Nesting or CraftinessPosted: April 11, 2011
About 6 years ago I started to make a quilt. 5 years later, all the pieces are still not sewn together, therefore I have no quilt still. About a month before Kylee was born I decided to finish that quilt before she came and I didn’t have time to anymore. So I did finish that quilt, but then it gave me the bug to get crafty some more. So I made some stinkin’ cute name blocks that hang above her bed. I was so proud of myself but everyone said I was nesting.
Well, I must still be in nesting mode because I have kept at it since Kylee was born. I made her a blanket and pillow so she could have them to play with on the floor. I loved it so much I’ve decided I’m making blankets for all my friends that have babies from here on out. Then I made Kylee and Lexie (my niece) tag blocks that Kylee loves to play with, so maybe I’ll include one of those in the baby gifts as well. Then I saw a WAY cute idea that I want to try next, I just wish I had seen it earlier so Kylee could have had it for the winter. They are fleece hats!! One will look like a penguin and the other a snowman!! I’m excited to see if I can make it look right. Just need to find the time.
But I’m doing well on my goal to make baby gifts!! I’ve made baby Calloway his blanket and matching pillow and I actually love it more than I love Kylee’s! While looking for patterns for hats, I saw that Martha Stewart sends e-mails for a “Craft a Day” and I’m waiting to see something that I really want to do. My mom went through this stage at one point too which makes me curious if it’s a stage or if it will last. I guess we will see!!
