Baby gift for my next nephew: Mocs and Hats

 My bro. Phil and his wife Laurel are having a baby boy. they are due just over a week before me, so our little lady will have a cousin her age:). I am really excited for them. I used the purl bee moc pattern for them. I free handed the little hat.

Here are the 3 pairs of mocs that i've made so far. I made the gray and yellow mocs for Baby #3, I couldn't help myself.

34 weeks and a baby quilt

 Here is a shot of the belly. I am really popping out was bound to happen. I am currently struggling with just about every kind of mobility these days. We are trying to redo our bathroom DIY style and I am really bummed that I can't be more help. It also means I need to wait around for Bry to help do most of the work and I can't just plow ahead with the project with reckless abandon, like I usually do.

On the upside, I am almost done Christmas shopping. I am hoping to have it all bought, wrapped and shipped by the time I hit 37 weeks (Dec 6th). I want it all done, so I can enjoy the holidays without worrying about going into labor before I am all ready for Christmas.

also, I made a quilt for the baby! I feel like all the blankets and clothes that i'm drawn to this time around are all very unisex...nothing girly. I don't know why, maybe she will be a tomboy? anyway, I did use a floral for the front and I think that gives it enough feminine flair. The front is a Joel Dewberry print and the back is an emerald Kona cotton. For the quilting I used size 3 pearl cotton in various colors and just free handed the quilting. I bound it with a B&W stripe fabric. I didn't really feel up to a piecing project for this quilt, but I think it still turned out really nice. Hopefully this little chick will dig it.

Cross blanket

 I crocheted this little baby blanket for baby sparks. I used Lion Brand thick 'n' quick. I wanted to have a beefy blanket for cold weather.
