found him riding his bike...

excuse me while i grow a human being...

yes, i'm pregnant for the third time around.

so far it has involved:

throwing up
feeling guilty for being a lousy mother
throwing up some more

repeat this list 4+ times a day

regardless, i am ecstatic. my "morning sickness" is slowly subsiding and i see the light at the end of the tunnel. i should be back to regular blogging soon, but until then please excuse my absence while i literally grow a human inside of me. miraculous!!!! every. time.

mellow yellow lemons

i started this quilt while david was in bootcamp
and finished it just before christmas.
it's so not my style at all, but i'm in love nevertheless. the fabrics are a mix of vintage sheets from the thrift store, to traditional quilt store fabrics to alexander henry. i love the mix. it's a pretty huge quilt and of course i had to bind it in polka dots.

*sorry for the lousy pictures.*

the chair

so i bought this chair YEARS ago and it has been moved from garage to garage to garage.
i think i paid 10 bucks for it at a garage sale. ugly. green. leather.
it took me so many motivational speeches to myself to get it done.
pulling staples out of wood with plyers to rip of gross leather is no fun...


however, stapling cute fabric to wood is:

it was hard work and i'm not completely satisfied with my end result, but it works.
and it was quite the learning experience.
my fabric was really clearance and i want to add a pink pillow instead of the orange.


my advice? don't try this unless your ready for a 3 year long headache!
that is, if your a procrastinator like me:)
