Keeping busy...

So my latest endeavor has been to start a garden. I have really been enjoying this new hobby. There is so much to learn... and luckily I have two great teachers, my parents! My parents have an amazing yard. They have been so helpful by generously giving me some treasures from there garden (splitting off perennials and vegetables) and advice on how to keep them healthy!
I have started my yard with side vegetable and flower garden. We used the bricks from our home's old chimney to boarder the garden. Currently we are working on making a patio/fire pit area. This area is in front of the flower portion of the garden. We are digging up the area right now and using the earth to level off the other side of the yard... so right now the yard looks a little dumpy, but don't judge it yet! (below is my quick re-touching of the last photo for how the yard will look)

6 months ago...

Six months ago I was just 3 months pregnant.
I remember feeling like my belly was just starting to growing. Little did I know how much it would grow! In a few more days I will be full term... pregnant for nine full months. It has been a long time... I am ready for baby to stop kicking me in my ribs and start crying in my arms! I am also ready to have me body back... it will be nice to roll over in the middle of the night and not have to to wake up for the event.

My First Baby Blanket!

My first baby blanket! ...I should clarify, I mean the first one that I have made for my baby.
Yesterday I had a little extra time in the evening and a little extra fabric. I love it! I just want to make more! I have been looking at alot of crafts online where people have been using vintage fabrics... like retro sheets and pillow cases, so I am thinking about trying incorporating in my next project.

So I bought a used bassinet, thinking I would just use it as it was. Then I got a little excited and decided to recover the bassinet. This turned out to be a way bigger project then I thought... luckily I had so much help from my mom! In the end it turned out way too cute and I love it! While laboring away (oh so pun-ny), it was fun to dream about the baby that will soon get to sleep in it! (Below is a before picture)
