The flowers at the top I made into hair clips, haven't done anything with the others but might embellish and make a few pins.

For these purse skirts I took kids tote bags cut the handles off, made skirts for the bottom and added ribbon for the waist line, handles and then put shells for the tops.

LOL Suzi, I don't have a little one to watch most days like you do, a lot of work that is! I'm thinking of trying my first quilt, maybe a baby quilt and something very easy. My niece is having another baby so would be a nice gift.

DD finished a quilt for her little boy. Here it is. Hope this is not too big. I say go ahead and give it a go. It would be such a precious gift.

I finished a baby blanket for the new grandson due next month and have started another baby blanket. Haven't worked on them as much as I should.

Well you still have time and it is great one is finished. At least since it is not hot it is the perfect time to sew them. When does the next blanket have to be done by? (or is it for the same bub?)

I have a friend in England (DS2's ex) who is expecting a baby girl March 12. I thought about sending it to her but not sure yet. Then I have a big blanket that I started last year for DS1 & his fiancee. It's black & purple stripes with a dash of color between each skein. That one is going to take a lot of time to finish and I need to get busy on it. I'd like to give it to them for Christmas.

It sounds like the next one you need to work on is the big one for DS and his finacee. That will take a long time and if Summer is hot (since it missed us) it would be hard to work on then. It is also something that I am sure they would appreciate to keep and Christmas is not that far away LOL I mean it is February and in fact the month is speeding by, or it seems that way since it is such a short month I guess.
