I Love Making Baby Sets

I had so much fun last week making a gift for a baby shower. Friends of ours are expecting their first child in just a few weeks and besides giving them whatever Max's outgrown, ie diapers, clothes, pacifiers etc, I decided to make them this little set.
The set Includes:
1- 30" x 36" cuddle quilt- cotton, flannel, chenille, and satin.
1- 30" x 36" oversized recieving Blanket
2- 12" x 18" Burp Cloths
I even had enough scrap left to make a tag blanket for the little one. Max just loves his; I like to make them out of high contrasting materials so that they have visual interest for the Little Ones. They also have a variety of textures, I have found that Max plays with his when we are in the car, it's a little treasure fro him to focus on.
I really love making these little sets. I think I have enough fabric to make 4-5 sets, hopefully I'll get started on those this week and I'll be abel to add them to my Etsy site.... COMING SOON.
I'm so excited!

So Much to Catch up with

Now that Christmas is over I'm safe to finally share all of the wonderful things I made! I had such good fun this year. I am enjoying taking this time at home with Max; he is such an inspiration to me. This year for Christmas I made everyone a little something homemade. My Mother In Law calls them Happy Hands at Home. Here is just a taste of what I made: Knitting Projects will have posts to come including patterns:
