I'm a little burnt out on baby quilts these days. For Ron's cousin Alexis and her new baby Zachary I used a store-bought Dwell Studio blanket and appliqued the baby's name on it. Then I decided to hand draw the giraffe image and applique a onesie and sew a giraffe stuffie. Because I can't ever seem to stop, I had to add trim to store-bought baby pants. I also wanted to put a binding on the blanket but I didn't have nearly enough fabric and of course couldn't find it again since I bought it over a year ago. So, all in all, handmade touches to store-bought items. Fun, quick, satisfying.
36 year old mother to 6 1/2 year old Talia, 3 yr old Alex, and 7 month old Shayna. I retired from Pediatric Intensive Care Nursing in 2007. My family moved from Philadelphia to Madison, Wisconsin in July 07. I love to craft, quilt, cook and read. Spending time with my kids is ok too! In the last few years I've gotten into green living by trying to eat local, compost, cloth diaper and garden. As a family we are enjoying exploring Madison and transitioning from being East Coast people to Midwesterners. (Updated 09/10)
