Centerpiece Gems

I saw this picture and although I'm not actually looking into making a twig centerpiece - it was the rocks/gems in the vase that caught my attention. I was planning on using the same method for a centerpiece, but forgot....I need to remember this as I attempt to create something for our table.- picture from http://meandmyinsanity.blogspot.com/

Nursing Cover

The last few days I have found that I needed to nurse my boy when I have had company over. I was really wishing I had some kind of cover. A blanket just doesn't stay on the way I'd like. So I got online and was determined to find something I could create. Here are a few things that are out there for ideas.

This one is from Peanut Shell:

This one is from Loved Baby:

This one is from Busy Baby Wraps:

This one is from Balboa Sling:

This next one came from this site... http://www.bebeaulait.com/

Fav Finds Off Crazy Mom Quilts

I want to make each and everyone of these projects. How do people create such cute stuff...I'm loving it!

Quilts from Crazy Mom Quilts

I am in LOVE with the quilts on Crazy Mom Quilts. She is amazing in my opinion. I wanted to include so many more pictures, but realized I had already outdone myself with the stash I am posting. So I will have to settle for these. Now...the idea is for me to get started on a quilt of my own. I can only hope mine turns out something similar. :)
