Googly Snowmen

What were you doing on the third day of spring this year? I was making Christmas ornaments. It was snowing and I was inspired, though not because of the snow. But hey, I make Christmas ornaments in the summer too, so March is just a particularly early start.

I was inspired to use up the wooden discs I had left over from my yo-yo pumpkins, and I also had a lot of googly eyes. At first I wasn't sure about the googly eyes, but I really like them! The wood discs are only 1" in diameter, so they are very tiny snowmen.

Grandpas's Scare Crows

I've previously featured the Christmas ornaments that Zack's grandpa has made for us, so I thought I'd feature these little scarecrows he sent us. They are both made out of jars. You can unscrew the hat on the smaller one. The smaller one is about 6" tall and the larger one is about 10" tall.

Baby Elephant Quilt

This is the most babyish out of all the baby quilts I have made, especially for a boy. I think the dinosaurs and both sharks will age fairly well, but this one, probably not so much. (It's going to the little brother of the boy who received the first shark quilt.) Nonetheless, it's one of my favorite quilts. I like the cute little elephants, I like the color scheme, I like the quilting.

I actually like the quilting so much that now I really want to make a zig zag quilt.

See, aren't the elephants adorable?

New items purchased to complete this quilt: everything except the batting, and the orange fabric which was leftover from shark quilt #2

Finished size: 35" x 49"

Airplane Baby Blanket

I bought this remnant of airplane flannel a couple years ago, because I knew it would be perfect for when my sister had a baby, and now she is! I was excited to finally get to use it. I ran right out and got some orange flannel for the back. She likes orange, and it will be one of the nursery colors.

Finished size: 31" x 39"
