Last two days produced finishing touches on UFO's- yeah!

The last two days have been great for all the new UFO sewing projects I have had going. I always seem to produce under pressure and these were a few things that I had kicking around for awhile, that just needed 5 minutes of time to complete. A fun blanket for one of my sister's upcoming baby showers with some of the fabulous minky we just purchased! A couple of blocks for the Saratoga Socialites Quilt Guild and the welcome banner for a block of the month club at my local quilt shop, KC. Then my new passion, baby shoes with the bonded sherpa fleece and suede footbeds! My mom is attending two baby showers next weekend in Seattle for friends children and I decided to give her a little something handmade to take. I love the various Japanese fabrics we have been collected for these shoes. The pink pair is a pair I finally finished to send to my sister. She is starting to hang out in the nursery they have set up and look at all the little baby things. I just sent off two boxes of Ellie's clothes that will hopefully go to good use. It was fun going through them, it was like remembering Ellie in all the various items and the events of her almost two years that took place in them. What fun! Also I made lots of progress in cleaning out closets (can I store fabric and yarn in them?) to take items to a local children's consignment sale that will happen this coming weekend. It feels great to get rid of some clutter. I also found some "new" clothes for Sam in looking through Max's old things. It is great fun to remember Max at Sam's age and then as I dress Sam, I see such a connection between the two brothers. What fun! Okay all kids in bed . . . off to finish a few more projects. Oops I need to turn the lights off for the Earth Day hour black-out, maybe a book by candlelight!
