Projects done. Baby can come now.

Any time now - according to the doctor.

So, I am very happy that all the necessary knitting and sewing are done. Off the needles are this cute little dress and a stroller suit.




The dress was a pattern found here and the gorgeous yarn came from my LYS here in Peterborough, Needles in the Hay. The stroller suit was also from the same store, from a kit from Fleece Artist, whose yarns I love. But this pattern was not my favourite. Very vague instructions  - and very small!!! I did the larger size, but think it will truly be newborn size. (Note to self: read all comments on ravelry before embarking on a pattern.)

Anyway, they are washed and blocked and ready to go.

So the next project was the "big brother Spiderman quilt". I bought the panel and the other Spidey fabric online and then went to my Fabricland for the red fabric and the backing. Most of the panel was quilted on my machine, but then I had some fun hooking by hand. Some small areas on the panel and the eyes on the upper and lower print panel. It is also washed and ready to go.





Now we wait. Daughter is more than past ready to have the little one here, but as the doctor said, "she could come any time." So our ears are on alert for the late night call and we will zoom to TO and stay with Jackson until his sister arrives.

Maybe tonight.......

Winging it.
