I returned from my checkup a few hours ago...it turns out I'm almost dilated to a 5 without even being in active labor! The midwife says I'm very ready and thinks this little baby will be here sooner than later. EXCITING!
Good thing I was able to finish up a few projects I've worked on the last little while. In my opinion, every little new baby needs a few handmade goodies to help welcome him/her into the world. Do you remember the "plum" onesie and booties I made while visiting my sisters in New York? Well, I finally made a matching hat to complete the outfit.
I had too much fun needle felting the stem and leaf.
Here's one with a cute little bow perched on top.
And of course this little girl is going to be adorned with a ruby bracelet!
Here's the last project I finished--a flannel blanket. It was the first time I used Mable to sew a decorative stitch.
Remember the cupcake necklaces Leah made? They are all packaged up and ready to go to give to the girls from the new baby.
And here's one last thing. Last night I found this little "Sweet Pea" that I needle felted over a year ago! Do you have any ideas what I should do with it? I'd like to use it somehow to welcome this little Sweet Pea into the world...
Yup. I think we're ready. Now I'm going to spend the rest of the day/evening cuddling with the girls.
Wish me luck!
