Baby Blankets

I haven't really been doing a whole lot recently hence the lack of posting. The things I have been doing are things like seeing movies and working out, which don't really lend well to exciting posts. I have also finally finished some baby blankets I have been making. I have a few friends who are having babies and I got a sewing machine for Christmas so I decided to make rag quilts. They involve cutting lots of squares, then sewing X's on said squares and the sewing the squares together. It is time consuming but I think they turned out really well so I guess they are worth it! Here are two of the ones I have made.

I gave the pink and purple (if you can tell the colors) one to my old roommate Kasey who is pregnant with baby girl #2. I'm mad at myself for not taking pictures at her baby shower because it was so adorable. It was a tea party and the host went all out with tables set with her grandmother's china and twinkle lights for decoration. It was fun to get to see Kasey and celebrate her new little bundle of joy.
I also made a blue and yellow blanket for Karleigh's friend. Kars put the finishing touches on it so I will have to post pictures when I get them from her. Then I have one more girl one to do then I have a break for at least a little bit!

They are SO cute! I'm glad you posted these, cuz it was hard to see what it looked like at Kasey's shower. And I loved seeing you on Saturday, let's do it again soon.

You did a great job! They turned out so cute. One of these days you'll have to teach me how to use my machine :) Can't wait to see you in a month!
