Babies and beaches

Lot's of baby bumps these days, a few girls at work are expecting as well as my sister-in-law. I got to embrace all the baby cuteness today while designing up shower invitations for a co-worker.
Sorry, I went ahead and blanked out the rsvp so I guess you bloglanders can't join us! =) haha Her nursery is decorated in these colors, with dandelions, bunnies & dragonflies - super cute! I've always loved designing invitations!

Wednesday my brother and his wife go to the doctor to find out if they will be having a pink or a blue.... I'm slightly partial to a girl, but I'm ecstatic to be an aunt either way. They aren't due to February though, so I've still got plenty of time to practice and get ready!

Instead of packin a baby bump I'm packing luggage soon! The cruise countdown is down to 17 days and I couldn't be more ready! Yesterday, fall showed up with a vengeance here in Indy, and I'm pretty sure he's planning on sticking around. Real windy and chilly weather lately. I'll be sure to brag plenty about our nice, WARM weather aboard the Carnival Liberty in 2 and a half weeks!!



I've been browsing the web the past few days looking at yet to be released fabrics, I've added some of my favorites that I'm eagerly awaiting!

1. Chinese Takeout by Sheri Berry for Northcott Fabrics (coming any day, via Fat Quarter Quilt Shop) I'm eager to get a look at those first two.... they look super cute, I'm still a little unsure about the rest though....

2. Dolce by Tanya Welan for Free Spirit, expected at Fat Quarter Quilt Shop in November. Birds, flowers and hexagons - OH MY! I'm a sucker for bright graphic prints! Look at the beautiful gray and pink floral in the second row. Mama likey! I'm getting so many great ideas for these prints!

2. Polly Goes to Paris by Henry Glass Fabrics. This has wonky blocks written all over it, with the girl & her poodle staring in the middle of each block! Very cute bgq (baby girl quilt) potential..

4. And lastly, what's a wishlist without a little Amy Butler?! Her new Love collection by Westminster has some real lookers

I better start saving my pennies (and nickels... and dimes.... and quarters!!


Oh how I love old stuff!

So the darling boyfriend is doing some painting tonight and I'm pretty sure that means Ill be waltzing my lil booty to the antique mall.

I always fall in love with furniture- chairs in particular. Hope to find some goodies! Now that I can blog from my phone I'll be sure to post pics later!
