Exciting News!!


I have some exciting news to share and its not just that I am quilting again!! Right after Christmas I found out I was EXPECTING baby #4. The whole family is thrilled to bring home a new little baby this August. I have been very sick {understatement of the universe!} and blogging has taken an extreme back seat. Starting in March I could see the light at the end of the tunnel with this "morning sickness". I put "morning sickness" in quotes because lets be honest: "Morning sickness" = all day and night nausea {for me anyway}.

It is funny how when you are really sick and can't hardly raise your head off the pillow you start to appreciate all the things you could do and enjoyed doing everyday like: EATING, and playing with your KIDS, and carpool, and DATE NIGHT and quilting. I have been dying to get back to quilting and found the perfect quilt to do just that: Spilt 9-patch!!

At the beginning of  March I got away and went to a girls weekend and got started on this beauty. I am making it for someone special and I know how much HE loves BYU. I got the inspiration from a quilt my friend Kristin made for her husband who is a huge BYU fan also. At the girls weekend a friend of mine suggested I "split" my 9-patches for a scrappier look. We played around with the idea and fabrics and I instantly knew it was the perfect direction.

As I make more progress on the quilt I take more pictures. As for blogging I'm sure I'll be hit and miss around here. With 3 boys, one being 17 months old: Quilting Time let alone Computer Time is a precious commodity. We found out what we are having in less than two weeks so I'll post the news here!!

Happy Friday.

I was actually wondering where you went. I think we are living parallel lives. I am due in August with baby #3 and have been living on IV fluids since early December. I'm starting to have some good days mixed in with full days spent running from bed to bathroom. The things we do for our kids. Before they even get here sometimes. Congratulations on your exciting news!!! Sure hope you are back to normal soon. Or Pregnancy Normal :)

Just had to leave a post of Congratulations! I'm soooo envious, I would love another blessing in our family but with the economy and hubby's job we're lucky to pay the mortgage here lately. Wishing you a healthy pregnancy!
