I told myself I wouldn't complain about another week being gone, again, but then this weekend I lost a week. Seriously, lost an entire week. Or my mind, I'm not certain which. We met a few new people at a BBQ, and of course everybody was asking about when Goose is due, and I was telling everybody he's due in 7.5 weeks. Then in church on Sunday, everybody was asking how I was doing & how much time I had left. Only 7.5 weeks! Woo-hoo!
Then, on our way home from the furniture store Sunday evening, I started thinking about it for some reason, and it seemed odd. Wasn't I 33 weeks last week? But that would mean I'm going to be 34 weeks this week. But that means I actually have 6.5 weeks left. So I whipped out my phone & counted the weeks. Sure enough, only 6 weeks left! I freaked out in the truck & hubby just laughed at me. I lost an entire week! But like I told him, I suppose it's better to lose a week than to think I'm further along than I really am. Because let me tell you, at this point, I am so ready to be done with this whole pregnancy business! Don't get me wrong, I know I've had it easy, and I know Goose will never again be this easy to take care of, but I'm ready to have my baby, & get my body back to myself, rather than sharing it. :)
So anyways...yes, it's Wednesday again, which means it's time for another WIP post.
Started: Something new! And not only something new, but something for me! I'm really excited about this. I got this great Moda Punctuation charm pack from a friend & have been trying to figure out what I want to do with it, and finally decided I need a little pouch/clutch to throw a couple things in when I have to run quick errands on the weekends. Sometimes I hate taking my whole purse, but I'm always afraid I'm going to set something down in the store when I just grab my wallet & phone.
I'm going to do a quick tutorial on this pouch later to share how I put in zippers. I've had a few people ask, so I'm happy to help.
I fully intended on getting all the pieces cut & start putting blocks together for my Kaleidoscope quilt this weekend, especially since I'm a couple weeks behind. But when I went to cut out my template (which I know I printed!), I couldn't find it anywhere. Hopefully I can get started cutting this week & start to get caught up soon.
In progress: Still plugging away at my June bee block. I'm starting to feel really bad about not having it done yet, even though I didn't get the fabric until two weeks late. I did finish up the second practice block (cutting "pattern" pieces worked great, and definitely cut down on the waste...sort of...), but haven't played around with placement yet. It's high on my priority list!
Goose's quilt top is done!!! I can't even tell you how excited I am about this. I've also decided how I want to make the back, if I can order a bit more fabric. I'm just waiting to hear back about that. I suppose the quilt top is a finish, but the full quilt is still very much in progress.
The nursery is almost done! We finally went to get the crib this weekend and got pretty much everything set up. We (well, mostly just me, since hubby doesn't really care) absolutely fell in love with this crib this winter. I'm so glad we were able to get it for Goose!
The only other thing we still want to pick up is a changing table, which will go along the wall on the right. The room is a bit crowded, especially right now with the swing in there, but it's not terrible considering how small of a room it is.
I do have a few things to hang up on the walls, but otherwise it's pretty close to being done!
Completed: Goose's quilt top! It's not much, especially since I only had two seams left, but it's still something. Even Raven likes it. :)
Make sure you head over to Freshly Pieced to see what everybody else has been up to this week.
Until next time...
