baby brain

I have a confession to make. My relative drop in posting and productivity over the past few months? Well ... let's just say that I was working on a pretty darn big project behind the scenes here that has been consuming a lot of my energy ... we're expecting a new addition this May! We just found out it's a boy, so I'm finally letting myself buy things like these stinking adorable sneakers. And starting some non-neutral baby craft projects!

I've had a super-cute set of eight fat quarters of coordinating car-themed flannel fabrics in my stash seemingly forever now, that I was keeping just in case. It felt so good to finally have a reason to break it out! This will be the top of a crib-sized quilt. I just tracked down some matching brown and turquoise flannel for a border, binding, and the backing so with any luck I can finish constructing the quilt this weekend. I considered a more complex quilting pattern, but ended up deciding that large squares showed off the cute prints the best. I love how it's turning out so far!


  1. Congratulations! What an exciting time and a great excuse to revisit your stash. Those fabrics complement each other nicely.

  2. Congratulations. What adorable shoes!!! And the quilt will be well loved I am sure.

  3. Hurray! Congratulations and best wishes to all!
