Baby Eli

I wanted to post these pictures of the sewing I did for Eli & Leah a few weeks ago. But I was waiting until I could deliver them, well they are delivered. I hope they love them as much as I did making them! The material for these is all from my stash and loaded with memories! Adam has been a Peanuts fan for years and quite a long time ago I made him a large quilt from these very prints. Last fall I came across Baby Linus in a bin while searching for something else,I rescued him and brought him downstairs, gave him a good wash and decided to make a doll quilt for him and give them as a gift to Leah when her new brother came. Baby Linus is just about 23 years old! I used this pattern from Sew, Mama,Sew for the doll quilt. It was a lot of fun and I still had a ton of the Peanuts fabric left over so I cut lots of squares and made a baby quilt for Eli to match Leah's doll quilt.
The appliqued onesies were fun and quick. The only challenge was making the appliques small enough!

Good morning Sister,

This may be the first blog I've ever read. Unfortunately I don't have the time to really read all of it, BUT I did look through it all and read some.

Made me miss hanging with you like we did when our kids were young. :.(

Can't wait for Easter. Sorry I won't be coming Sat. for Anna's concert.

Congratulations with your new grandson. Can't get over how much he reminds me of Adam as a baby.

Have a great day!
