Fabric Finds

I think I might've mentioned a trip with my mom to the local Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft store. While Mom headed over to the yarn section for a little look, I made a beeline for the quilting cottons. Imagine my delight when I discovered nearly a whole wall of Kona Solids. I was like a little kid in a candy shop! I hadn't gone in with a project in mind, but about 45 minutes later I left with a stack of Kona solids as well as two coordinating prints, my mind racing with the possibilities! 

Aren't they pretty? I love the little birdies!
I still haven't decided exactly what I'll do with these fabrics, but they'll definitely be devoted to another baby quilt, possibly involving various sized inset squares like this quilt from Fresh Lemons. I'm still mulling the possibilities though, searching for the absolutely perfect pattern because this wee quilt is destined for a special little Christmas gift of my own! (I know - crazy, huh?! Hubby and I are super excited!)

While I was busy choosing and matching my fabrics, my mom was off selecting yarn for an afghan for the baby, too. Unbeknownst to me, however, Mom had already knitted/crocheted two other amazing baby blankets and was already at work at another! This baby is going to be fully kitted out with homemade blankets, if nothing else!

Afghan #1 - knitted in the softest, palest yellow yarn

Afghan #2 - crocheted in super soft pastels

A closeup of #2 - aren't the colours fabulous?!

It was too early to tell you both at the last Bee Blessed I could attend, and, it's been so crazy the past little while that I haven't really seen you since to tell you. Baby bump is getting bigger by the moment, it seems - you won't recognise me next time you see me!! ;)
