I'm trying to get the rest of my quilt squares posted soon, in case I go into labor and have a baby. I would have had Zari a week ago and Dio a day ago...so it could be any time. Of course I could have almost 2 weeks left if it were Inga.
For my 8th month of pregnancy, I created a quilt square with chevrons in roughly the same tones as my Blessingway invitation. This quilt will be made only with supplies I already have on hand. It's a great way to reduce my fabric stash. I named it "Blessingway."
Sewing chevrons is a pain. And even though I cut very long strips of fabric and kept a shallow angle, I barely was able to make the square big enough. I had a few other colors that were part of the original piece, but there was no room to include them on the top and bottom.
We picked up our car today. It took a lot longer than we had imagined. Poor kids were in the car(s) all day. They each got a huge balloon at the dealership, so that kept them content on the way home. Eric drove the Mazda5, and he says it definitely handles like a car rather than like a minivan. I believe the adjective he used to describe it was "zippy."
Buying this car was a real act of faith for me--faith that I am really, truly going to have a baby, hope that all will go well. It seems really audacious to imagine that I am really going to have another child! And who knows, maybe it will be quite soon. I've been having lots of crampiness and some decent, though irregular, contractions. Nothing like labor, but there's definitely stuff happening.
