Guess What This is For?

I am happy to announce that I have purchased this beautiful baby fabric for my own purposes!!  Sometime in late May, probably when Matt and I are scurrying off to our new life, our baby will grace us with her(?) presence and we couldn't be more joyful, anxious, relieved and grateful.  Matt's a little disappointed that the babe might impinge on his dream roadtrip, but what can you do?  I guess that's what the last five years should have been about.

A couple of asides:
  • I'm sure this information is crazy premature, I mean I'm not even 6 weeks pregnant, but a friend of mine told me that since I had been so open about everything else in my life, now was not the time to be reserved.
  • No, I don't feel pregnant yet, no symptoms except the slightest twinge of quesiness from time to time.
  • We transferred two embryos back at the beginning of the month.  Next week, Matt and I will find out if we can hear one heart beat or two!  Talk about being anxious.

My New Favorite Project

While I await the news of my recent rendezvous into fertility, here are a few pictures of my new favorite project.  I made it for Mother Marler to say thanks ever so much for letting us crash at your house for the summer.

I love the colors, I love the pinwheels, and of course we all know how much I love the stars.  I have to say though that the whole time I was working on it I was so scared that it was going to be a miserable failure.  I mean look at all those points.  It's by no means perfect, but I am currently one proud mother to this beautiful new quilt.
