Valentine's Day snack mats for my grandbabies

These little snack mats are the same size as my mug rugs, but since my grandbabies don't drink much coffee, I thought I would refer to them as their snack mats instead.
 
 
I love making these useful little mats/rugs.
I have several around my house.
 I actually prefer them verses a tiny little coaster.
 
 
Hugs and kisses Oakleigh and Brantley - Mimi loves you.
 
 Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Do you have a motto?

According to the Webster's dictionary...
 
 Mot-to:
1. a short sentence or phrase chosen as encapsulating the beliefs or ideals guiding an individual, family, or institution:
 
Yep.
I believe that would be mine...
What's yours?
 
Happy Friday everyone!

Carter's gift basket and a new baby

I just found out last night that we are getting a new addition to the family.
My nephew, Mathew, will be a daddy for the first time.
I am so excited!
It seems it wasn't that long ago that I was making things for the bridal shower.
 
Anyhow, that reminded me, I never posted little Carter's baby gift.
Carter is the very newest addition to our family.
Carter is Cole's baby brother and my great nephew.
 
Carter's theme was sports and animals.
 
I got started with this little elephant design.
 
 
I wanted to stitch something to match the elephant I purchased.
 
 
I added a bib...
 
 
a burp cloth...
 
 
 a hooded towel and washcloth...
 
 
and started on the basket liner...
 
 
I added a few extras like powder, shampoo, wash, etc. and this personalized Christmas ornament I found at Michaels.
 
 
Here it is all together.
 
 
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo after it was wrapped and ready to go.
You can see my other wrapped baby baskets here, here, here, here, here and here.
 
Stay tuned...
I have even another baby basket in progress for a friend.

I love making baskets for new babies...
Is it obvious?
