30 Weeks this Thursday!

Things are really flying now... hard to believe it is only about 9 weeks until we meet Liv!  We're working on getting things in place for her- the furniture is in route, and we got a large bookshelf purchased and assembled already...  Once the crib comes, I'm sure her room will come along quickly- I'm feeling anxious about it!  (and, judging from the solid kick to the ribs I just got while typing this, Liv wants us to get on it as well!  haha!)

The other day, Ryan and I took Liv's bedroom set with us to the fabric store, and picked out some materials that featured all the different colors in her room.  I've been working hard for the past few days- cutting, ironing, sewing...  

Liv's quilt:
I think it turned out pretty darn cute so far, and now I just need to have it quilted and edged.  My girlfriend Heather said she has just paid someone with a quilting machine to do this in the past (rather than hand quilting) and I think I'm going to follow suit.  Shere, are you reading this???  ;)

Hope everyone is doing well.  We're great, and aside from an aching back by the end of the day (compounded by sewing!) I don't have any big complaints!

Take care,

I clicked on the photo and enlarged it. Then I could really check out the patterns you picked. I am looking forward to seeing ALL your finished projects ;)
