That scrappy fabric and those quilt squares are pretty, alwaysinmyroom! Shocked  I really love that purple wonky house <3

Glad you ladies think Harley's cute Cheesy If you want to see what he really looks like, there's a pic of him in the post I made on the amigurumi board.

Here are five burp cloths I sewed up for my baby, who's due the 30th:

One side is dimple dot "minky" my fiance bought for me at Hobby Lobby (I petted a remnant then put it back and he picked it up and insisted on buying it) and the other side is some Spider-Man flannel that I'd had in my stash. I got the idea for the shape from some cute burp cloths I'd seen on Pinterest. There was a pattern provided but we don't have a printer so I took some graph paper I had and drew a vaguely similar shape for my own pattern. They're 11" x 16" and super soft, especially after being washed in baby detergent.

I heard that the burp cloths are very handy and that you will probably use a lot of them!  I include some in every new baby package for my friends, whose kids are now having babies!  That minky stuff is so soft and the flannel will be absorbent!  I bet you can't wait to be a mom!

Three more quilt blocks...these are called "buzz saw", ha ha ...I just hope I did them correctly...I had a booger of a time making sure the pointy saw parts weres going the right way! You know when you look at something too long, it gets very confusing!  Anyway, I like them and hope my partner does too.

kbrison, my uncle is hoping I'll have him day late because his birthday is March 31st. The uncle in question is my dad's older brother and happens to be my favorite uncle so I wouldn't mind. Wink

Welcome zcrafter!  Never too late to join...lol with 9 months to go, you have plenty of time to make a lot of projects! I put your link on the first page and you can add it to your signature so you can't get "lost"...

lol I think it would be suited to you if your baby was born on April Fool's Day! Grin  I bet that is one birthday that would be fun to have...I am a March 1 baby...so really, any birthday in March is great! Grin
