I made a warm chenille blanket and a tumbling block quilt.
Sturdy baby shoes for those first steps.
A soft book for quiet places and times.
A big kitty to support baby's back while sitting and to play with.
The start of a reading library to stimulate the mind and foster a love of reading.
For the first few months, we were all sure this baby was a boy. Sonographers seemed to think it was a boy, but then they finally got a clear picture. She's a little girl! So we shifted gears from blue to pink and purple.
I have three other grand children and made them each cozy quilts. This one is a chessboard.
And a four patch for my granddaughter. This was the first meander quilting I've done and I loved it. It reminds me of Persian lamb.
We live two thousand miles away, so I don't see them often enough, so each quilt has a note tucked inside that tells them everytime they wrap up in their quilt, it is a hug from me.
As soon as that is done, there are more baby things I want to make: a lavender and purple quilt, a few receiving blankets, and a couple of bibs, plus a few things I want to look for at the baby store.
My daughter in law has been as busy as I have making all sorts of things for this baby. She's very creative and has done some beautiful things.
