Precious Little #2 is due any day now...mid-August...but my daughter is convinced that this one will come early.
I felt the same way with my second...who ended up being 3 weeks late! Every day for FIVE WEEKS...I was sure it was THE day.
They don't let that happen nowadays. Especially not here in Colombia...where the hospital is very much in control of how things go in labor and delivery. (But I'm positive everything will happen when & how it's supposed to).
In the last ultrasound picture - taken last week - she looks just like my mom! No kidding! Beautiful child! I'm sure she'll be totally cooperative.
Me, being who and how I am...have waited until practically the last minute to get a quilt made for her. (And it ain't made yet).
I just don't 'do' traditional very well - and in my opinion - if it's something you sleep under - no matter how 'artsy' - it's still traditional.
So...its been difficult to think about, begin, continue and work on this quilt - in a way. In another way, I've loved the actual doing of it...mostly.
I've prayed for Precious Little #2 and centered my thoughts on her and her big sister, mommy, daddy...family, etc as I've worked on it...as I'm sure we all do...so I love that part of it. And I love the colors and fabrics.
It's getting those lines straight and figuring out how I want to put the whole thing together, and worrying about how my free motion stitching will feel on the bottom that I have trouble with.
BUT, I've decided this will be a floor quilt. One that she can sit on and if someone walks across it occasionally...so be it. That decision relieved so much stress that you wouldn't believe it.
I can, and did make my own clothes for many years. I followed a pattern to a T and came out with some pretty awesome outfits. But the thought of following pattern directions these days just totally turns me off. Toe - tah - lee.
So...these are the blocks...all different sizes...that I've put together. Now, I'm trying to figure out what goes where in the big picture. I wonder if there's a way I can put the pix in a mosaic and move them around that way?!? Hmmm.
Remember my last post...thoughts become things. I need to practice what I preach.
