More baby gifts and other winter fun

A few recent baby gifts.
I’ve been on a burp-cloth making kick lately.
A good scrap buster and a cute gift.
Next week I’ll share my favorite quick method for making these handy gifts.
Also included with this one is a handmade taggie-like blanket backed with minkie.
I won’t be sharing how I made that because I don’t want the creators to sue me.
(But they’re super easy.)
This set included a nursing cover.
Also a quick, handy gift for a new mom.
(But I’m always a little worried about giving
it unless I’m sure they’re nursing.
I don’t want anyone to think I’m a lactivist.
But me, I was a nurser so I love those things.)
And just in case you were in the mood for some winter scenery,
here are a couple of shots from a recent venture up the
near-by canyon that was last seen in it’s fall splendor here.
We got in a little sledding, a little snow-ball throwing, and a lot of good, clean air. And fun.

Many thanks again for your kind words and thoughts on the Ireland quilt and it’s recipients.
You are all so kind.

    cute baby gifts. that taggie website seems to be up in arms about people making homemade versions. i once saw a pattern for something similar in &quot;simple sewing for baby&quot;.

    Nothing wrong with being a lactivist – wish there were more so that more women had the support necessary to increase breastfeeding rates!<br /><br />Oh, and super-cute burp cloths and blankies. Love that buses fabric. I scored a little jumper at a thrift store for my daughter that used the blue colourway of that fabric. The jumper&#39;s now too small for her and I&#39;m trying to decide if I

    That orange and white print fabric is delicious. It has me in a snit, it is that amazing gorgeous. Fresh. Ahhhh.<br /><br />&quot;Lactivist&quot; — just that word makes me smile (yeah, I nursed my kids pretty hard core, too, back in the day).<br /><br />And thanks for the mountain scenery pics. Looks like fun. We haven&#39;t snowmobiled or skiied yet this winter yet but hope to do our
