I don't know what it's been with me but I have been so slow at getting things done lately.
Preschool has started again (and, by the way, this years class is wonderful!), there is a Youth Conference for our church that I'm on the committee for, and we are trying to pull it all together,
and a WHOLE bunch of kid/family things going on. 

All of these things seem to have depleted my energy for getting some UFO's done.
Something that really bugs me is having an unfinished project lying around. 
Which is silly because it's not like I am in some kind of race or anything.
But, alas, I am a "finish it tonight" kind of gal... 
Not always a good thing.

But FINALLY I was able to finish a couple of them. It's a good thing, too, because if my sewing machine could talk, it would probably have tried to break up with me....for lack of attention! :)

A few months ago, I had an order for a black and white baby quilt. I cut too many squares so I made a couple things out of them.
Here are some baby tag blankets. They are so quick to make up.
I have seen a few little people playing with tag blankets at church.

I also had enough left over black and white squares to sew up this little quilt.
(If only I paid more attention in my math classes....I wouldn't do this to myself!)
I added pink on this one though. I also sewed pink ric-rac around the edges.

And finally, I finished up this wall quilt.
I just love the vintage 30's reproduction prints that are out now.
Craig mom bought me a charm pack of them this summer while we were there.
This is what I made with it.
It will be perfect for summer picnics.
(except in Arizona where we have winter picnics!)

Have a great day!

Jo-Anne - I made one of those baby tag blankets last week - except I used the liner from a cereal box between the layers so it would make a crinkly sound - guess it won't work for a church toy now, huh? I made it for our first grandbaby who should be born in a week or so! We're so excited!
