Finished this Week:
Snuggler. I know not every baby likes swaddling, and I already have multiple muslin blankets to use for swaddling, but when I found the patter for Lotta Jandotter's Snuggler I couldn't help myself and had to make it immediately. The fabric is Echino linen, the selvage says train. I bought it awhile ago with a purpose and now love it for baby accessories although since it is true linen, I can't use it for anything that will actually touch the baby. I used flannel for the inside because it is too warm in North Carolina (even in winter) to use the fleece called for in the pattern.

Baby Dress. Continuing on a baby theme, I made the Little Geranium pattern in 0-3 months. The pattern is by Made by Rae, and was a fantastic pattern considering I have never made a piece of clothing before in my entire life. The fabric is from the Lisette collection at JoAnn's Fabric and is a "voile". I am definitely going to buy the full pattern and be making more of these in the future.

Out to Sea Quilt Top. This started as a improv log cabin, but I'm blaming pregnancy brain on it turning into a bizarre cross between the coloring of a log cabin and the pattern of courthouse steps. It's not exactly what I pictured, but I'm still pleased with how it turned out. Now to do a back for it....

Quick Change Trousers from Anna Marie Horner's "Handmade Beginnings". Pants are next on my to do list as I teach myself how to make clothes.
Quilt Backs. As I opened my closet where I store finished quilt tops, I realized that I have five quilt tops that don't have backs ready for quilting. I plan to start dedicating more of my time to improving my quilting skills, so I need to get these backs done ASAP.
Headbands. I have a horrible fear that my baby girl will have no hair, so I want at least a couple headbands ready to go.
Out to Sea Quilt Back. Must...finish...quilt back... so I can quilt this! This quilt back is also my February task for "A Lovely Year of Finishes" over at Bittersweet Designs.
Charity quilts. I have one ready to be quilted, and fabric set aside for three more. I have baby on the brain though, so it is hard for me to concentrate on non-baby projects.
Baby! This little girl's due date is today, so hopefully she will be making an appearance soon.
