{two weeks}

... and even more in love every day!

Thursday, April 21, 2011


Inspired by this quilt by Film in the Fridge, I made my own 'plus sign' quilt two weeks before I was due. With my mom's quilt shop being involved in a Shop Hop this month, it's was a benefit for her too, since I will let it hang in her shop for a while before Little Mister is a little bigger.

I am not usually drawn to these colors, but I am so in love with how it turned out! I used seven fabrics - 2 prints and 5 solids. I cut 1/2 yard of each, and used 4 1/2" squares to construct it. Super easy! With a walking foot I did diagonal straight line quilting and it was done in no time. Seriously, in under 24 hours.

little mister

I finally 'finished up' the major project I have been working on for the last 9 months... our "little mister" as the girls call him. We are so in love!

He was 8 lbs 3 oz and 19" long - smaller than either of my girls. I forget how slow and painful recovery from a c-section can be, so we are just taking things easy for a couple weeks and just enjoying as much cuddle time as possible.

what i wore wednesday {39 weeks}

I am now 39 weeks pregnant... and totally feeling it. Tomorrow this little dude is here! Since I work right up until I have my babies, I have been wearing scrubs to work for the last couple days (okay... yoga pants & t-shirts all morning as I spit-shine my house too, but I'll spare you the picture).
However... What I would love to be wearing is some combination of these clothes:
To accessorize... why not a great bag and a necklace that gives to a charity?
{Necklace, Bag}

Tomorrow, however my attire will look more like this:

with these wonderful accessories
{iv line, compression stockings and breast pads}

I have been the lucky winner of TWO giveaways lately! Sometimes I think 'why bother...' but I guess it's paying off! First I won this great necklace from Barberry and Lace on Craftiness is not Optional. I love it. Such a cute little charm! I have my eye on several other pieces in her etsy shop too.
Then last week I got a note that I also won a huge stash of Buddy Fruit from Funny Days with Mommy and Maddie! My kids are not fantastic about eating fruit, so I am hoping that these will peak their interest a little. If not, I am more than happy to gobble them up!

Moo has been begging for me to sew her something, so I pulled out my new Lil Blue Boo pattern again and made her a new skirt. I am totally in love with it! She was so excited to finally go do a photo shoot of just her... but was uninterested in looking at the camera.
Cute little kid was just too busy twirling.

for baby brother

I am so excited I have this quilt top done for baby brother! I did all-over stippling and bound it in a yellow polka dot. I can't help myself. I am sure by now you know where Bug's polka dot obsession comes from!

I am so in love with all the great Heather Ross prints!
