Some handwork to do

Well, we’re finally getting ready to go “meet” baby boy.   DD is being induced on Friday morning, after being 12 long days overdue.   Emma has a little cold, so hopefully she’ll be better by then so she can go to the hospital and see her new Baby Brodder.  During all this "waiting”, I have prepped some applique to have with me when I go back up for 2 weeks to help out after Daddy goes back to work.   Here’s a bit of what I’ve gotten done.

These are all ready to be hand stitched.  

The pattern is called Reminiscence and it’s by “The Rabbit Factory”.   There will be 12 blocks when I’m finished.  Here’s what I’ve done so far.  I’m using Moda’s Mistletoe Manor fabric.

Think good thoughts for a safe and pain free delivery.   I’ll let you all know the “stats” as soon he makes his debut!  Whoppeee!

This quilt is absolutely gorgeous. I've love the Mistletoe Manor line, but my quilt made from it is nothing compared to yours! Stunning.

Your new project is wonderful...hope you have more luck stitching than I did...by the time I quit at night I was too pooped. Have a very safe trip and we'll be waiting to hear all the stats and see that first picture.
