It's Been A While...

but I've been keepin' busy all the same...

This afghan was started 2-years ago. I worked on it for a couple of weeks and then something came up that needed my time and so I put it up on a shelf where it stayed until last month. I am so pleased to have it complete (this last Saturday night) and it looks good sitting on the back of the couch.

The Happy Hallow quilt is now ready for the spider webs in each of the four corners, that will have to wait until April however as I have several other things requiring my attention at the moment.

During my time away from blogging I also filled an order for a lady at church, who was in need of five ties for her sister's wedding. 1 Infant, 1 toddler, an 8-year old and 2 high schoolers. I had a good chuckle the day after the wedding when I happened to be blog surfing and saw the same fabric used to rehupolster a of couple chairs on a blog.

A cousin of mine is expecting her second little girl at the end of the month and so I spent today putting some things together to send. For the big sister, I have a a balloon ball finished and a crayola portfolio almost complete...would have had it done but the ribbon I thought I had for the handles is no where to be found.
For the new sweet baby...a recieving blanket in fabrics selected by the proud grandma (my Aunt) and in the works, a darling little summer outfit that will be posted in a few days.                
While on the topic of babies, a young lady at church is expecting her first and I am hosting a shower for her at the end of the month. She has a shy baby however and with two different ultrasounds we still don't know if it is a boy or girl. She likes alphabet fabrics and I found this fun fabric I thought could go for either gender. Today I put together this portable high chair, I saw the idea on a blog and cannot recall where. The lady gave the overall dimensions for it and a picture of the layout and I was able to figure it out from there. I don't know how she did her's but I put interfacing on each piece of fabric and then added batting. I think it turned out pretty well but is a bit small for an almost four-year-old who was all to happy to model it for me :-)


Also put together this diaper/wipes clutch...more fun things to come

Boy, you've been busy! I love the cute fabric you've chosen for the high-chair holder -- it's perfect for boy or girl!
