More baby quilts and no babies

I'm not sure why I feel compelled to continue to sew baby quilts. I guess I like the size and MAN, all the cute fabrics and color combos! I tell myself it's great to have some on hand to gift when the occasion arises. Yeah, let's go with that...

Sorry for the yucky pictures. A new camera is still on my wish list....

I've still been busy sewing, sewing, sewing for my upcoming craft show NEXT weekend! If my mom and sis weren't helping me out, I think I'd be having a nervous breakdown right about now. I've done a few shows with my handmade soaps and stuff, but this is my first show that I've sewn for. It's SO hard to know what people might buy and how to price it. I have given myself a deadline of next Tuesday and whatever hasn't been completed by then is not going to be done this year. That will give me time to wrap, label and just enjoy the holiday weekend.
I wish I had a picture to post of some of the goodies, but they'll be coming soon :)

In the meantime, check out this giveaway!

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am to be a part of an online Quilting Bee! I've been drooling over many other bloggers creations for each other, but I've never been able to take a part. I was mulling over the idea of inviting a few friends to start my own, but when I saw that the Block Party blog started a flickr group, I rushed over and found many Bees starting up. I've had the chance to check out my fellow quilters blogs and flickr sets and I'm even more stoked! I think we have an excellent group!
I spent a little (too much) time on flickr this morning whilst the little guy watched Little Einsteins and created this mosaic of recent faves :)
