This is not the best photo in the world, but you get the general idea anyway. It's so hard to take photos of my quilts due to lack of a large enough space with good lighting. I decided to take some time out from baby sewing to do a bit of quilting again. Aaaah, it's nice to be working with some color. I got the pattern and fabric for this quilt at Material Obsession when we took our trip up to Sydney a little while back. The pattern is called Fanciful Flowers and it is one that is in their new book--although I only had a paper copy. The fabric line I used is called Katie Jump Rope by Denyse Schmidt with a little of her Flea Market Fancy line in there as well. I did add the final border to it because I really liked the blue flower fabric.
I finally sent off a couple of tops to the long armer as I don't quite know when I will be delving into buying a machine and starting my own long arming business at this point. The week I decided I was definitely going to go ahead with it was the same week I found out I was pregnant! So, I decided that maybe I would "wait and see" instead. It will be a real treat though to get a few quilts back and finish them off so they can start being used!
Talking about the baby, I can't remember now if I mentioned before that the baby was sitting Frank Breech when I had an ultrasound done at 32 weeks. Everytime since that time when I went to the doctor or midwife they couldn't tell me for sure if it had turned or not either. I tried everything I could to get it to turn--being upside down, playing music, light, acupuncture-moxabustion, chiropractor using the Webster technique and whatever else anyone told me might work. In the end I suspect that it may have been the chiropractor on the second visit that might have caused the baby to turn. The reason I think so is that after the second visit I felt very different to what I had been feeling previously although I couldn't say what in the world felt different. Maybe that it was easier to walk and move around suddenly. Still, I just got the official word from the ultrasound yesterday that the head is down and so I can sigh a breath of relief! The doctor was going to recommend sending me up to Canberra this week to do a manual version if it hadn't turned which we really didn't want to have to do. And I Really don't want to deliver by Cesarian either if I can help it either!
I am really getting excited now, I can't believe in a few short weeks we will have our baby! Life will never be the same again. It's all a bit scary really, but hopefully it will all be worth it. If not, too late now!
