Some may call it nesting

So I finally got around to taking some pictures - I'm the picture taker around here, so this was no easy feat. Abby actually took them for me and they turned out great for a 6 year old being behind the camera. I don't really care for my facial expressions in the last one, but on well. Enjoy the big belly!



















Now I'm not really one for nesting. I don't really get urges to clean or sort often, pregnant or not. And since I enjoy crafty things all the time....
Well anyway - somehow I stumbled onto the cutest blog calles A Feathered Nest - I absolutely love it. And the day that I found it she had posted directions for a cute, easy baby blanket. So I was making my last Walmart trip - to get, hopefully, the last few things I will need for this baby and I saw this adorable, soft, fluffy fabric (with a ridiculous price tag, mind you) that I just had to have. So I got some and this is what I came up with:



I love the way it turned out and I can't wait to wrap our new little on in it. I want one big enough for me - but that would be way to pricey!

Well, I'm off to pick up the pizzas for dinner - yay! no cooking or clean up for me tonight.

T-minus 14 days and counting!
PS: Dearest Auntie - I think I'm ready for that wooden leg story now.

Lisa,
Love your blog! What a cute name. And the blanket is adorable. I know the last few weeks of pregnancy are the longest. Have a wonderful time! And tell Abby she is a great photographer!

Ah, a quilt, for WARM Hawaii. it is somewhat, wonderfully, cutest of all cute, though. Good job, cute pregnant mom.

Wooden leg story coming soon. I actually hope you don't wait.

PS How do you have time to make a quilt? And where do you have room to set it up?

You are amazing!

Way cute blankie! I won't lie, I'm very jealous that you are barefoot and in short sleeves. Hopefully the snow will end soon! Can't wait to see pics of the new baby!
