Recent Creativity

Here are a few things I've been able to accomplish in the last 3 months or so. I thought I'd share them before the baby comes, because who knows when I'll make it back to this poor, old blog!

Here are a few more pictures from a post a couple days ago. This is the quilt that was made for the project swap for the quilt guild I belong to. It was so much fun to design this quilt and see it come to completion. I just love how it turned out!

Last night I realized that we didn't have any extra sheets for this adorable antique cradle a friend loaned to us for the baby. I found some plush minky down in my sewing room that I've had for a couple years and within a couple hours I had two extra sheets. (See the artwork in the background? I love the way the kids hang their artwork in random places throughout the house.)

This little sweetie is a mermaid that Lydia picked out of my Wee Wonderfuls book by Hillary Lang. There are some really adorable dolls in this book, but this is the one Lydia picked for her birthday.
Back packs for the kids. The kids picked out the fabrics from my fabric stash. They really seem to enjoy using these for various things. I forget which magazine I found the pattern in, but they were fairly easy to put together.
Below is my first attempt at a rug mug, which is a newer fad among quilters/crafters. The idea is that it is big enough for a mug of coffee and a treat, such as a muffin or scone. This was a fairly quick project that brought a lot of satisfaction. And it went to live with a very special friend. I hope to have a chance to make more of these in the future.

And here is a random picture of me at 40 weeks. Lucas took the picture for me because I think my belly may be gone by tomorrow. My due date is tomorrow, but I think our little one may come sometime tonight. My contractions are pretty regular and pretty intense which is why it took me so long to complete this post and why it may seem a bit disjointed and random :).
I hope to have pictures of little feet and hands to show off tomorrow!

Love this post and Amber's comment made me laugh! I love that God has gifted you with such a special ability to make such pretty crafts. That quilt is amazing! And I've seen that mug rug at that very special friend's house and you did an amazing job on it. While I love your sewing crafts, I'm even more excited to find out whether this sweet babe is a boy or a girl!!! So excited for you! Much love, friend!
