Getting Ready

We are SO ready for Baby Girl's arrival.

{So ready.}

But she's not due for another week. Two if you're going by the date they gave me at the doctor {I am not}.

So we wait.

{With hideously swollen ankles}

And do what any impatient mama would do . . .

{Well, besides complain. I'll admit it, I'm a big whiney baby}

Give up?

Sew, of course.


Little Miss No-Name deserves a pretty new blankie, does she not?


I thought so too ;)

Most of these are just scrap fabrics I've had lying around from different projects. But I love them so. The seaside rose has been a favorite of mine for years, and I'm so happy it has a home in this blanket.

Now . . . I just can't wait to use it!

Love that blanket! you are so talented.

MiMi said...

That's beautiful! If I used scraps I have around here it would look like a psychotic/drunk clown made the blanket.
I was really thinking she came this weekend!

Since she's used to be all warm a blanket is perfect. She'll be here before you know it.

Oh, how the last few weeks are the worst. The not knowing when the big day will happen and are we prepared.
I do love the blanket. The colors are perfect for a little girl.
Can't wait to meet the new addition. Take care of yourself!

LOVE it! The baby blanket is beautiful. I can't wait till baby girl gets here either! I bet you will have her when I'm in FL!

Good luck! Cameron was a long 24 hours, the Caden 6. Hopefully this next one will be quick. I'm praying for a healthy baby and momma!

Gorgeous! I love the seaside rose too. Absolutely stunning for baby no-name :) Is it me, or is No-name sounding better and better as a name? (I stole that line from "Friends") :)
