Is it STILL January ???

Jeez - it's still January and I've broken my "I Won't Buy Anymore Fabric" resolution twice !! Ok, in my defence, I decided I had too much baby fabric/flannels/PUL fabric and, since the local FL store had one of their famous 50 % off sales .... well, you now what happened! I wanted to use up the white w polka dot flannel and found that oh so cute pink Owls flannel. So, I spent my Saturday night making up 4 receiving blankets, 2 pink owls/white on the reverse, 1 just white polka dot and one just pink owls. They tell me new parents just can't have enough of these blankets, so hopefully my niece will appreciate these!
This baby (grand niece to be) has truly inspired me. I offered to make a baby carrier cover, but once I read through the pattern - well, it was going to be kinda difficult. So instead I picked up this waterproof one and used the Owl decals I picked up @ FL (during their last 50% off sale). The flap with the HOOT decal lifts up so you can see baby, and the flap with the Owl decal opens so you can put the baby in.  Again, hoping dear niece likes these offerings 'cause there's more!
 This is a pic of Pellon's free Frou Frou bag which I am going to try to make as a diaper bag in fab "baby" fabric. Again, I'm told new parents just can't have enough of these either.
I'm still in love with this Peter Rabbit fabric , I made a baby bib out of it for the shower. The green will be the lining fabric and I plan on using a bright green for the ruffles, wish me luck! And in my spare time I'm back quilting Felines and Flutterbies ... finished another block last  night. Oh.... this may just get done in time for the guild's quilt show in October - HA!

P.S. My sister gave the wee hearts quilt (shown in the second last post that I finished off with machine quilting) to my niece last weekend, and she loved it! Joint projects are great :)
