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!

My new best friend –

or… at lease best purchase.

This is, by far, the best iron I have ever owned!!!

Even though it does have an automatic shutoff, it is really just a ‘Classic’. Very comfortable, nice and heavy, but not too heavy. No retractable cord and I have not once had a problem filling it!

Ahhh! The little things in life…so simple, so much happiness!
