    I only make homemade gifts for those I KNOW will appreciate them. If I get an invite for anything from someone I don't see regularly I respectfully decline.

    Probably so you could buy the correct color..?? sounds very rude to me that she told you so close to the date of the baby shower.. like she does not appreciate your sewing efforts.. give her 3 blue wash clothes and a pair of booties..

    Invitation was mailed 3 weeks ago.
    I only check mail when VA sends my medicine.
    My fault.
    Just got to put backing on one I made for different great nephew.
    He doesn't like animals, but he loves sports, so working on twin size for him.
    Give his baby quilt to new great nephew.
    Still short 2 girl baby quilts, but using Spring and Summer Swap blocks for them.
    Then will embroidery birth announcements for 4 that am behind on.
    2 boys, 2 girls.
    But will make up 6 extra just in case.
    Found will be great aunt again in September too.
    March- unknown
    April- Boy
    September- unknown.

    Making some ahead is a good idea. I think I will do that as well. I have 3 throw sized tops and backs I just need to finish up. Right now I am working on a commissioned quilt using baby clothes.
