Boys on the Brain

For some reason, I'm drawing a blank on blog posts this week. Maybe it's because last weekend was so much fun and I spent all last week getting excited about it. This week, I'm just going through the motions and crossing things off my to-do list.

I have been sewing however.
I have been invited to a baby shower for Saturday and I've been busy making these...A burp clothe/changing pad, taggie blanket, and a diapee/wipee case. So, the invitation asks that we each bring one 12x12 scrapbook page ready for pictures. Well, I'm not really a scrapbooker. I think I'd like it if I wasn't into sewing so much. I just don't feel like dragging everything out each time I want to work on it. So, with some trepidation, this is what I came up with............
It's a bad picture, I know. A bit hard to see, but I did machine zig zag stitch around the green rectangles and also sewed on the rick rack. I had to get a little sewing in there somewhere, or they'd never know it was from me. Nothing knock out, but I think it'll do.
I also received an order from a great customer of mine for 2 sets of boy burp clothe/taggie blankets. So, then she e-mailed me again for another one, possible two! What's up with everyone having boys lately? That's ok, it stretchs my brain a little creatively.

I love that you are doing boy stuff. I have two boys and a girl and feel guilty because I love sewing for my daughter and don't sew anything for my sons. I am going to do a superhero cape soon...maybe that'll appease them for awhile. The patchwork fabric is great.

hi Christie -
good luck with the cape. yes, I do love to sew for both kids, not just my girl. I've had to stretch a bit to come up with things for my boy - but it always fun.
