The Countdown: Day 9

as i mentioned in my previous post the only thing that is happening on the pregnancy front
is those darn braxton hicks contractions that haven't proved to be anything but a {pain}...

it was fairly productive today.
i made all the blocks in dr brody's quilt. now all i need to do is the sashing and cornerstones.

i did more laundry than i would even like to mention...
my mom and the little princess helped out by folding the baby clothes.
and not that it's blog worthy, but again, with mom's help, i finally got the slipcover back on the couch.

and one of my favorite things i did today was tidy up the space under the cradle, and made sure her bed was ready.
the little princess got the boppy ready and she now has a comfy space awaiting her.

and speaking of comfy spaces...goodnight and sleep well for me, will you!

Ooohhhhh, it's getting sooooo exciting!!! I hated those braxton hicks -- I'd be happily working away at something and they would just take over with no thought to even ask if it was ok with me! The cradle is adorable -- how fun!

The quilt you are working on is so beautiful and the crib looks so comfy! What a lucky little baby.

Oh...Dr. Brody, that name brings back memories, she delivered on of mine, because my dr was out of town. I LOVE HER.

That's so nice of you to make your Dr. a quilt. It looks like you are getting all ready. And, sorry about the Braxton Hicks, no fun!

Oh, how well I remember those last few weeks. And the last time I was two weeks late and then had surprise twins (pre-sonograms). How great that you are still able to concentrate on quilting.
