Crafty Sunday...on a Tuesday

(this was knit on Sunday...however, it took until today to get a pic of it)
Looking for a quick knit? Look no further than Rebecca Danger's Chubby Chirps. Ravlery link
Quick and adorable.
I'm thinking the baby's room needs a nest full.

Daydreaming (at 9:40pm)

For the past month, I've been working away on two school assignments that surprisingly haven't caused my untimely death that I thought they would.
I keep telling myself that no education is wasted and that just because I don't particularly like this course, the information I've learned is valuable (applicable may be another arguable). I also remind myself that this pain and torture is a requirement for me keeping my current job, so really, there's no way out.
(on a side note - I am conscious to not speak of hating school in front of my little man. I don't want that to start just yet and I'm sure he'll come to that conclusion on his own some day).
So, instead of working on my essay, I've spent the last 10 minutes dreaming of all the things that I'll do in the weeks to come after I hand in my last assignment tomorrow.

Here are a few ideas:
1. Try and relish this pregnancy. We all know that babies are easier to take care of in utero.
2. Organize, organize and organize this mess of a house. Starting with the tupperware cupboard
3. Make homemade granola
4. Get some seeds started (that's a whole other post as I bought something recently that will help with this)
5. Clean up and prepare the garden, as much as I can. There's an area of grass that I'd like to dig up to put our pole beans but I'm not sure if my 'state' will allow such activity.

I'll leave you with this.

25 weeks and counting...

A Daddy Invention

Gage likes Angry Birds so daddy thought this would be a fun idea. So far there are no casualties.

I got a little carried away...

I have this obsession with fabric. This would be normal and understandable if after I acquired said fabric, I put it to good use. However, I tend to hoard a little bit and keep the fabric for that 'perfect' project...which never seems to come around (mostly because I can't bring myself to cut the fabric).
Knowing full well my inability to use beautiful fabric, I still find myself venturing over to fabricworm.com and browsing through their bundles. And now that I have a little baby girl's room to decorate, I feel less guilt about it.
As you may recall, I picked the colours I wanted to use in the nursery a few weeks ago. I've been wanting to find some bedding in those colours but have come up short so let me tell you my glee when I found this bundle of fabric at Fabricworm. Now I get the colours I want AND I get to be crafty and make the bedding myself.
Now if I can just get over my fear of cutting fabric...
