This & That...

I have actually been doing some quilting, just finishing up some UFOs. Right now I am focused on finishing the hand quilting on this quilt that I started in April 2006.
30s fabrics just say baby to me, so I hope to have this finished soon to hang in the baby room. It is hand pieced and I have about 1/2 of the 16 blocks quilted. I love the soft look of hand quilting.

And with a new baby on the way I have to do a little baby knitting. I found this yummy bamboo yarn at Hobby Lobby and knew it would make great socks and a hat. It is so soft and snugly.

The baby socks are so adorable and that's a great color yarn. Aren't they fun to knit?
