Time for a break

Just thought I'd share - finally.
He made it, perfectly, on Jan. 12, 2011.
Kayson Ellis Stanworth, 7 lbs. 0 oz. and 20 inches.
Me bundling him up in his quilt. I love it all around him. He is such a sweet little guy. He's everything I wanted!

I also crocheted this little hat for him - he gets cold so easily!

And now I guess I'll have my "maternity leave" from the sewing machine - I'm actually sending it out for a "tune up" which will take about 3 weeks.

And then... oh my! I'm sure I'll have more ideas and projects stored up that I'll be dying to do!

Nesting turned quilting...

So, we'll just pretend it hasn't been a month since my last post.
Lame, I know.
But at least I've been sewing my brains out and having a blast doing it.

Baby quilt with staggered squares in Pure by Sweetwater for Moda.

Baby quilt in Tweet Tweet by Keiki for Moda.

Lap quilt in Pure by Sweetwater for Moda.

Baby quilt in Lollipop by Sandy Gervais for Moda.

Another baby quilt in Pure by Authentic for Moda.

Obviously, I had a little too much fun with the Pure fabric line. I couldn't stop! I loved it. And the backings on these are all exquisite fabrics. Check them out with more pics in the shop.

On a side note - technically I'm due today... no baby yet though. Little guy is being stubborn but I'm hoping to be induced tomorrow morning if nothing happens today. So I guess all my nesting energy got channeled into making these quilts and some things for the little boy. I'll just keep my fingers crossed that he'll pop out today.
Does stitching induce labor? I'm sure we could add it to the list of crazy wives tales.
