sneak peak and misc pictures

Even though I have 3 weeks to go ( OR LESS!)
I am able to sew, not so much long arm quilt anymore, though I might try this week, we'll see.

I started working on the 3rd quilt for McCall's, here's a sneak peak.

what do you think it could be?

and fabrics all cut up for the blocks.
sorry that's all I want to show :-)

Sonja's room is all painted and the crib set up and of course a quilt is ready too!

Even though I'm getting to the HARD stage of pregnancy, hot, miserable, can't sleep etc.
there's one perk with being pregnant.... built in table!

Wonder what Peanut will say with a new PERSON in the house soon....?

he likes to take a nap right outside my craft room

now some ODD pictures, I saw this on the upper ledge or our patio yesterday, have no clue what this THING is, it's gross looking and it was rather big.

at night I looked out in the backyard and saw this cool mushroom cloud, all the other clouds in the sky were flat and thin looking, except this one, and it was so pretty reflecting the sunset.

I have been pondering the fores applique project I want to start, if I should machine applique or needle turn, and call me NUTS but I think I will do needle turn, then I can also have a project to bring to the hospital! see, I'm planning more what I want to do at the hospital, haven't planned baby stuff to bring yet..... :-) I will though.
I just want this week to be over, our church is having night time VBS this week starting tonight and I'm teaching the crafts to about 30 kids, my pastor's wife is praying that I won't go into labor TOO early... he he

Ah that built in table will desappear before you know it.

Your tummy is looking very stretched; I am sure you are basically miserable now. Peanut is so adorable. Have hubby take a blankie or something that touched Sonja home from the hospital and let him sniff/roll on it to get used to her scent before she comes home.
