I know it's only February but here in LA we've been enjoying summer weather. Better than summer weather! Last week the beach was amazing and just yesterday I was at the park, happily working on the doll quilt when my kids complained it was too hot and wanted to go home. That custom order doll quilt, by the way, is all finished. (Remember Justine, I won't be sad if you don't like it!)
I've always wanted to do blocks on point and this is my very first time. Pretty cute, eh? I'd love to do a much larger version some day. This one is meant for an actual doll bed and measures about 18" x 14". It is backed with pink polka dots.
And I have another project in the works. Remember the postcard inspiration? Here's a sneak peek of mine...
This weekend I have lots of plans... to finish the above thingy, spend some time at the beach, a bit of furniture restoration on an old Pottery Barn dresser we got off Craig's list, and a trip to the library. We'll see what I actually get done ~ ha!
And, thank you so much for the congratulations, continued prayers and good baby girl vibes! Now, we have to get serious about deciding on a name, which isn't so easy this time around. Olivia wants us to name her Barbie. Her second choice is Sally. My husband quipped that we could call her, "the girl whose name must not be mentioned" (yes, we watch a lot of Harry Potter). Grandma likes the name Sophia. I don't know (I'm woefully shaking my head). I'd love to hear some of your favorite girl names. Seriously, throw some at me.
And have a great weekend!
