9 Flower Wednesday

I managed 9 flowers and 12 half flowers this week. I'm going to try to get them all connected before my baby arrives. I'm currently 1 day over due so I don't know if I'll get a chance. If I had a choice I would rather have the baby out, although the quilt is covering the floor in the baby's room at the moment.

It's good to know the quilt top will be finished soon. Its been a while since I've finished a quilt and this will be the first one that I have ever made that will not experience a sewing machine.

Keep a little sunshine in your pocket...

I'm loving having this time off before the baby arrives. I'm catching up on projects and doing easy things for the baby. One of those projects is my "Sunshine in your pocket" stitcheries. I've now completed all 9 and now have to look for some cream and red fabric to cut up and make into a quilt. This one was half done and lost in my sewing room a few months ago but rediscovered when I finally had the time to make my messy sewing room back into an organised sewing room.

Ready for the baby...

I may be due next week but the nursery has been majority done since April. Every time I walk into the baby's room I can't help but smile. I just love everything about it and how it signifies the beginning of our family. Although the room is blue we haven't found out what the sex of the baby is. It's more of a sky blue to suit the decals I bought off etsy. I've finally found a place for the baby quilt I made a few years ago.

I made up these easy to sew softies from Saffron Craig that are sitting on an old chair that I recovered in some pretty cupcake fabric.

I've had to put a baby gate up to keep my dog, Rupert, from getting in there when no one's around. He's managed to sneak in their a few times as it's the brightest room in the house and he loves lying in the sun. He managed to take a rubber ducky and chew it to smithereens. But we still love him and he can go in there as long as I'm there too.

30 Flower Wednesday...

Spring has arrived in Australia, so I figured a flower update was in order. I have sewn all my previous flowers together and completed another 30 flowers. I still don't know how big this quilt is going to be...
