Wow! I thought I was slacking on my family blog but I'm really slacking here! So I have been doing some projects. Don't worry I didn't give up on the world of crafting! This first one is a quilt I did for my SIL for christmas. She loves giraffes so I wanted to make a quilt with giraffes for her.

I went online and googled giraffes and found a couple of pix of an African sunrise with giraffes in the pic but they were silouettes. I thought that would make an awesome quilt that Bailey would like and nobody on earth would have one like it! So I set to drawing it out transfering to graph paper and making a pattern. I found the fabric I wanted to use, put it all together and came out with my first ever everything! :o) It was the first quilt I've actually completed and had quilted. First time binding a quilt. It was a first for designing the quilt. It was also the first (of many) that I planned to give away.

So here it is! The Front and than the back.

I must say I was quite proud! I do need help with binding but I found an article today that I think helped me figure out what I was doing wrong... We'll see with the next blanket that I do...I'm doing another bb blanket for a bb shower that I have in a wk...I still have to start. :o) Here is the other bb blanket I did for a shower I went to at the beginning of the month.

Oh and the little booties that I made to go along with it! Sorry if the pix are poor quality I took them on my phone and emailed them to myself so I could get them posted.
