My little Ott lite is already out there. It went on the last trip. Karl gave it to me so that I would have better lighting in the trailer. The light above my chair is not good at all. Not even for reading.
I finished up the nap mat. I only have the binding and the label to sew down.
Mom and Dad don't know if this is a girl or boy, so we can't do the label with anything but generic.
I can do everything properly on the crib quilt. I'll leave the label to attach the day he/she is born.
I finally have the fabric selected for that quilt. Took me awhile, but its done. I'm going to use turquoise coloured backgrounds. Just two fabrics, no more. It took me long enough to decide on these, so I'm not thinking about it anymore. Just going to get started on it.
I've also done some burp pads. 4.
and two have flowers.
The blue ones are for Daddy to use and the pink and mauve ones are for Mom. Now before I get long-winded (who me?) I'll give you the link for the burp pads.
They are free from Connecting Threads and I must thank Chris for the link. I made these for my daughter many, many years ago and she loved them. I always make them from flannelette and the softest quilt batting I have in my stash.
I read on Angie's blog and then I read in one of my new books about using Press 'n Seal. I tried it! I love it! I must mention that Angie did a super job on her tutorial and is well worth the time. You have to scroll down a bit to read it.
I'll tell you all about it tomorrow.
