finish quilt - tick

As I hand stitched the fourth and final corner of aqua binding to a vintage sheet quilt my mind raced with up and coming projects which have been filed, waiting to be let loose :)

 I am not a fan of having multiple works in progress when it comes to craft. When it comes to craft I work best to complete something under pressure. Pressure this January arrived in the desire to knit, quilt, stitch or crochet some sweet things for our first little bub.

You see I'm getting quite nesty these days. I have been content with cleaning the house for the past 4 weeks. Oh school holidays you are the best! There has been an uncommon urge of constant cleaning of our floors and carpets, organising and labelling (DYMO labeller - a household and classroom teacher must!) of kitchen spice shelves, hanging of lovely organised compartments in the laundry cupboard, putting up a new bathroom medicine cabinet .... to name a few.. I won't even go into the gorgeous things that are happening with the nursery and our old feral blue (now sand coloured) carpets!

So now that this huge sweet vintage sheet quilt is finished the creative bones in my body, which have not been exercised for quite some months I may add, can get to planning.

An an even more exciting note - bubs has made my tummy pop over the past 2 weeks. It's really happening now! We're quite amazed by the whole rounded tummy deal ... it's been written on by the boy and is sung to daily. I am just LOVING being pregnant these days - finally :)
