Procrastination Quilt

I made this quilt for a dear friend who is having a baby boy any day now. I was supposed to be using my child free time to write a 4000 word essay but the lure of my sewing room was too great. Thank goodness the semester is over now so I can sew guilt free and start thinking about having a baby of my own in 3 ish weeks. I am currently in panic mode as we've done nothing to prepare and, as my midwife quite rightly pointed out at my last appointment, the baby really could arrive any day now. The other two were late but you never know. Thankfully I've still got plenty of energy which is enabling me to 'nest' at warp speed.

I also made these door snakes to keep out the winter chill. They were easy to make - just long tubes of fabric filled with lentils and sewed closed at the end.

I was making good progress on the crochet baby blanket but realised it was slowly morphing into a trapezoid shape as I obviously wasn't starting a new row in the right spot. I seriously considered ditching the project altogether but faced it again last night after a few weeks break. I had to unravel about 2/3 of it. Argh! Now I have to do about 3 rows a day if I'm going to finish it in time!
