CELEBRATING a little boy who is still swimming in utero but excited to come meet the world early....



I have missed my regular blog sessions with you all so wanted to take advantage of this peaceful evening before the work week begins....

I am sneak peeking people's blogs and good to catch up today with quick slideshows....


The ultimate scrappy baby quilt....A new baby is trying to arrive 2 months early so it was a fun day to make a quilt with fabrics on hand.....A great challenge when no quilt stores are open!  Mom and babe are in good health as of tonight and he is still in his "hot tub". 

I love this block for some reason...I think its the zebra stripes...or the "building blocks" for life...

SO CUTE! I love this!
I always have loved giraffes. How do you make them so wonky and cool!?!?! Do you foundation piece or just do it?!?! LOVE all the fun colors, it's just so "EM". :)
Sure do hope mama and baby are holding steady... Prayers going up from here. :)

Wanted to tell ya:
My friends mama's levels went down from over 1000 to like 300ish!! Chemo is working!!! :)

Who could blame a guy for trying to get out early when he has this awesome quilt to look forward to?!

I second what Duff said! I'd walk across hot coals and lie in a prickly pear bush for one of your creations!
