working on a little quilt for a little man!



my favorite cousin had a baby boy, Jude, and this little gift will be for him. I just love working with soft flannels for babies gifts. I am going to work off of the baby lattice pattern from Moda via Amy Smart. Love the soft colors in her pattern!! Mine are a little brighter, but still perfectly baby boy-ish!

first granny square!!


Okay, so it's not finished yet. But, it did take me 90 minutes to get to this point and be happy with it :/. I am working off of the Sunshine Day Baby Afgan pattern from Rosy Little Things. Isn't it going to be adorable!?

stocking stuffer - last minute!

I told my boss I would make her son something cute with some of the Timeless Treasures Owl fabric I had.



True to form, I waited until the last minute to even think up an idea for it. So I tried some of the homemade handwarmer tutorials that are all over the web...

I almost caught the microwave on fire... More than once. Still have to figure out how this project works. I had 100% cotton materials - but the rice still kept smoking! Not instant rice either. Either way, I didn't feel safe giving something like that to a 7 year old...

So I went with this. A Tooth Pillow. Here's hoping he likes it.

and I'm spent.

Just finished the game quilt!

SO happy to be finished, but I kind of think I will be sad to see it go! I haven't invested this much time in one thing in a long time...

white elephant exchange!

I am such a Grinch when it comes to holiday work parties. It has something to do with the awkwardness of getting together with people you work with that you don't spend time with outside of work... Nevertheless, they are going to happen, and they are still a lot of fun ;)

I realized at the last moment I didn't have a gift for our white elephant exchange...somehow slipped my mind. So we had some beer bread mix from Grand Tetons Brewing Company (GREAT place, by the way) when we were there in September. So I threw in a Blue Moon and made some bags. *Hopefully* it goes over well!

Well, it's almost finished. Just in time. I am turning the last corner of the binding for the game quilt I started wayyyy back in the spring. It's coming together well. I still have to finish a few of the accessories that go with the quilt, but here are some pics of the main attraction.


Tic-Tac-Toe board and part of the Twister side of the quilt...


Scrabble...



Candyland and the quilt tag...



...just testing out the cuddliness of the quilt - my sleepy husband and our favorite pup.



Now, on to the last corner of the binding and the accessories... T-minus 48 hours 'til gift giving time!
