    I almost sent these without taking a picture to show you all! Duhh .. LOL! These are for my niece who lives in Mesa, Az. She is due in august. My favorite of all my neices and nephews (Shh... don't tell) Ok here is the descriptions....

    I made this dragger quilt from some of the very first blocks I ever made many years ago. They were ufo's sitting around doing nothing, so why not? The backing I had to buy.

    The 4 little burb cloths were a set of muslin towels someone made and I found in a thrift shop. I made the little strips for the bottoms from scraps I had from previous projects and backed them with white flannel.

    The tiny drooling bibs I did embroider and the kitten bib I made from a fat quarter I had and some terry I bought for the towel set I made her. The yellow towel I also "found" with the swedish weaving already finished on it in the lavender, so I added the childs strip of fabric with the tiny piping on each end to give it some style.

    The little blue gown is made from a pattern that I bought and made gowns for my kids when they were newborns. Trust me that was some time ago. I am a grandma!
    So here are the sharing pics ...P.S.) I made other things in the box too. and my friend sent her a white crocheted blanket that is in there too!

    What a great box of gifts to send her. They are so cute. My kids had bibs like your cross stitched ones. My mom made them. She is going to be so tickled. Thanks for sharing.

    What a treasure trove of gifts. I like your term 'a dragger quilt'.

    I think the baby may have replaced the neice as your favorite - at least is running a close second.
    Great work- we all have some blocks that could be used this way. Nice and bright.

    I Sis! I am glad you found time to come see tiffany's things since you won't be there until the baby is born. Big hugs to you and john!

    Thanks so much everyone! I had fun making all these for her. She is a sweet kid like her mom (The last poster here)
    I will get it all in the mail tuesday. Monday being a holiday, I don't hink they will be open to mail.

    I love showing and telling here on the board. There are so many nice comments and compliments.

    You really have put together a wonderful welcoming gift package for the new baby. There is a lot of work in those gifts which makes them particularly special. You do beautiful work. I'll bet you are the "favorite" Aunt. Very generous and very sweet of you :-D
