although my daughter didn't say anything, i know she was disappointed that i had not made anything for her soon-to-be-born son when we had her baby shower last weekend. my intentions had been good, but i just had not gotten anything made. so today i bought some wonderfully soft and cuddly polyester fleece in a lovely creamy shade. then i bought a dotted and a striped cotton fabric that coordinate. the shades of brown, cream, rust, blue, green and yellow looked so fresh against the cream polyester. i really had no idea what design i planned to make; it is fun to wing these things.
a few hours later, i've hand cut and stitched a dog and a doghouse onto one half of the fabric. now i'm in the process of knotting the two pieces of polyester together with embroidery floss.
it's turning out quite cute and i'm pleased with it so far.
i also bought a few new canvasses today. i'm brewing a few ideas for art for the new baby room. they'll be fun and i'll post photos soon.
i'm off to bed. we're having jenna's 4th birthday party tomorrow -- the day before her baby brother is born. busy family times and we're loving every minute of it!!!!
