Baby Gifts

Theresa had her baby the other day so Grandma Pierina will be leaving town soon to be with her.  My little gifts will be tucked inside her suitcase. 

A receiving blanket
and 2 bibs.
This little blanket has 2 pieces of flannelette
of different sizes, sewn together.
The pattern is found HERE.
I also made a little bag for babies
toys and things.
Right now the bag contains the blanket
and bibs.
Congratulations to the new parents Theresa and Brad.

Lynda's Birthday

Now that Lynda's birthday has past and she has received her gift I can post some pictures.  She really likes roosters so I finished using up the fabic she purchased when we were in Lake Tahoe last November for Christine's wedding.  I had already made her placemats out of the this fabric so I thought a table runner would be the next logical thing.

There was one rooster block left
and I didn't have too hard
of a time deciding what
to do with it.
Everyone who gets a gift from me
also receives a bag so
a new bag it was.
I found this grey/black fabric
and thought it
complimented the bag really well.
I put a zipper in the bag also and pockets
so now it has lots of uses.
I am happy that she was really pleased with both.
