Baby Gift Finished!

I managed to finish another baby gift yesterday morning but I had to leave to drive down to Seattle before I could post about it and I didn't get home until late last night. But I do have pictures to show you.

One of my daughters has a friend who is expecting her first baby any time now and I made her a receiving blanket and burp cloth set.



The baby's father is an avid hunter and we wanted to make the gift a little extra special for him. So we happened across these two camouflage like prints and thought they were perfect.




Then I located this design in a set I had purchased from OESD and I thought the camouflage diaper and helmet was perfect for the burp cloth. I then decided to make some bias binding using some flannel with a camouflage print.




Perhaps not exactly a baby theme, but I think it's adorable. Don't you?

Yesterday as I walked into my sewing studio to begin sewing, I noticed the trees outside had a reddish tint to them and as I walked outside I could see the sky was tinted in beautiful sherbet colors so I just had to run and get my camera to share my spectacular sunrise.

















As you can see my home is surrounded by trees. Aren't the colors just amazing? What a beautiful way to start a day. I hope yours is just as magnificent.

It's a very diferent baby gift. Usually we don't go that way! But the important is that it has a special meaning and that is trully priceless!
You are blessed with such a beautiful morning start! I look at your pictures and keep imagining the sound of it!

What a beautiful sunrise! And to make a baby gift to go along with the dad's interests is a great idea. It's a really cute set.

I love the way you considered the parents feelings with their first "bundle of joy"! That should make the whole experience more memorial.
I love the set!
