Babies on the brain, and Happy 4th!

It has been a busy 4th of July weekend, but I am back with some more creations. I was put in charge of our town baby contest, in which every single baby was a winner. They were all so stinkin' cute, how could anyone narrow it down to one? I drummed up a pile of prizes including some my tiny star creations. I think everyone had a fun time. We had a great 4th, filled with the typical days events: parades, games, entertainment, yummy food, and fireworks.

With babies on the brain, I developed this pattern last night.
It is a cute and cuddly baby elephant softie with a rattle inside.


I also got my new tags the other day. I like that they are simple and sweet. Here is a framed print of my Elephant Rider.
I always dreamed of riding my own pet elephant.
One of these prints was a prize at the baby contest.

And finally, my new jackpot. A friend brought me a pile of vintage quilt squares that had belonged to her grandmother. There are some wonderful prints, already sewn together and pressed. I have lots of ideas of what to do with these, but I would love more suggestions.

Maybe an idea for a future giveaway!

Have a lovely week!
