Ruffled-Edged Burp Cloths and a baby boy...


A few days ago I posed a question... I asked if anyone would care to venture a guess as to what the third baby item might be that I've made for our little collection of pieces to be given a new mother and her baby.

You might remember that the first item in our little ensemble was the Ruffled Bib...


The second item was Maggie the Taggie Owl...


And many of you guessed correctly when you thought the third item was a Ruffled-Edged Burp Cloth...


I will be posting the very simple pattern and super quick instructions on how to make this Ruffled-Edged Burp Cloth soon.

I want to thank those who have left comments and sent such kind emails lately in regard to the bib and tag blankie patterns and tutorials. I've had family here this last week and haven't had time to respond as I should to each email or comment, but I'd like you to know that I appreciate your kind words and encouragement. I've received over 500 requests for those patterns!  

For those who left your email address in a comment to request the patterns, instead please follow the instructions given and send me an email (my email address is on my sidebar under "contact information") with the request. I just haven't had the time to complete the requests from the comments, and it's much easier for me to respond to an email rather than cut and paste email addresses from comments given. Thank you so much!

This morning my little grandson was outside with me as I was taking photos of the Ruffled Burp Cloth in anticipation of the tutorial that will be published in a few days. It was a slightly cooler morning, the sprinklers were going full bore, and I could hear my grandson's giggles and chatter as I was shooting photos nearby. His laughter caused me to take a peak at him and this is what I found...


This boy loves water! He was standing right in front of the sprinklers having a grand ol' time!


This is the reason I've been preoccupied lately. I wouldn't want to miss a single moment...


Wishing you a cool and relaxing day!

Oh my gosh! He's just adorable. So fun and yes! Take every second possible to spend with him. They grow so quickly.

We have a very crowded house right now because my son, fiancee and our Granddaughter just moved in but I have to admit I'm thrilled that I get to see my Granddaughter every day and she's just 5 months old when they start doing so many cute things.

I can't wait to see the burp cloth now too. It's adorable with the ruffles.
