I am in various stages of creating blankets for some of them. Here's one that I made for a friend who had her baby on Easter morning. Her baby room colors are pink, green and brown, so I chose fabrics in those hues for the blanket. It is a cozy flannel on one side and some flannel and cotton strips on the other. I didn't add batting because the flannel is thick enough for a spring baby. I quilted it with simple straight lines and added a little bit of green ric rac and brown binding. I don't remember what it measured but it was generous because I do love a good-sized baby blanket that can double as a nursing cover.
I have another colorful strip quilt that needs to be finished for a friend... whose baby is almost a month old! Yikes, I better get to that! And then I need to come up with something lovely for my cousin's baby who will be born in a month. I'm so excited to finally have a girl baby in the family!
And for the boys... well, they like to crowd into the office chair when I'm online and if I'm on ravelry they request things. Here's something I made for them a while ago to their specifications.

These finger puppets were fun and pretty simple to make. I love the tails on all these critters although you can't really see them in this picture. The pig was requested by Ethan, the cow (who looks like he has measles) by Nathaniel, and the dog by Jude who was most surprised when he saw that he had essentially ordered Clifford.
