Willow and I are sick.
All she wants to do is eat popsicles.
We don't have any popsicles.
I happen to look like death, so I doubt we'll be venturing out for popsicles any time soon.
We just have some pretty bad cough/cold situations.
Thank goodness we don't have the flu.
That would be way crappier.
Oh, and I sound like a 80-year-old woman who's been smoking since her teens.
And, Willow keeps tricking me.
I think she's coming in for a hug, some nice momma-lovin' with her said little sickie-face...
and then she just uses me as a snot rag.
I've gone through several shirts today.
Despite the sickies, I've got some fun things to share.
These cute little pants for my soon-to-be nephew, Cash:
Aren't they so much fun?
And each pair is reversible... so it's like she got 8 pairs of pants instead of 4!
I can't wait to make them in little girly colors for my lovie...
I used the Quick Change Trousers pattern from AMH's Handmade Beginnings book.
Let me tell you... SO EASY!
I didn't plan on making so many pairs, but I did.
That's how easy/quick/fun they are to make.
And then I made little onesies to match all of them:
I don't have the best pictures, I know.
I was in a crazy hurry to send these to Texas in time for my sister's shower.
I had to harass her for a week for an address...
and then when I finally got it from her, she gave me the wrong zip so the box didn't even get there in time :(
I was bummed.
I'm missing my sister... ever have those days?
Especially right now, because we're both preggers... due less than 4 weeks apart.
Which would be totally fun IF one of us didn't live in Texas and the other in Michigan.
And, since our due dates are so close, I can't be there for Baby Cash's delivery, she can't be here for mine.
I'm totally jealous of my mom.
She's going to Texas for 2 weeks.
She gets to be there.
Yup, I'm gonna whine about because I want to and I'm sick so I can.
Ok, on with it.
I've also got this little pillow cover to share:
It's actually on its way to Rachel of p.s. i quilt as we speak...
She needed one.
It's similar to the Happy Pillow I made earlier this year.
Rachel's on the left, Happy Pillow on the right
And, I added some hand-stitching like I did on the Happy Pillow as well.
I'm slightly addicted to hand-quilting these days.
And I must say, practice does make perfect.
Not that my stitches are perfect... just saying I definitely see a difference from my first projects.
If anyone is looking into trying out hand-quilting, I suggest checking this out.
It's oh-so-helpful and Anna Maria Horner is the bomb, obviously.
I seem to be finding other things to hand-quilt instead of my big huge projects that I should be working on... namely the girls' quilts.
I need to get on those.
Time is running out.
Oh, other fun news!
Go check out all the other super-cool quilts, there's LOTS!

I think that's about all for today...
