This summer 3 baby boys will be added to the ever growing list of grandchildren my wonderful in-laws have. Not only that, but my father in law has two little grand-nephews being born this year also. Maybe it's caused by global warming. :-)
My two new little nephews were the perfect opportunity to get back into making baby stuff!
My brother-in-law Lincoln and his wife Mimi are getting ready to welcome their first child into their home, about the same time I'm due in August. Lincoln is a maniac when it comes to baseball, so what better way to say congratulations than with baseball gear for their little guy. I made a little whole cloth baseball quilt for baby David, and found him a little matching outfit he should fit into just in time for next year's baseball season.
My sister-in-law Stephanie and her husband Mike are expecting their 4th baby (2nd son) in the next few weeks. I figure Stephanie probably has plenty of quilts by now, but little Elliot definitely needed his own initialed baby gear. The pants are made from a pattern in Amy Butler's Little Stitches book. Super easy, and I think adorable. The picture doesn't really do them justice.
These will all start wending their way out west very soon! In the meantime, I'm almost finished with a super secret project that I can't wait to show you.
Have a great weekend!
