Sunday Sewing

It was supposed to snow today, instead we are getting rain. I'm not complaining too much. I only hope it doesn't freeze overnight, otherwise tomorrow morning will be nasty.

DH is traveling again and I had the day to sew. DIL came over after church and we worked on a few baby projects.

For the upcoming baby shower I'm making Penny Pockets for the party favors. Winnie-the-Pooh is the shower theme. Pooh's favorite colors are red, orange and yellow. With red linen leftover from Thanksgiving napkins, orange fabric from another project, a spool of red organza and yellow buttons, I have a growing collection of Penny Pockets. I'm going to fill them Bit O'Honey candy because Pooh loves honey.
Next up we worked on receiving blankets with taggies. I bought four spools of ribbon on clearance the other day that will work with all the flannel we bought a few weeks ago. Here's a couple of the blankets. Notice how the ribbon on the top blanket is inside out? That's what I get for not thinking the project through entirely before stitching.
I finally sewed the sleeves and the hem of DIL's maternity top I started three weeks ago. Of course, I had to get a photo of her in it. Doesn't she look so happy?
The requisite side photo of the growing belly. She's not sneering at the camera, she was eating chocolate while posing for the photo.
Baby is due two months from today. It seems like only yesterday when she found she was pregnant!

I'm off to work a late shift tonight. We are resetting the notions wall at work. Sounds like a lot of fun.

Sweet P

Cute penny pockets - I know the shower guests will love them. How exciting to have a new baby on the way.

Sounds like a fun shower you have planned *s*

What are the 'taggies' for?

Tasha looks wonderful. Great job on the maternity top. Looking forward to the shower.

Glad you just got rain. We got 15" of snow. LOL

What are the tags for on the receiving blankets?
