I haven't done much quilting or sewing lately.
Actually, since I found out Sonja it breech, I've been feeling down and sad that I might have another C section. the doctor didn't feel it was safe to do an external VERSION, but this week I have been going to a chiropractor a few times, I don't think she has turned but just getting my hips and stuff aligned is good- I've never been to a chiropractor before, so it's all new to me.
Two days ago there was a msg from the doctors office that they want to schedule the C section, just in case, I haven't called them back..... I don't want to :-(
The doctor told me he's willing to let me go into labor and wait as long and possible to see if she turns, but he's not hopeful- I AM!
so anyways, just worrying about all this and feeling huge and uncomfortable I haven't been in my sewing room for a week and had a really bad day yesterday, so my husband told me that maybe I should try and do SOMETHING today, just to keep my mind off of things and do what I love doing.
Of course I did have a "plan" for something to bring to the hospital- haven't packed clothes for me or Sonja yet, but now I have a portable applique project :-)
This is what I worked on today.
remember I had mentioned this pattern before?
I picked out the chipmunk block and prepped all the pieces for it.
isn't he cute?? though I never cared for the colors on the pattern, but I picked a black background and then mottled "muted" colors from connecting threads.
here's the colors!
now I can't wait to get started on this one- 38 little applique pieces plus embroidery for the eyes and whiskers.
I had to put in a pic of Peanut too :-)
and handy hubby made this lego table for the kids, so that when SOMEONE is old enough to crawl/walk around she won't get into the tiny lego pieces.
I will keep you posted- 12 more days to go until my due date.
