Two pounds and some inspiration!

Today’s doctor’s appointment went well – only two pounds gained this time!  Whew!  Of course I complained and said I was ready to deliver and my doctor promptly told me (in front of Mister) that basically, I just need to suck it up and take it easy!  Easy for him to say!  I bet he gets at least 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep at night.  NOT ME!  The wee one has kept me awake with contractions and crazy movement for the last two weeks.  I think I will get more sleep after wee one arrives!  My three hour glucose came back with flying colors (thank goodness) and I have another Specialist appointment Wednesday.  Will have a more recent picture and better knowledge of an estimated arrival time.

On the nursery front the painting has been done and the fabric should be arriving any day.  Tomorrow’s project is to prime and prep the floors.  New floor this weekend – if delivery goes according to plan.  So the nursery is almost finished – except for the sewing and the floor.  It might help if I could make up my mind once in a while! LOL

And for a little inspiration….i have been smitten with Gretchen’s Redwork Dollhouse that she did for a quilt project.  It is absolutely beautiful!  I am so inspired by this…I think that I might have to make one of my very own!  Maybe one of our  house!  What do you think?

What is 46 1/2″?




at 36 weeks!  How crazy is that!?

Things are going well with the pregnancy.  I have been having contractions now for about 2 1/2 weeks – just not productive ones…..  Since my last entry about being preggers, I have only gained 1/2 pound, but almost 3 inches.  How does that work?  I am not complaining though with 27 pounds total gain there will be less to lose after the baby arrives.  That is always a good thing!

We are working hard on the nursery – Goodbye sewing room 🙁  Mister has patched the walls and we are painting this weekend.  I changed my mind on the fabric for the room at the last minute so I have some sewing to do, but all in good time.  The mattress have been ordered, the cribs are here and we are sure to be done by Monday.  Here is the fabric I have chosen and the quilt I will be making…

So since my last entry I have had plenty of time to be off my feet and relax – Mister makes sure of that!  I have had some crafting going on and have plenty of items to add to the shop.  I will be getting to all of that in the next couple of weeks, providing the new wee one cooperates.  I did manage to finish 4 embroidery storyboards.  The patterns were by Aimee Ray.   I have done them in two shades of green and will be stretching them over canvas.  They turned out really cute.  Pictures soon to follow.  I am now turning to diapers!  I have received all the necessary supplies – so next week I will start sewing them up.  I have decided to try the cloth route for several reasons and will update about the decision as time moves on.  I am hoping this will be a good decision all around!

We have had a lot going on…J started school and is doing really well.  He loves his teacher (always a plus) and is adjusting well to the new schedule.  Z is growing like a weed and is almost standing on her own. She hates to sit still!  and as always, Mister is busy working and taking care of all of us!

Take care until next time!
