This special guy made a trip to Denmark, in preparation of the arrival of my girlfriend’s new baby boy. The same girlfriend with the same due date as me who deserted me for Denmark. What’s so great about Denmark anyway? This monkey came with a little monkey onesie I made, but didn’t take a picture of. I had a lot of fun making him. I’ve never crafted a monkey before. I was really happy with how the tail came out. Usually I’m good about keeping a template of the pattern I used, but not this time. So he’s literally one-of-a-kind.
I only have six days left of work, which stupidly sounds like an eternity to me right now! A little more than three weeks left before the baby’s due to arrive. I am waddling around and feeling so tired and generally uncomfortable, but really nothing to complain about. I’ve had a model pregnancy and the baby seems to be very healthy, so I try and count my blessings–some days more successfully than others.
I made quite the headway on the baby quilt this week. I have 10 of the “plus” squares pieced and five to go. I decided I would have a reversible quilt, since I couldn’t decide on a pattern; I’ll have two! I’m doing the free form (like the beach blanket) on the back side of the quilt. Small quilts go so much more quickly than large ones!
