Almost there...

I can hardly believe it's already December! You know what that means, right?! Only a matter of weeks/days before Baby H arrives! CRAZY! Yesterday, my lovely friend, Kristin, threw me a fantastic baby shower, and we're now materially, if not mentally, prepared for the baby's arrival. Exciting times! 

Thanks to a fairly un-ambitious sewing to-do list last month, I have a couple of things finished and ready (or nearly ready) to add to the pile of beautiful baby clothes, blankets, and accessories given to us by our super generous friends and family. That includes Frankenblanket...

And two little throw pillows for the nursery...

Truth be told, I'm not sure how crazy I am about these pillows. They certainly don't seem to go together... the first is too busy for the second, which definitely seems to require some buttons or applique or something. But then, the rocking chair is really too small for both pillows together, so maybe it's no bad thing that they don't match. At any rate, they're going to stay the way they are for now, but maybe I can return to the second one at least later this month to add some finishing touches.

In the meantime, though, I'm not setting any goals for December, as I've got a pretty major project due to come to an end any day now! I've got a few Christmas presents on the go, but I'm keeping things relaxed (meaning people may or may not get presents!!) As usual, though, I'm linking up with Lily's Quilts' Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet
