My Preggo Pictures!

This post has absolutely nothing to do with crafting, but I wanted to share my pictures I just got, I love love them!!!

I have always enjoyed being pregnant, and for the first time, I have had the blessing of having pictures taken. For some reason, it just never worked into the schedule with the first 3 kids... Mind you, I am 36 weeks pregnant in these, so I'm a little on the chunky side :)

The girl who took them is a good friend, and she posted some of these on her blog with absolutely beautiful commentary, I wish I could just cut a paste her entire blog.... So, here are a few photos of what were taken:

To be perfectly honest, I am suprised I was able to pull some of these off...

Been a Little Busy

So, haven't posted in a while, sorry for nothing new :)

Here's what I've been working on:

-Newborn/Small diaper covers for my newest bambino soon to come.
-OS Dipe- since I finally got my snap press, I need to test/alter my pattern if needed. I've got it cut out, the reinforcing pul under the snaps, and the snaps put on the front. All that I need to do now is sew on the inner, lastin or FOE the seams, and put the snaps on the tabs! YEA!! I'm pretty excited about my first snap OS Dipe! I am thinking of making them to sell, but we'll see :)
-Switching the rest of my velcro dipes to snap since my Pooka still loves to undo them, even if he's wearing pants. errr. I know, the dots I marked with are visible, I decided last minute to move them up a bit, but the ink "should" wash out... we'll find out soon enough.-Mama Cloth. I am still a little weary about these... I figure since I'm only using scraps/upcycled materials I won't feel bad if I do not find myself committing to them... But, I figure since I will be cloth diapering for quite some time, mama cloth shouldn't be such a far stretch. This is the first bunch I made, and even though me and the velour had some fightin words when sewing it right sides together with the bottom, I think they turned out pretty well :). I definitely think, for easiness purposes, I will go with miscrosuede/suedecloth from now on...
-Baby blanket for one of my childhood friends who is expecting her first girls. I LOVE how it's turning out!
All of this while conquering my ever-growing laundry pile, super cleaning all my bathrooms and kitchen, just incase today is "the day", and sorting/organizing all my piles of stuff I create that will "get picked up tomorrow."

I-Spy or Name Blocks

First, I will start by telling you where I got this idea: The lady who's blog this is is simply Amazing! Her name is Ashley- CHECK IT OUT!

So, it was her post about Cloth Baby Blocks where the actual project idea is.

I have lots of fabric for doing the infamous "I-Spy" quilts, did a few fabric swaps in the past... So, I figured, why not use them to make some blocks? Here is what turned out:
These were a gift for a little girl, hence the uber-girly fabric choices :)

For the sides with the embroidery, I cut a piece of muslin the same size as the square and just sewed it as a backing for the pink fabric. I really like how they turned out. Also, I stuffed mine with scraps of cotton fabric (woven, flannel) to give the blocks a little more weight and firmness.
