another set of baby stuff

My little sister's BFF is preggers so she asked me to make some baby stuff. Katie is decorating the nursery with a sports theme in an Americana color scheme. 
So off I went to Joann's, found some colors to match the bedding and made everything I could squeeze out of a few yards of fabric and into a long weekend. 

A quilt, complete with baseball fabric, sweet polka dots and dashing plaid. Oh, and a cute fleece baseball mitt and ball. It's made out of polar fleece and very soft.

The backing is a matching flannel. 

To match the quilt: 
Fabric cubes.

Baby shoes lined with polar fleece (the baby is due in January in Michigan)

Two bibs with terry cloth backing.

A tag-along blankie. Backed with the flannel from the quilt.

And two curved burp cloths to match the bibs. Backed with flannel and absorbent as hell for that slobbering ball of baby. 

Also, I finally finished my Hedgerow socks, and I love them so much! The second sock took me forever to finish, but I'm so glad it's done. I wore them to bed last night because they were so comfy, and boy was I glad I did - it's been getting very chilly here at night! Fall is certainly here, loud and proud, and making me wish I had spent more time at the pool this summer. Alas, here comes the cold weather and with that means I need to start wearing socks again. What's a girl to do when she needs new socks? Knit them, of course. It's a curse.

I'm planning to cast on tomorrow while we travel to Michigan via aircraft. Nic is watching the puppy dog so I have to go pack his overnight bag. Yes, a weekender bag for a dog. And we need to pack for the weekend too. Forecast in Michigan? Colder than here, I'm sure. 

What do you wear to a wedding in October? Oh, that's the reason we're going home. My cousin is getting married and Curt is playing at the ceremony. So we have to look extra spiffy. 
So anyway, what should I wear to a wedding in October?

What a lucky baby! You've been busy! Sorry I can't offer any advice about wedding wear. Have fun!
