Fresh Sewing Day

I haven't participated in Fresh Sewing Day in awhile, and since I'm being kept away from my sewing machine by my brand new baby (no complaints!), I thought it might be a good time to just look back.

This month, I finished the Dyed quilt top:


After talking with a blogger friend, I've decided to send it out for quilting to make sure it gets the treatment it deserves.

I shared that I had started quilting my first do. Good Stitches bee quilt:

I'm all done with that! I haven't had a chance to post about it, but will as soon as I can :)

At 40 weeks pregnant, I was getting super antsy and decided to coax baby out by starting his quilt on his due date. I'm not the best nester, I know, but at least I got it done before he arrived!

In addition, I talked about buying craft books...

...and my huge sewing room purge (find here and here).
I also painted a wall. But I don't have a photo of that...

Whew. I must say, I got a lot done during my 9th month of pregnancy! Linking up to Lily's Quilts:

  1. Congratulations! How lovely that you got to make him a quilt before he was born! Wow you've been super productive. I love the Dyed quilt top, it's really striking.

  2. Don't forget that you're so crafty you make people! You achieved more in the 9th month of your pregnancy than I do in a normal year ;-)

  3. I was super productive late in my pregnancy too! I think it's part of the nesting thing! Congratulations to you x

  4. You had a great month and your baby is that cherry on top :-)

  5. You had a great month - I bet that sewing room purge felt fabulous! Congrats on baby :) x
