This summer I saved enough to get them both framed and they are now all hanging on the wall!

I’ve also been working on a picture for my son’s bedroom. I bought it 2 years ago when we started trying to get pregnant but refused to actually work on it until everything worked the way it was supposed to. So, this was started 3/5/10 and completed 8/17/10. I was determined to finish it before the baby shower which is scheduled for this weekend!

I know I’ll be able to finish September’s blocks, but I don’t know if I’ll be on time with the rest of the year. The baby is due in October and I just might not be able to get to them. We’ll see what I can manage!
