Have you seen the youtube video where the man is exclaiming over a rainbow he is filming? Well, it's what comes to mind this week as I labor over one of my last three remaining "must do before baby girl is born" list of WIP's. I will show you the picture a little bit later, but first, I started cutting and pinning burp cloths from the flannel that I purchase over the shameful weekend (see Monday's post). I will be making making bibs to go with them and I have plans to make a flannel baby blanket for the either the Youth group fundraiser or the Parish school fundraiser for next year.
And now for a little "double-rainbow" action! This is sort of like "bottled rainbows" meets organic sunshine (meaning rainbows got a little melted, maybe?). This is to be a wall-hanging that someone sort of asked me to make. I believe the words, "colorful" and "modern" might have come up in the conversation and I might have taken it a little far. It's kind of a fun project though. I just have to work in the rest of the blues & purples. Then we have a whole lot of zig-zagging to get done and the usual binding fun; I think I have a fun black print I am going to use for that. I am praying that this one gets done before Friday so I can mail off my last two packages!
And finally my favorite WIP that is still on-going for another 8-15 weeks (depending if she comes early, on-time or late). I love those little lips; as soon as I saw this ultrasound picture my first thought was she looks just like my MIL! I am so happy about that because my husband looks just like his mother too (I have the best MIL in the world)! I ended up out a little too long on black Friday and we started having some contractions, so though not on official bed rest, my project numbers will be greatly reduced in the coming weeks. I am so happy that next week I will post more about the lap quilt I am working on to give away for the Baby name contest (over on my husband's blog).
