Making Stuff for Babies

I've been seeing cute banners all over blogland and so has my friend Diane.  She had a baby shower at her house tonight and asked me to make a banner with the baby's name on it for the shower.  It's always fun when you have an excuse to make something!  I considered making it out of fabric.  But paper was much quicker and easier this week.  So paper won out. 


It was a hit and Mom said she's going to hang it in the baby's room.  So the banner will have a permanent home!

For her gift I made up three of those patchwork balls.  But I forgot to take a picture!  You'll have to use your imagination.  One matched the colors in the banner.

I haven't gotten as far as I had hoped on my sailboat quilt this week.  But here are three of the 9 sailboats that I need to make:


As long as babies are being born around me, there will always be an excuse to make a quilt or some other fun project!

Your banner was the hit of the party! Thanks for all your help. It turned out to be a fun evening.

Ok, I'm just saying, those baby shower invites need to pass ward boundaries. Ha! The banner is cute, and I'm sure Lynn loved the balls!
