A Little Loominous

When we found out that baby #3 was a boy I immediately set out to find the perfect fabric for his quilt. Boy fabric is tricky to me. I could spend millions on all of the pretty florals out there but I’m just not that into a lot of what’s offered up for boys. But when I saw Anna Maria Horner’s Loominous collection I knew I’d found a winner.

Aren’t these patterns yummy?! And those colors? Gaaaa! šŸ˜

I had originally planned on using a random half square design, but once I got all of the blocks sewn and up on my design wall it all just looked too messy for my liking. After moving the blocks around in a few different designs and with some help from my good friend Jennifer I finally settled on a design. Unfortunately some of the fabrics I purchased didn’t make it into the final quilt, but I’m sure I’ll find good use for them in another project.

What do you think?

I’m loving it.
Here’s an in process shot.

Taken after Jennifer helped with the design and obviously before I cleaned my house.

I think he likes it.

New Addition

I have to admit that I haven’t done as much sewing as I wanted this past year, but we’ve been a little busy.

We welcomed brother #3, who we lovingly refer to as ‘Coons Loons’, to the family in October. Big Brother started calling him that while I was pregnant so Coons it is.

image

He’s pretty darn cute so we decided to keep him.

And his big brothers adore him.
When Big Brother met him for the first time he said, “He’s so sweet. His feet are pruney.”

image

Here he is perfecting the ‘mean mug’.

I couldnt help but make a side by side of newborn pics of all three boys. Can you tell who’s who?

image

He doesn’t look much like his big Bros now though. He’s definitely got his own look.

image

And I finally got a good shot of the whole family on Mother’s Day.

image

And just for fun I thought I’d throw in this year’s Halloween costumes.

Aren’t they ridiculously cute?! Big Brother loved trick or treating while The Hoss basically played the iPhone in his stroller and tried to take his mane off. But we got these adorable pics so it was well worth it.

I did manage to sew a couple of quilts in the past 9 months. Hopefully pics will be up soon.
