So, yes I am fully immersed in preparing for baby. I found this super easy tutorial for adding some embellishment to burp rags with cloth diapers. Here is the tut I used: http://www.thinkingcloset.com/2013/03/27/burp-cloth-tutorial-for-the-beginner-sewist/
I really didn't need a tutorial, but I did like her idea of cutting a template out of a cereal box. It really sped up the ironing process. If you don't sew, half of sewing is ironing and cutting out! They were really cheap to make as I made them out of scraps of other things I've been sewing for baby B and a cloth diaper. These will really sop up some serious baby goop.

Here she is for my little one!

My question is can you ever be ready for a little one to enter your life? I don't think that I am yet, but I will be when he arrives. I was so happy to have my appointment today because I got a glimpse of my little guy on an unplanned ultrasound. My belly was measuring a little small, so my doctor had me come back in for another one. Praise God everything was just fine and they estimate him to be in the 48th percentile. I always thought I'd have a huge baby because I'm not the smallest woman I know. But, I guess he's just the right size.
Here are some baby projects I have been working on lately:
My Lotta J. Snuggler from her book, it was overall a pretty easy pattern, but I was glad that I found an online tutorial to look at in the process! I can't wait to swaddle up my little guy inside the soft flannel interior.
A quick mitered fleece blanket for baby B. I love that print :)
I can't help to think what he'll be like as a little person and who he will become. This pregnancy has been challenging at times with a surgery in the middle of it all, it really tested my faith and trust that my prayers were heard about the safety of this little one about to come into this world.
I love this verse:1 Samuel 1:27–28
"I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD." (NIV)

Which essentially allowed me to make slip cushions, which is great because they can be taken off and popped in the wash. My brother has three children and I watched all three when they were babies, I know there's a lot of washing going on with a little one. It worked great as directed except for the ottoman. I tried to follow instructions, but I think that I will just rip up the ottoman and make it fit really nicely with a zipper. It looks ok now, but you're not seeing it in person!
I had a great time with this, Brady my dog was hanging with me. There were a few times he knocked down the fan and piles of fabric, but he's generally a great helper! I felt like I was in the zone in the sewing room today or experiencing flow as a psychologist would say. Here's the before picture:

so, I can't believe that this is my first blog post of 2013! Here we are in June, well I haven't really sewn since that time anyways due to a renovation, surgery, and ummmm...a baby in my belly! I'm in full swing now and plan to be making some fun things for baby and other's I did get Sarah's table toppers done, just a couple of table clothes for her wedding and I'm more freed up. I plan to post baby blanche's baby quilt top this weekend :) Here's my mosaic for a new swap of Modernista Homemade!
