Babies Are Everywhere!

I've been making lots and lots of baby gifts lately.  And, I just realized I didn't take a picture of the bibs I made before I gave them away!  Dang it!  They were really cute.

My co-worker Chad and his wife are expecting a baby this spring.  It's a girl and they are going to name her Ruby.  I was super excited to finally have a reason to make this lady bug quilt.  All that's left to do is applique lady bugs around the outer white border.  Gonna be awesome.

I've been putting off finishing my dresden plate quilt.  I'm never sure why until I work on it some more.  Turns out that I hate doing them.  I suck at them... My corners aren't pointy, the blades are uneven.  Then there was that awkward moment when I realized that my template plastic wasn't heat resistant... Crap.  Now to buy more template plastic and some iron cleaner.  At least I have everything but the centers done.

I have a ton of blades left over and I was planning on using them for my niece's graduation quilt this May.  But, now that I hate dresdens, I'm now sure what I'm going to do.  Her school colors are red and white.
So, I also made 2 fabric John Deere books and 2 bibs that I forgot to take pictures of.  And, they were so cute, too! One was a carrot and the other was a pea pod.  I know!  Adorable!

Then, I made monkey cupcakes for her office baby shower.  They were banana/ chocolate chip with nutella frosting.  They were so good.  I missed the baby shower on Thursday (my day off) and brought them in Friday.  I won't be denied my food day.  But, guess who called off sick on Friday.  Yeah, exactly.  I stayed up until midnight for those damn things, too.  Ugh.

Now, Kammi's birthday is this Wednesday.  I bake for everyone's birthday but since she missed her monkey cupcakes, I'm not feeling very generous anymore.
