It has been nearly two years since I have parented two children full time for any stretch of days. For the last 7 days I have had both of my girls all day. Guys, this parenting stuff is exhausting! I love my kids but they sure do make making any sort of plans near to impossible! And my sewing/blogging/creating time has suffered monstrously.
In addition, on Monday morning Nolan's Mom texted me that she was having pre labour contractions! He wasn't expected until August so I quickly changed my morning plans to help her run a few errands and keep her company while her husband tied up some loose ends at work. Of course, this also upped the urgency for finishing his quilt. I know she wouldn't mind if it was a little later but I love bringing along a little something when I get my first baby snuggles!
I've been quilting up a storm while my friend laboured. And laboured. And then laboured some more. Just minutes ago I got the message that Nolan has finally made his appearance. Yep, you read that right. 55 hours of labour! Poor mama!!
I think just a few more hours and this will be ready to go home with it's new owner. But I need your help! I've been planning on quilting the green tooth all along but as I took this picture I kind of like that the puffiness makes it stand out a little more. What do you think?
