Sweet Baby Treats and a Pincushion

I have finished a couple of projects the last couple of days.  First I finished the pincushion I made for the Scrappy Pincushion Swap on Flickr and I really love the way it turned out.  It was purely from scratch and from inspiration I got form stalking my swap partner. 
This was so fun to make.  I have never done anything like this before, but I am hooked. I loved making this pincushion and the pintoppers to go with it.  My first attempt at making pintoppers and working with Sculpey clay.  I will do lots more of this.

I am going to a baby shower for a baby boy and decided to make gifts.  The onesie, shoes and burp cloth were also fun to make and embelish.  They came together easily and I like the way they turned out.  I may make a diaper holder or something else to put with it, or just add a package of diapers or wipes.  Here they are:

I LOVE TO SEW!!!

Happy Quilting ;),
