I am currently working on a quilt for myself finally after making several for other people. This is my first one with triangles and I'm nervous about making it all match up nicely. Perfection is not my goal just as long as there's a pattern to the madness.

Krista love the pants. Wish I had found that pattern when my girls were little.

Rachel love the hutch. I wish I could find a thread holder like that. I have a plastic bin for my thread at the moment. I will show my husband this picture and see if he can make me one.

A thread holder like that can be found on many craft company websites such as Herrschners.

Bridgette, yes many craft supply stores carry those thread spool holders. I have two of them and find the spindles very dilicate and easily broken off. I did find a vintage spool holder a couple of years ago. The little spokes seem so much stronger. I'll bet your DH could make you a strong holder.

Rachel, your hutch makes me want to declutter my sewing room! Won't look as nice as yours, but maybe a bit more functional. :)

I have a question for you ladies. What is the best gift to make for a baby for a baby shower? I have 2 cousins pregnant right now and due in June. I would like to make them something but not sure what would be the best thing. I ask you all because many of you make baby items!! Thanks.

Burp cloths!!! You never have enough to clean, wipe up, etc. I also cloth diapers, so if you can make those if they are going to cloth diaper. And diaper covers. Too cute.

Got two separate orders for aprons, which I finished along with some extras to sell on my Facebook page. Haven't posted then yet as the last one still needs a finishing touch!

There are patterns for bibs and burp cloths on the web site sew4home.com. It's a magical site.

If they are going to nurse, I have a patter for a reversable nursing cover, or jug jacket as I like to call them. Also, if you want to get them a great book, " Feed me I'm yours " has some great information in it. I used it when my girls were babies and it's been updated several times since.

Thanks for the ideas. I'm not a talented sewer, but we will see what I can pull off. Thank you Betty for the website. Judy if I find out that they will be nursing I'll get with you on your pattern. Thank you so much!

I checked out the site you mentioned, Betty. Its pretty cool! 5 new ideas a week...whew. Not sure I could keep up on checking them out. Do you sew with a Janome? One of my fave fabric shops has that brand. They also make kits and have long arm machines. I've got a long way to go learning my Brother though. Thanks for the tip.

I will be finishing a pair of crochet slippers today. All I have left is to sew in my ends. This will be another UFO done and then I will start the next pair of crochet slippers. I have 5 more pairs to make for friends and family and then I can move onto the baby items.
