Baby sewing

As I mentioned, I have been busy. Since my middle daughter, Maili, opened her box today, I can reveal what has kept me busy.

Here she is - due any day.

This is the cross stitched card that she is holding. Surprisingly, it didn't take me long to do.

 I call this a donut but I guess you could call it a nursing pillow.

Future daddy, Casey, thought it was a nice neck pillow.

The box.

Full to the brim.

 I guess she was a bit surprised.

I made a navy blue nursing cover.

Here she is trying it on.

Little brother Eric liked the onsie. (I didn't make it.)

Flannel blankets.

Flannel face cloths.

I had told her to take her pick of hats that I had knit.

Burp cloths.

A change pad similar to the top one - trimmed in mauve.

 A rainbow fabric basket.

 And a smaller fabric basket made with just a square of fabric.
Just a few, hopefully, useful items for mom and baby.

Now, I'm off to finish the baby quilt and the rainbow blanket. I'll take a photo of them once they are both finished.

Happy Mother's Day tomorrow!!


  1. Real life photos, what a moment in their lives, a box of hand made lovely goodies. You have been busy, and finally to see them all, no wonder you kept it a secret. Happy Mother's Day to you.

  2. Did I scroll down too fast, the baskets are so bright, useful, and maybe my pick of all the wonderful goodies.

  3. Hello Dolores,

    Happy Mother's Day to you. The expressions on Maili and Casey's face says it all. What a lovely gift box of goodies for the expectant family.

    Happy days.

  7. Wow, can you posy a list your supplies. That truly does look like a perfect group for expectant parent's
    Good job!

  8. Whew! I hope you put your feet up today and had a good rest on Mother's Day:)

  9. I'm sure the new wee one will be outfitted perfectly with all those goodies. Lots of work for you, but I already know how much love went into it.
