Potpourri Friday With Pictures!

Okay, so my dial-up at home doesn't do pictures so good :( Anyway, here are the pictures that match Friday's post:

That's my back yard. And the weird thing is that it all melted on Sunday. And then last night it snowed again so it looks the same today. I declare - I don't know what's going on around here in the weather department!

And here is the fabric and pattern we are using for Michelle's baby nursery:

She is not a "ruffles and lace" kind of girl - so we are going with the pleated box skirt for the crib. I think it is going to be so pretty. And we are not making the flowers - we are going to make stars to match her Twinkle Twinkle Little Star theme.

Here is the sweet little crib blanket:

And I love doing these burp cloths - they are fun and easy. I did mine with flannel.

I really like that brown flannel with the bear print. I'm trying to figure out a quilt pattern idea where I could use that for the backing. I think I will go with reds and blues instead of the traditional baby colors.

So that's what I've been up to lately. Happy Winter!

The snow is SO pretty and it always makes me think that things look so quiet and peaceful.

I love that crib blanket! Did you make it? I'm so impressed....I sew but just haven't learned to do quilts and such but I need to learn somehow. What cute burps too...pinks and blues. Am I remembering correctly that they aren't finding out what the baby is or maybe they are but just not time yet?

The snow - it's gotta be global warming, eh??

The nursery is going to be so cute.

The burp clothes are so sweet. I can just see a cute little baby resting against one on someone's shoulder. The bear print would make cute jammies for a little one!
