A very happy Monday to all!!
I've been absent without any explanation, I know, but hopefully you all know by now that I have an excuse. We learned last week that we are having a BOY, and I'm still in shock! I really thought it was a girl! He's an energetic little boy, too... he kicks his mother non-stop (especially at night.)
Anyways, I thought it was about time I shared the fabric I'll be using for my son's quilt, since I think I promised to show you over a month ago. We picked this before we knew what our baby would be, but because I had in the back of my mind that it was a girl, we also selected ribbons to go with the fabric. Which I will not be using now.
The large fabric is extremely soft fleece, and this will be the back of the quilt. I think I need at least one more fabric for the front - perhaps a brown, perhaps a tan. Definitely not more polka dots; even though we tried to pick unisex fabric, it now looks somewhat feminine to me. Darn it.
I also have a quilt pattern to share, which I made a few weeks ago for a good friend, but first I have to put it into a format that can be easily downloaded.
In the meantime, I hope everyone has a lovely week!

I love the time of year when things start blossoming. It makes my energy level blossom, too, and I start to look forward to the months ahead: months of long evenings, warm days, cooking out, and flip flops. Delicious.
Some of my favorite blogs have been posting about cherry blossoms lately, and I just stare and stare at their photographs until I can imagine myself in them. Where I live, you might see the occasional cherry tree, but I love that some places are just covered in blossoms this time of year.
Here are some for you to vicariously enjoy, too.

What a delightful time to celebrate new life! I hope you all have a lovely Easter.
