Off the Needles!

DSC_7627I finished it!!!! I actually finished on Monday (3/3), but just got around to taking pictures today.  I kept forgetting to take the good camera upstairs with me and I only go up twice a day anymore.  It took me 2 months (almost exactly) of work and I did leave 2 of the repeats out because I didn’t think it needed to be any longer and because she’ll be here soon!  Of course I finished it before my c-section was scheduled, but we found out yesterday that it is planned for 3/21, that’s only 2 weeks from tomorrow!!!! I can’t wait to wrap her in this blanket totally made with mommies love!  Now I can work on hexies until I get more yarn so I can start a blanket for Kimmie’s friend who is due in July.  Gotta keep practicing!DSC_7629

Before Alex was born I made a signature quilt and had everyone at the shower sign it.  Well we aren’t having a shower for little girl so I couldn’t do the same thing.  However I have decided that I will make signature blocks and anyone that comes to visit at the hospital or here at home needs to sign them.  Then eventually I’ll put it all together into a quilt and it can hang in her room like Alex’s does.  I’ve already designed the quilt and I’ve pulled some pink fat quarters out of the stash.  Need to check one more place to see if there are any more pinks, might get a few more at the new Joann’s that’s opening tomorrow.  Alex will be staying at my parents Saturday night, so hopefully Sunday I can cut everything out on the Studio and start sewing.  Alex likes to help me push the pedal on the sewing machine, so maybe he can help me next week too!

Off to rest my back, teaching EQ tonight and my back hurts after sitting at the computer too long!
