Hello Blog...Have I Got Some News For You!!

I have been missing from blog land lately...but for very good reason I do believe.  This photo might help explain...

YES, I'm pregnant!!  This wonderful little baby has taken over my body and given me no mercy.  Well, not until lately when my pb&j diet has evolved back to more grown up food and my bed time has been pushed back until about 9pm instead of immediately following dinner.  It has been a wonderful experience so far.  I am now 19 weeks along and we only have 2 more weeks until we can find out if it's a boy or a girl. 

So back to the photo above...my wonderful hubs (pictured) is a computer person.  He writes and trouble shoots html code all day long.  He spends hours in the evening surfing the internet.  And I have never known him to purchase anything without first doing hours of online research for the item.  However, when it comes to selecting a baby name he refused to look at any of the millions of names in data bases found all over the web.  No, he needed a real life 688 page book to hold.  I'm finding out early that babies will make you do some funny things.

So now that I'm feeling human again, let the baby crafting begin!! 

The start of our first baby quilt...

And some burp cloths I made for a new mom and of course our baby got a matching set as well...

Unfortunately, the list of projects I want to make keeps growing every day so now I must go to my room and make something!!


  1. That is wonderful news, Holly. Congrats to you and the new Dad!

  2. Yay!!!! The CMQG is having a baby boom! Congratulations, Holly!

  3. Yaaaaaaaay! When I saw the title in the blog roll........ Yay! I'd been stalking your blog waiting to see more of your awesome projects and was going to give you some grief at the next meeting but I guess I'll have to cut you some slack now. CONGRATULATIONS. I will say that I sightly hoped the news would be that you were moving to Pleasant Ridge though ;)

  4. Squeeeee!! Congrats, lady!!! Can't wait to hear all about it next week at CMQG!

  5. Fantastic! Congrats to you! Isn't it great when you feel human again and can really feel excited about it?! Love that quilt, too.

  6. Congrats Holly! So happy for you and your hubby. Show this website to him. He might give up the book and spend too many hours looking up baby names on this: www.babynamewizard.com
    It's addicting... in a good way :)
