The 2-3 weeks crafting blitz

Now that I'm getting nearer to my due date (25 days to go, according to the ticker), I listed the project I'd really like to have done by that time...

1) Diaper bag with a safe place for my canon rebel.

2)Bunting doll like those:

(click on the pictures for their etsy shops)

For the little one coming!

3)Re-do the cushion for the wooden rocking chair that has been given to us.

4)Clean the bedroom wall that is currently FULL of fabric boxes. The BF can't wait for this one!!

5)Pick and assemble the crib we've been given.

6)That one is a maybe- Make a quilt for the coming one :)

7) Enjoy the summer with my girl !

Mariann is now switched to a grown-up bed! I had to stay with her a little at first, but she did the whole night without getting up! I was so glad to see the worn out crib go. She still waited for her dady to come pick her up on the morning... Even if her safety rail only does half of the bed and she can easily get off, it seems like she think she can't... But she was smilling and the only thing that got her up is to tell her that we'd go at my mom's after breakfast.
She loved to read stories in her bed instead of ours!

Oh, and that ugly futon you may have seen in some pictures is gone too! Whoohoo! Instead there's a 2 place Elran. Wonders for my really swollen legs!

Speaking of those, and the pregnancy. I trully can't wait now! Everything hurts at that point, and I'm considered "at term" in 5 days, which date they consider safe to give birth in a birth house (before I'd have to go to the hospital, yuk!) so we'll see.... can't do much more than wait at this point... But I'm to the point where I'm dreading to go to sleep. The baby is now fully engaged which makes my back problem worse. Else everything is nice, my iron level should have gotten up, too.

So now that we're back home I'm getting the place ready for its newcomer. I won't post much in the upcoming weeks but I'll show you the diaper bag and doll and rocker when they are done. Maybe one last belly picture. Oh, and the baby of course!

Any bet on the sex?


  1. another girl maybe!

  2. It's a boy! Just because I'm hopeful and I like the idea of a little couple.

  3. The bandanna dresses you made are adorable! She must have seen them when looking at the tutorial I posted at T&J as well. Too bad I am still a novice at gathering, so I'll have to stick with the elastic waist bands.
