Making presents

I had finished the pink zig zag quilt (see earlier post) for my friend having her bub, and had a night to spare- someone at work told me her favourite colour was red, so I made these too. Don't know if I overdid it with the ruffle around the leg AND the back ruffle, but my new motto is 'their can never be too many ruffles on a baby's bottom" so they will be fine. The front view is pretty nice too, I thought.
I thought I would try and make her a baby gown like this http://thismamamakesstuff.blogspot.com/2008/08/tutorial-t-shirt-to-newborn-gown.html. I like giving things that no one else has (der, why else would it be hand made, I ask myself), but also something a bit funky. She thinks she's having a girl (I hope she does after the girly goodies
I have made), she could swap it all for boys stuff, I wouldn't mind.
Big grown up daughter is having her first sleepover here at our house tonight, her 2 little boy mates, nearly 5 and nearly 3. They are all engrossed in "Go Diego Go" at the moment and being absolutely no trouble. They've had dessert and I'm off to make the beds up. I feel very domestic having extra kids in the house, and want to spoil them all rotten! Pancakes for breakfast....http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Good-Old-Fashioned-Pancakes/Detail.aspx Not for the dieters! Best pancakes ever.

Those pants are completely gorgeous!!! And I agree on the ruffles thing - you can never have too many on a baby's bum. I am such a sucker for ruffles :P
Good luck with the sleep over tonight. You're a brave woman!!!
