I finally stitched down the binding of this cute baby quilt about a week ago, I'm pretty happy with it as it was my first experience using a long arm machine in the quilt shop, so much easier than on my home machine. Although, I'm finding that I do like hand stitching and may plan a hand stitched quilt for sitting in these last few weeks of pregnancy :). I'm calling it Prince tiles, the designer named the print frog prince, and I made a simple tile design with fussy cut centers (that just means I cut out the frogs :))
Here she is for my little one!
And back with a soft flannel for snuggling little baby B!
I am now 36 weeks, and can't believe that pregnancy is almost over. I think the question that everyone asks me now is are you ready???
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:
a pillow and wall hanging received from kerriofberries from the Modernista Homemade swap!
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)
