Can't Kick the Cold

It's day 9 of one of the nastiest colds I've had in awhile. Titus is feeling better and acting better, but his nose still runs and his cough isn't completely gone. We're still "un-Gymboree" worthy at this point and had to miss our class again this week. I called to let them know we were still alive, since we've missed 4 weeks in a row due to snow and illness.

In the meantime, I'm keeping busy. Laundry needs to be done and there are lots of projects in my head. We are one step closer to redecorating Titus' nursery...we bought the paint last night and I'm planning to prime tonight. I'm a horrible mom because I've painted everyone else's nurseries, but my kid got the ugly cocoa color that was once my office. I'll show before and after pics when it's done.

Sewing has definitely been on the brain lately...
Our dining room table is in shambles, hiding under a pile of fabric scraps and plans.

These scraps are leftover from a camera strap I made as a birthday gift for a friend...I think they will make a cute patchwork lovey. I'm also still in need of a pincushion.

Here are the plans for my next quilt...the plan is to have it finished by March momma's b-day. She's turning the big 5-5 this year, so I want to give her something special. She has always said that she and my mamaw loved goldfinches, and her favorite colors are bright lemongrass greens and turquoise, so I think these fabrics by Heather Bailey and Alexander Henry will look great I need to decide on the quilt pattern!!

Here are some interesting sites for deciding quilt patterns and other sewing fun...

I love love Amy Butler fabrics. My sister is making Belle a pillowcase dress with some of her fabrics. I don't sew. I have too many other hobbies. =)

Great selection of fabrics for the quilt.
