More Baby Bedding

I am 29 weeks pregnant today.

Here is the crib. (You can see Dexter peeking out from underneath):

I finished the bed skirt yesterday. It was more difficult than I expected primarily due to three things.
1. The kitties still like to eat patterns and Dexter now fancies pins and steals them out of my seams.
2. I am 7 months pregnant, so therefore, most positions are not very comfortable to me including the positions required to hunch over a sewing machine. My back was killing me not to long into the project.
3. The gathered seams. I was supposed to gather the material at the top, but after much fuss and frustration and many snapped threads, I decided I like it without a gathered seam just fine, thank you very much.

Here is the bed skirt up close. :

And here is KNITTING!!! My (in progress) log cabin style baby blanket inspired by Mason Dixon Knitting. It won't be getting much larger than this (~2 feet x ~2 feet) as I am running out of yarn. I will have enough to do a narrow red border around the outside. The blanket is made with Dale of Norway 100% superwash (and supersoft) wool, Baby Ull, 2 strands held together on size 6 needles:

I hope the baby likes it as much as Portia seems to:
