrilled with the result. I couldn't help myself and also bought a very cute little horsey rattle squeaky thing. I'm looking forward to meeting Baby Jayde!

She'll love that little minky cuddly. I made one similar to it for my daughter when she was small -- it's been well loved! (and it washes up very well!)

Your little "quilt" for the baby is cute! Here in Utah, we call them Taggie's for all the little tags you put onto them, we usually put all sorts of different ribbons as tags because of the different textures kids love to play with! Remember when kids had satin ribbon around their store bought blankies? Well, that is where the idea came from. Love the little horse!
