Cherry Blossoms and Baby Blanket WIP

I love how this vintage style hanging quilt is coming along! I got my hexagon templates in the mail along with the new fabric i ordered from the Sew Deerly Loved Store on Etsy. I wasn't originally planning on making it hexies and embroidered animals but the usual squares i do. However i really like making them and they are super easier than i thought they would be. Plus i can reuse the papers! woohoo!

My Pregnancy is around half way now and i am having a bad week of illness and was in the hospital this weekend with high fever. I have to take some medicine for a week. Ugh it was wierd, i never get really sick, but i have so much help at home i am so lucky, i don't know how moms do it alone when they are fighting illness and taking care of kids.

New Shoes for Xen from Popo.

Japanese Crepes and mango. Xen's fav breakfast!

The best part of my new home is the very old Cherry Blossom Trees lining the streets. Early this week they blossomed. I forgot how short they last because they are already all fallen down due to the rain.:(

All Good things...

I am so delighted with the final product of my cross stitch! It will hang on the wall in my sewing room:D
Next thing? Embroidery!
( i apologize for the blurryness ;P )

I have a long time love affair with the vintage baby animal motifs of the 1950's.
This is all stuff i just found off of the internet. I must say i am very much inspired
by the one Nanacompany did a while back. However i am thinking i will make mine a small quilt 
for a wall to hang above the crib.

Oh yeah. So i'm 5 months pregnant as well.

Surprise..although all my friends already know i guess it is time to officially announce it here.

We are having a baby girl! I am so happy to know the sex this time around so i can finally make some stuff beforehand that is ultra girly! Thus the Pink quilt and i also want to make a stroller/carseat blanket, 
a sleep sac..the goes on!!!

However the pregnancy is going swell..i am just about hitting the point now where getting up is officially a process but i am more bothered by the allergies that have hit me in the last 3 days.

Hope to show the WIP of these soon!
