Baby on the way !

I'm going to be a grandma !!! How great is that !! My daughter is pregnant from a baby boy. Parents and grandparents are over the moon!! 
Of course I started sewing and knitting immediately. Yesterday I made these burp cloths.  

Looked in my stash for nice children's fabric. The backside is from flannel, soft and it doesn't slide.

About a year ago an old-fashioned shop in Sparta closed after being there for a 100 years or so. It used to sell clothes, fabric, sheets, towels, baby stuff and I don't know what more. For the last 20 years they only sold clothes; I didn't even know they had fabric!! At the closing sale I bought a lot, and I mean a lot of this blue cowboy and pink gardening vintage flannel. I bought all they got! Before I knew that my daughter was pregnant I already made this swaddle nappy/blanket.

This baby bag was also an earlier project. I took it to Athens last week, filled with the swaddle blanket and a thin white cotton blanket that I knitted. I don't have a picture of the blanket yet, because my camera broke down just when I finished that. But.... I bought myself a new camera, kind of a birthday present. Next time I am in Athens I can show you the blanket.

Well, I have a lot of other baby project planned: sleeping bag, quilt, wall hanging, stuffed animals, etc, etc. !! I'd better start working now !!!!
