Since my sister is adopting, I loaded her up with lots of baby stuff:
From Left to Right: Receiving blankets, Taggie Blanket, Burp Cloths and Hooded Towels.
For my mom, Rob's mom and Rob's sister, I made aprons:
Right before Christmas, I also made a set of hooded towels for a sweet friend in NM who just had her second baby:
Then, pretty much as soon as Christmas was over, I started on working on a cake for a baby shower. This cake decorating thing is a VERY new hobby for me.

I also made her a set of hooded towels:

Which means I can honestly say I'm enjoying the time While We Wait.
