in BABY mode .. yay!!

… grandbaby that is. Not only is daughter #2 expecting with our 1st grandbaby but we found out the other day that daughter #1 is expecting with our 2nd grandbaby. Yeah, a little bit of a shock but we are sooo very excited.
So you know I’ve had an eagle eye lately for anything baby related. Here are a couple of tutorials I have found and cant wait to try out. Not to mention I think I will be doing a makeover on the cradle that not only my 3 babies slept in when they were little but so did some nieces/nephews. I’ve held onto this thing for 22 years waiting for the day to drag it out again for grandbabies. Amazingly it has held up very well.. until I broke one of the legs on it the other day.. oh well break out the gorilla glue.. it’ll be alright! 

On to the tutorials..
A super simple way to sew up some burp cloths in no time at all  and Sarah shows you exactly how to do it over at  A little of this A little of that 

And how about some of the cutest little baby shoes.. I can just imagine these in all sorts of colors and patterns.   Ready to try these out soon.   Grey Luster Girl made these adorable shoes using the tutorial found on Star Dust Shoes site..   And look at the flower that she added.. that is just too cute

And last take a look at these awesome bibs.. or is it an apron,, no it’s a bapron.. pretty cool huh?
And Jess tells you exactly how to make them and it looks so easy.  Cant wait to sew some of these.  And if you hop over to her site you can see the prettiest little model wearing one of these.  So cute. 

Off to a family reunion this weekend and soo looking forward to just a couple days away. I dont want to do anything at all.  Except maybe fish with Tyler ,, if he'll let me.. ha ha. 

Stay tuned for more baby and wedding projects as well as a makeover on the cradle.  

Have a great Mothers Day Weekend everyone
