Waiting...

Still waiting on baby here. Guess she's just not ready yet. I feel great, baby is doing great, so we will just wait a bit longer.

To keep my mind busy I've been working on my hexagons I started in April of last year. My mom is visiting so we've been sitting and sewing while watching The Waltons on DVD. I am glad I had some hand projects waiting to go because it is not comfortable to sit at my machine at this point. I've totally fallen in love with these hexagons again. I'm going to make a Grandmother's Flower Garden, something that has been on my "list" since I started quilting.

I pulled out these old Twister Blocks  from June of 2011. I think they are one of my oldest WIP's now. I've always loved them but just haven't taken the time to work on them. I pieced them on the machine but I'm going to put them together by hand and finish the quilt by hand too.

My husband's dad and step mom sent me an Amazon gift card for my birthday (last week) and I was able to get a few books that I've had in my cart FOREVER. That was fun! The day after the books came all of us girls (me, my mom and daughters) snuggled in bed and looked through the books and picked out projects we wanted to make.  I haven't had a nice morning of lounging around like that in a long time. It was lovely!

I hope all is well with you and hoping my next post will be of my finished Scrappy Trips quilt and cute little baby feet :)

Love the projects you're working on Erin. There really is nothing more satisfying than handwork.
Sorry I missed your birthday, Happy Birthday!
I'll be waiting for the happy announcement.

Good luck with the new baby! I loved those exciting days before the birth and the anticipation of a new life in the house and what that would bring. Enjoy every minute :)

Your hexies look beautiful, so do your Twister blocks. Great fabric choices. Lovely to have something on hand whilst waiting. All the best for the expected arrival.
