handmade is the best...

This beautiful baby quilt was made by my dear friend Beth. I absolutely love it! Beth wants all the quilts she makes to be used up and probably not hung up. Dear Beth, I promise to not keep this quilt on the wall forever. It's just so pretty I am really enjoying just looking at it every time I walk by the room, it is perfect, it is a work of art, and so cheerful and I promise that someday it will be slept with, read and played upon and used, used, used. Thank you for the many hours that you spent working on this for our wee one. Love ya!

I haven't done much sewing during this pregnancy but the day Beth gave this to me I was so inspired, I had to sew something so I whipped up a couple of dishtowels. I haven't taken a picture of them.
Today I made these burp cloths. I was going to buy some plain white ones at Target yesterday but I just couldn't do it. First of all. I had the fabric at home to make these and secondly these are way happier to look at-I think.
My mother in law made the baby some beautiful crocheted things which I will wait to show you until she wears them. But here are some of the receiving blankets that she crocheted the edging on. so lovely...
Then there was this sweet diaper cake made by two of my neighbors. So kind of them and they know my colors...
Anyway, I had a visit to the midwife this morning.
2 cm. and 80% effaced...
She says anytime now...
I cannot wait to see my baby's face...
God is good! This has been a good pregnancy.
I am ready to begin the next chapter...
