Burp Pads and Bibs

I finally finished some of the bibs and burp pads I have been working on. As you can see in the pics, they are reversable. The middle pic has some precious striped material on the back side of it, but when I found that ribbon in my stash, I had to put it on there. The materials I am using for these are scraps from some of my aprons I have made, so it has been pretty economical so far. I cut out a bunch more today, but did not get the chance to sew them up. That will wait for the weekend. I traced the bib pattern from a bib of my best friends grandsons. The burp pad pattern came from I did buy some Halloween material to make some, but I am doing a different style burp pad, and the bib is a little smaller. I will show those another day.
Today is my day off. I had gotten up early, drank my coffee, checked my email, finished painting two crosses I had been working on, got Simon off to school, and started cutting out bib and burb pads from my material stash when the phone rang. It was my daughter. She was going to the doctor today and her hubby just found out he could not go with her, so she asked if I wanted to go. Well, yeah! We went to the doctor appointment at 10. He had to go deliver a baby and was backed up. She did not see him until 11:40. When he raised her shirt to measure her little tummy, he said "Your having a contraction." That is when the day changed. He checked her out and said everything looked good. Sent us to the hospital for lab work, and then to the other clinic for an ultrasound. Told me on the way out the door, if she goes into labor call me. If not I will see ya'll next week! The ultrasound showed the baby looks fine and weighs about 7 lbs, 9 0z. She has turned and is in position. Due date has been the 7th of October which puts her at 36 weeks and 1 day. Ultrasound says she is at 37 weeks and 4 days. You know those things can be off a week real easy. Now we wait. All my babies came early and my labor was fast. I hope the same for her. Please keep them in your prayers. She is a bridesmaid this weekend and if we can just get through this, it will be down hill from here. Her older brother is a groomsman in the wedding and they have put him as her escort and put them on the end, so if anything happens they can get out the side door quick.
Enough rambling. I am really tired. My dogs went crazy this morning at 1:45 and I was up for a couple of hours with that. One of my dogs never barks unless there is someone outside and that is what I heard this morning. I got up and looked out and sure knuff, this dude is walking down the road in front of my house. I started to call the police, but I decided not to because the local McDonalds is not real far from where I live and he looked like he had a McDonalds suit on. It is open 24/7 so I thought he might be walking to work. No, I am not blond, but I swear I am nieve at times. Well anyway, found out today that my neighbor 4 houses down had her car stolen last night out of her driveway and the one on the other side of her had her car broken into. Ok, my husband is out of town and I really heard it about this, so I will call the police the next time my dog does that bark and I see someone!! Ya'll have a good night. Be safe, happy, and healthy. Hug those you love. Smile and laugh. Please remember our soldiers and there families in your prayers. God bless ya'll!!!!


  1. Those bibs are so cute! I love the bright fabrics. If I had kids, I'd definitely have them wearing bibs like that.

  2. I'm sure your daughter will be well stocked with bibs...they are so cheerful and cute...
    Good that you have barking dogs!!!
