It’s a little bit difficult to take bump pictures of one’s self, but I tried! Here I am at 22 weeks along. We found out that we are having a baby boy and he’s already started kicking around in my belly! I’ve started planning his nursery, it’s going to be a rustic woodland theme. I got the idea after seeing Bonnie Christine’s Hello Bear collection, I am absolutely in love with it!
I’ve ordered fabric to make crib sheets, diaper pad covers and a quilt. I think I need some more fabric but I need to decide what quilt pattern I’m going to do with it before I decide to buy more!
It’s such an exciting time for us, but we are still having to make weekly trips to the hospital for Michael’s cancer treatment. I had hoped we would be farther along in treatment by now, but infections have prevented Michael from making regular progress; he has had to take chemo breaks to let his body fight infections. We’re trying to stay positive though. For more information on Mike’s cancer, read the cancer tag.
Since I’m blocked on the baby’s quilt, I started on another project in the meantime. Here is a work in progress shot:
It is a LOT of applique, but I am looking forward to the challenge!
