I'm still here, I promise!

Ok, my updating is getting worse and worse instead of better, but I blame my body. I am currently 35 weeks into my pregnancy, have been having contractions since Monday afternoon, am on medication to stop said contractions, and am generally physically quite miserable. At my ultrasound last week, the baby was estimated to be around 6 lbs 8 oz, which certainly explains my discomfort!

His nursery is finally done and ready for him, even if he still has to share it with my quilting frame for the time being. Its ok anyway, as he'll be sleeping in a bassinet in our room for the first couple of months. About the only thing we need now is a glider/rocking chair & ottoman for late night nursing. And a baby. But things are pointing towards him arriving fairly soon, possibly by the end of next week.

I have 3 commissions to get cracking on. Fortunately they are all for friends and family, so they understand that it will be a little bit before I can get them completed. One is partway there, as I was able to get the materials and get started back in February, but the other two aren't so lucky. Another fortunate thing- it's heading towards summer, so the quilts aren't as urgent as they could be.

Things are changing, wish us luck! =)
