snowed in!

Thanks everyone for your birthday wishes for my little one last week - and your kind comments.  I worry about what to share sometimes, but I like to share what's on my mind - and well, my experience with that first pregnancy is always on my mind this time of year - especially this year as I'm pregnant again.  So thanks - I love this wonderfully supportive blogging community and the friends I've made here!

While we're on the subject of babies, look at what I found at Costco, in a newborn size!


Yep, that's right!  Another girl!  I can't wait to start making baby quilts!  I already have 3 in mind!!

Maybe a sawtooth star with Tula Pink's Hushabye?  Or a coin quilt with Chez Moi's Swanky?  or a Pinwheel with something else as equally adorable - like that Amy Butler Love I won!?  Oh the possibilities...

You may have heard about a little storm we had here on the east coast.  We got 18" of snow in 24 hours at my house.  Not that unusual if I were still living in Utah, but I'm in Virginia!!  They are reporting this as the biggest storm in the DC area since 1922!  Crazy!

My kids loved it! Especially eating it.

 *****
It's kind of nice getting snowed in!  I had a lot of time to get some baking, cleaning and sewing done!  I got the Paisley Garden Mini Sig. finished!
 
I tweaked it a little from the last time, and I really like it!  It's a bit bigger and taller with a wider base. 
 
I put in a light green zipper and lined it with a bubble gum pink linen.  I really like the solid interior and printed pocket.
  
I finally got some new labels made with my awesome new printer (that actually will print on things other than regular copy paper!  Cardstock and Lollychops here I come!)  I used dear Penny's tutorial for making these. 


Here she is with her big sister - the Paisley Garden Signature bag.  And I think I like this print in a smaller dose....

I think I need to go make myself one of these little beauties right now!
*****
The mini-me dress is almost finished.  Church was cancelled Sunday, so I didn't rush to finish it.  She loves it - I just hope I will still be able to fit into mine by the end of the week!

Don't forget Natalia's Homespun Holidays show and tell!  I need to go link up!

Wow, that's some snow! I know it's a pain, but it sure is pretty - and kids love it. It's all too familiar to me in Ontario - so happy you all are blessed with it this time! Can't wait to see the mini-me dress, and the bag is so cute!

Congratulations on the baby flavor! Girl fabric is so much easier to find, dontcha think? :) And thanks for linking to those tutorials - I love the pinwheel one especially. You should do that one. You should do all three!

Natalia said...

Congatulations Amy! Another wee girl! My bestie (who is also due in May) is having a girl too! She just found out yesterday and after 2 boys is in shock!! I can't wait to make something in pink! Merry Christmas!

Dee said...

Congratulations! Having all blue here, I rejoice in pink when I can.
Stay warm, drink plenty of fluids (hot chocolate) and have a Merry, Merry Christmas!

Love to you and yours!

Laura said...

I am SO glad you are having a girl. Shopping for girl baby clothes is my weakness, fyi. :) And I love the pic of the three of you in the snow--so fun! I have REALLY missed snow since we moved to SD.

Hi Amy! Thanks for the visit... for ONCE my folks have/got more snow (in N VA- 25 min out of DC) than WE have/got!!! We ended up with only 4" (we were on the very edge of the storm)...

Still crocheting (although I should be wrapping)

Congrats on the PINK PRESENT!

Lala :o)

Hi Amy... Dale City/Woodbridge area... about 4 minutes from Potomac Mills Outlets!!! My oldest was born at Ft. Belvoir... is that your area?

It's snowing HERE... NW PA now... again...

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

That itty bitty outfit is adorable! Love baby clothes :) And your little bag is just right - love the solid lining too!

Amy your bags look so professional! Very nice work and super fab pics of you and the kids. So cute!

Whimsical Creations said...

yay! A girl!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the bag!!

Looks like so much fun in the snow. We hardly have any here. We got a dusting today.

Valerie said...

Yay and congrats on expecting a little girl! Fun, fun, fun, especially for people that sew. One of these days, I might need to get me a little girl because there are way too many cute patterns out there, and I don't think Henry would appreciate me trying them on him, haha...:)

Beautiful bag! Congrats on the baby girl :).
