A little sigh, and it's February!

Friends! First, I know I have a lot of apologizing (and sewing!) to do. I'm behind! And dreadfully so! BUT! Tomorrow is Sunday, and I really think I can catch up. I really do. Really really.

And, to make matters worse, it's my month to mail out fabric! Am I prepared? Only partially... I have loads of beautiful fabric for which I had all the best intentions, but like so many things, I'm behind.

You see, I have a bun in the oven! Well truth be told, I'm 39 (!) weeks pregnant, so I have no time to waste! I've been commanded to be on the couch for the remainder of my pregnancy, but I've been letting myself sneak off to take care of things in the mornings, and tomorrow it will be this! I can't wait!

We're having a boy sometime this month, and we're terribly excited. I have these lovely fabrics, which I intended to make bibs and little things out of, but I now can't do it -- what if I make said bibs and we don't use them? I'll be heartbroken. A beautiful quilt on the other hand? Sure to be used! Voila!

I've used gray, yellow and white in our bedroom for the baby, so I'm going to use what I have on hand, in gray and white, to send you along with the super cute prints. I don't mind at all if you add from your stash, if you'd like.

My style in quilts is simple, modern, and not especially sophisticated... I love this one:

Well, I love everything she does...

And here are the fabrics I'm sending out! I totally love them...

If you don't use all of the prints, I'd love to have them back if there's enough to salvage... thanks!

Thanks too for being patient with me, and I apologize for being a behind-the-ball-quilt-bee participant. Tomorrow is sewing day and chances are I'll have a lot more to post! : ) Thank you in advance for lovely blocks for our little boy!

I can't believe you've been quiet about it for so long :)

Rest up though! A happy and healthy baby is much better than a completed quilt block! :)

Congratulations - how exciting! And I can't wait to get the fabric and make a block for your little guy!
