Today I turned 28. This has probably been the best birthday loot I have ever received. Look at all these books! It looks like the bookstore came to me! I love how different they all are. I mean they all have to do with sewing and cooking, but different kinds of sewing and cooking. *grin* I have been put on partial bed rest this week. I have struggled with high blood pressure my past two pregnancies, and this one is unfortunately having similar problems. My family was so generous and took the girls this weekend, so I could rest. It looks like this little guy is going to be making an April appearance rather than a May appearance. Anyway, at least on the couch I have all this fabulous browsing!
Plus, the entire collection of Modern Meadow if fat quarters! I love it! I have plans for a quilt for our bed out of some of these. I have never gotten the entire of line of any collection. It feels so gloriously...indulgent.
My mom made me this diaper bag from Amy Butler's Sweet Harmony Tote pattern. I loved this pattern, but I really didn't want to make it myself. I love Amy's patterns, but they take so long sometimes with all the interfacing and cutting you need to do. It is so nice to have the bag I wanted with no work at all! Didn't it turn out great?
Juliana is the queen of birthdays. She loves them with a passion. She made me this bleu-ti-ful butterfly cake and was so proud. Plus, there is me in all my 38 weeks pregnant puffy face glory.
I had plans for a big birthday giveaway because I have some fabulous things collected here for that, but with all this pregnancy craziness I think it will wait until next month. Keep an eye out for it though because I have some really great patterns all ready to be given away to somebody.
