Fleece Winnie the Pooh blanket for "Baby Mac"

I get lots of help in my quilting studio. Conway Twitty the Kitty has taken over his brother's spot on top of my rolling carrier for my sewing machine. I finally gave up chasing them off and covered it with a towel to keep it clean. Don't know why they like it but they both do...a lot

Then there is Clarise. Her invisible fence collar is almost as big as she is. Right now she is sleeping on the cat stracching post with a seat on it. The cats don't use it so she does. I think it's a territory thing with them.

Here is the fleece Winnie the Pooh blanket. My DIL asked for a fleece blanket that could be used in the baby car seat. I took a 60 x 108 inch piece and cut it in 2 lengthwise. This is not a conventional size but will be extra long to double up or put under and over the little one. Since there are so many fun colors in this blanket I used a rainbow colored binding on it. It just makes me smile.

As you probably saw on the baby due date count down meter at the top of my sidebar "Baby Mac" is due in just 7 days. (But who is counting?) The kids have picked out Irish names but I'm not letting the cat out of the bag yet as to what they are. So until the baby gets an official moniker it will be "Baby Mac" When I spoke to my son it was so fun to hear him talk about the baby is starting to drop and other OB terms, like he's a pro at this. Well they both will be shortly.
I bought my plane tickets last night so I'm already to
go. Can't wait to get my hands on the new one and the twins. The cousins will live about 11 miles apart while we are a 12 hour drive away. I can see how I will be racking up those frequent flyer miles in the future.
