Sneak Peak revealed..

Friday morning found DH and I off on a quick trip to look at some land. We are in the midst of finding somewhere to retire and he wants some elbow room and I want to be closer to the grandkids. I think we might have found the perfect place. We will wait and see.

After coming home and getting some housekeeping duties out of the way, I ran upstairs and started to finish the sneak peak project. I finished it....

This is the inside..complete with zipper and pocket....



The outside with pocket and covered button...



And the finished diaper bag with matching quilt ...



I made these for my niece who is due in June with a boy... Fingers crossed, I hope she likes them.

I am off to Paducah next week for a couple of days and we will have a guest blogger, so be on the look out...

Happy Sewing,
Nancy

Oh how could she not love the quilt and bag?! Lucky girl is what she is. I really love the orange. I'm waiting to find out if DD is having a girl or boy and either way I'm thinking orange is going to have to be in a quilt.

Now who wouldn't like that. So cute and I love the colors. I've been working on my baby quilt for our little grand baby. Gotta hurry.
Keep Stitchen and have fun,
