The Postman feeds my habit

No words needed on this one.  Joy through the mail!  The first photo is fabrics I have been collection for a baby quilt for either my mom or sister to receive at one of my sister's upcoming baby showers.  Each night after the kids are asleep and our ETSY orders are packed and ready to go, I find myself fondling, folding and just gazing at all the wonderful fabrics I have been collecting.  It has been great fun trying out various blocks and color combinations for this quilt and I think I am finally on the road to getting it done.  I took a bit of a detour today and got a great start on matching PJ pants for my sister-in-law and my two nieces.  It is SIL's birthday, actually today, and I hope to have the matching pants to her in Seattle within a week, but we will see.  Tonight I wasn't in the PJ pant mode, so I cut out and sewed 20 of the 60 blocks I will need for this quilt.  I am doing the Simply Delightful pattern and so far it has lived up to its billing.  Time will tell.  Off to bed for me, but with some luck I will have lots to show this week.
After the quilt is ready for the long-arm and the pants are done, I am hoping to tackle a few stuffed bunnies, one for each of the kids.  All this and taking care of two two year olds, hosting easter and a six year old with a short school week - will I ever actually complete all I set out to do?
