Busy, busy, busy

I've been busy this week. Not only taking care of a newborn, a toddler and a 5 year old, but making stuff for the baby. I love having a girl! One of the things I've been doing is making headbands. I need people to know she's a girl! I made the above one. It's a little big, but she'll grow!
Here are a few I worked on last night. My husband thinks the korker bows look like fireworks. The green and pink one was my first attempt. It's rather large for her tiny head. I will need to wait to attach it to a headband that will fit her head later on.
Here is one I made of tights. I bought the green bow in a package of bows that have alligator clips on the back. I put a loop of grosgrain ribbon around the tights so that I can use the same headband and just switch bows. Can you tell Caleb is a proud brother?And here is a sneak peak of the quilt I'm making for her crib out of Bubblegum Basics. Hopefully I can finish it this week.

She's one lucky little girl who will be treated like a princess. The bows are darling and her quilt is going to be wonderful too!

you must have some hours in your day that I am missing...I know you said that you insist on quiet/nap time, but it still doesn't work out for me. You are truly amazing (and must be so much more efficient than me)!
