Playing Catch Up

It's funny how time off flies by. Chris and I spent some great time together, and he's actually on his way back to Maryland now for his monthly drill. He'll be back Monday afternoon, so I'll be doing some fun activities while he's gone with my mom.
In the meantime, I'm trying to play blog catch up. Before Chris came home, his older sister Jennifer had her first child. His name is Richard Jackson and will go by Jack. He was 10 days late, and they finally had to induce her, because he was in no hurry to enter the world. Chris was able to spend a few days on his cross country drive with them in Houston and see Baby Jack. As a gift, I "made" burp cloths out of cloth diapers. Now I saw "made" in parentheses, because I'll admit I did none of the actual sewing. I did pick the fabrics and borders, but my wonderfully talented mother did all of the sewing. Here's a few photos of the finished project. Jennifer and her husband chose not to know the sex of the baby beforehand, so we were working with a gender neutral palette. And she loves penguins, so I always try to include something that has penguins.

Here's the six that we made.

A closer view of the six.

A close up of my mom's handy work. Adorable.

Sorry for the bad photos. I was putting them in the box at that very moment and was trying to beat the mail deadline for the day!
