Here are the blankets. You've seen them all before, but I couldn't help taking pictures of all of them this AM and then show you what an AMAZING job I did on the binding of the big quilt (which took longer than anything else). I know, I'm amazing. Again, huge props to my friend Millie for walking me through a couple of things. OH, and I ended-up using embroidery floss to tie it instead of yard. Yarn was just TOO thick. I don't love the floss look. But frankly, it's done. And it's still adorable. Oh yeah, and on the upper right is the "sensory" blankets I made out of my extra fabric. I've heard kids love these. I don't think it was an option when I had the boys.
Here's the burp cloths. I found the pattern here. I ended-up trying out the batting, and I really like how thick they are. We'll see how much I love them. But frankly, who wouldn't with all the cute flannel choices out there?
I also bought more flannel then I needed for both the bibs and the burp cloths, so if you see them at a shower near you... well, don't be too disappointed. :) Oh, and the diaper bag came yesterday. I really LOVE all the pockets. I knew I would. I'm not in love with the fact it doesn't scream FASHION DIVA, but frankly -- I probably wouldn't love it if it did. It's great, I'm excited to fill it.
So there, can you believe it? I must admit I still look longingly over at the boy's infant stuff. I really love boy's infant stuff. The soft blues, browns and greens. Plus, they have much better patterns. Seems like with a girl all they have to come-up with is a heart or a flower. Of course, then I check out the dresses and I'm back with my full attention to the female side. And let's not even talk shoes. Shall we?
