The only thing I can do is crochet, so I do plan to make some hats and booties in green. I would also love to make a bunting or sack or sweater~we'll see! I have some yarn I think would make a great round blanket. I'm sure some of you sew and quilt and knit~what do you have planned?

i dont knit, crochet, or sew..or anything like that..but i fully support the etsy'ers who do

i consider the nursery my craft...i usually put quite a bit of time in to it (60 in to brylie's, about 45 in to hunters...thats hours, not minutes)

I crochet and sew. Just need to get myself motivated. I'm just so lazy lately.

I crochet, knit, sew, scrapbook, and do hand embroidery and some cross stitch. I am sure I will make this one at least a hat and mittens before December I will wait until I find out gender though.

I have sort of taught myself to sew. Also I like those muslin blankets but I like to dye my own and add stuff. So I'll make a few of those, and probably some clothes. I've got to get on sewing some shorts for my son, haven't quite worked up the energy and concentration yet.

I did a lot of crafting for DD1 and I feel AWFUL that I never got around to doing it for DD2, so now I'm torn about busting my behind to do it for both or just forgetting it for both of them. I'll probably end up doing the first. My 2nd girl so got the short end of the stick since her pregnancy was unplanned and so close to DD1. I was JUST getting adjusted to having a baby in the house and SURPRISE!!!

I have several projects that I've never finished, so I suppose it would be good to start there and then figure out what I'm doing for baby 3

My problem is I have other projects already going~stuff for our homeschool booths through the summer, and an afghan for my brother who's getting married in December. WOW I hope this will really happen~LOL! I've put it down for a looong time....

I wish I were good with decorating! But nah, I don't got it. I desperately need to paint many rooms before baby comes. :/

My mom is the crafty lady in the family so she and her knitting friends make all sorts of things for my babies. One of her lady friends made me the coolest bibs for DD out of a towel. It has little sleeves and covers her whole upper body. That's the one we use for spaghetti dinner or something similarly messy. I have tons of girly crocheted and knitted blankets and hats so if this LO is a boy, mom will have to get crafting again.

If I have a boy, I'll most likely make the bedding. I'll make the name to put on the nursery wall and a few new baby quilts. If its a girl I crochet some little sandals and make hair bows. My mom will be crocheting the blessing outfit and making an afghan.

I got some Cranberry colored yarn to crochet some booties. (I am still a beginner) Also plan to do some paintings for the baby's room. I got some cute fabric for my friend to make a slipcover for Gavin's old bedding...figured it would be cheaper than buying a whole new set.

dear LORD brit! That looks awesome! and pain-staking....

As far as crafting, I am planning on making crochet blankets and hats (i'm little more than a novice) and I have already completed my cloth wipe stash (I think I made 75-80 of them). I also wanna do some collages with magazine cut outs for pictures (I decided not to paint baby's room....we can do that when s/he is older). I've got a sewing machine and the sky's the limit!!!!

I think you are too kind. Kind people give the people around them a hard time. You can't express yourself honestly, because you are worried about hurting other people's feelings, and that makes you miserable.~"Winter Sonata"

I can crochet but only flat things. Haha

I made my daughter a blanket that I finished when I was pregnant with the boy. Then I started a blanket for the boy that I hope to finish up here soon. This baby might have it's own blanket someday. Haha I am sure I will start one.
