Lots of wee ones coming these past few weeks and I have been busy with needles of all kinds getting ready for their arrival! I love making baby snugglies for lots of reasons, but the main ones are that it is a terrific way to surround them with lots of love and, frankly, because they are so much faster than a baby to make!

Here are just a few of the things I have created this month...

A jelly roll quilt..

Redwork pillows

Cabled knit baby blanket

Baby surprise jacket

Easy peasy baby hat

Crochet baby blanket
Two more baby sweaters and a baby blanket were finished, as well, but I neglected to take a picture before they went to their respective owners.... so frustrating to forget that, isn't it??

We had quite a bit of snow last week which gave me a few days of making. It was quite delicious to snuggle up with fiber, cats, and tea and just watch the snow as I puttered away. I do think retirement will be easy for me -- when that time comes!

Are you creating a lot these days? How are you spending these icy cold days?


  1. You did a great job on everything, Matty! No news on the baby yet? I need to get to work on my February mittens.


  2. wow you have been busy & they are all beautiful!
    it's too hot here yet to get into blanket making but hopefully soon
    thanx for sharing

  3. What a lot of lovely cosy makes, and oh what a gorgeous yellow!! Babies will be warm and cosy for sure. I have had to take a break i making as an old neck injury from a car accident years back is playing up. My own fault to some extent as I have overdone sewing and knitting lately. Bored out of my wits in the evenings, so I have been reading instead :). My sewing is "patiently" waiting in the basket for now. Pam in Norway

  4. I like your jelly roll quilt and your Redwork - two of my favorite things. I've been cozying-up this quiet winter with quilting. It's fun seeing yours.

  5. Dear Matty,

    My goodness, you have been busy! Everyone should treasure your gifts for many years to come.

    Thank you for all the inspiration that you give to me.




Thanks for dropping in on the farm today! I enjoy your comments!
