Boy, Oh Boy, I am blogging again!

I know it has been awhile but a lot has been going on! 
The biggest thing is - I AM PREGNANT and IT'S A BOY!!!

I am around 19 weeks pregnant and doing great. We decided to wait and tell everybody after we found out the gender (immediate family knew mths ago). Since I am of "mature maternal age", in my late 30's, I have been considered a high risk pregnancy and we wanted to wait until all my screening work was done to make the official announcement. Everything has been great so far and the little one is looking healthy. I am due sometime around late March/early April and we couldn't be more excited.


We already have a name - Kellen Grey Woolf. The name Kellen came from a dear family friend who had a son named Kellen that past away when he was young. We are very happy that she has given us the permission to use this beautiful name. I can't wait until we get to meet him.

Of course now that I know what I am having the quilt ideas have been swirling around. I know I am going to do something with blues and greens.  And probably have some sort of a underwater theme.

But first I have to get through Christmas!

Even though I have been pregnant I have still been sewing - just not much. I did have the lovely morning, noon and night sickness and lot's of fatigue. 
I did get one baby quilt made. I did a gender neutral (since I didn't know he would be a boy) quilt using the Castle Peeps line. Its quilted and the binding is ready to sew on!

The pattern is from this wonderful tutorial by Jeni at In Color Order. I am so excited that Jeni is going to be apart of my online quilting bee next year. Check out her blog. She makes some beautiful things.

And on my design wall now is the start of a Christmas present for a member of my family!

Everybody keeps asking me to post photos of myself and my baby bump. Maybe I will do that soon!
Its good to be back blogging!

Happy Sewing
