Baby Blankets

Oh my.  So you know I have to make a baby blanket for my cousin.  Well, I found out this weekend that one of Richard's cousins is also pregnant.  With twins.  Um..... yay!(?)  Now I have to make three quilts!  Lord help me get them done!

For the twins' quilt I think that I'm going to make two stacked coins quilts.  Or maybe this rainy days quilt.  Or even possibly this charm quilt.  I really, really, really like life in the jungle and it is gender neutral so it would be perfect to make ahead.  I'd really like to make it out of precuts since it is just so much easier, so the rainy days quilt has a disadvantage there.  We will see :)

So I've been trying out a lot of new recipes lately since I've discovered greek yogurt, wheat germ and milled flax. They are very interesting, versatile, and healthy!  One that I thought was interesting was a strawberry greek yogurt banana bread.  Well, I technically made muffins and substituted in 1/4 c flax and 1/4 c whole wheat flour for 1/2 c AP flour.  And you know what?  Two of them are only 120 calories!  Man.  My mind was blown because muffins are taboo.  They are better the second day since they have sweetened up for some reason.  Next time I'm going to chop up the strawberries really small because they kind of leave spots mushy in the bread.  See how pretty they are?


Now I'm off to body boot camp with my nicely strapped in fitness mat!  I hope you have all had a lovely week!

  1. Would love that recipe! Looks yummy. I have some Noah panels, 2 actually and all the coordinating fabrics you could use for the twins. It's listed on ETSY or on my blog if you want to take a look at it. If you want e to bring it I can do that on Wed.


Your comments make my day!
