two in one day!

It is so nice to finally get a project done.  My nephew and his wife are expecting any day- for sure by Tuesday so I wanted to get the Baby Blanket done before her birth!  I am holding it for randsom thought until I am able to hold their new baby girl!  It was inspired by Samantha at  It is a no hole granny.  I love the colors but the shaping is not as nice as I would have liked it to be!  But is it made with love! 

You can see the curling of the edges!  I don't know how to block and perhaps that would have helped?  I know they will love it regardless! 
I also made a nursing cover for them.  We saw one at a mom to mom sale and they seemed rather expensive and so I made one for less than $6!  The worst part is that my sewing machine broke 5 minutes before I was finished and had to stitch some by hand!  I love the fabric- pretty and feminie!  There are patterns for the all over it you are interested in making one too- about 45 minutes of time and simple!

I hope you have had a great weekend- mine was!
Onto start my next project!

I had a spectacular Easter!  I hope everyone did as well.  I had the good fortune to have the day off!  I spent time with family and also made a new summer bag!  I tried to follow a pattern that I found online but ended up doing my own thing. 

I loved the fabric colors and am not sure my photos did it justice.  I had fun trying something new!  My sewing machine got a work out and now my fingers better get going to get the baby blanket in progress completed!

Our family also does an Easter egg coloring contest!  Here are the original eggs!

And the top 3 are: 

So much fun and it adds memories to the time we spend together! 

Now time to get the dishes done!
