Last Friday hubby took a vacation day and off we went to Portland, OR to visit our very pregnant daughter and her husband. She has forbidden me to post any pictures of her, but suffice it to say, she is so beautifully expecting! She looks gorgeous. And, I got to feel and watch little Piper Alice move all around in her tummy. She is an active baby-just like her daddy. He never sits down, unless we're eating and then he pops up again, onto another project. I keep telling my daughter that she never has to worry about undone projects around the house, he's on them like flies on flypaper! LOL
Hubby and Daddy-to-be painted the babies room, ceiling and all. The ceiling is white and the walls are a beautiful shade of gray. Then they put the crib and dresser together. This was an all day project. Of course, dear daughter and I went shopping for curtain material at JoAnn's while they worked. We didn't find anything to our liking so all of us took a trip to IKEA after a lovely dinner out at Sweet Tomatoes. We found lots of goodies there, but no curtains. Finally, after a stop at Target we found some beautiful yellow ones that are room darkening and sound deafening. They match her colors exactly. Here are Grandpa and Daddy painting. They are such troopers, painting and assembling furniture all day and then shopping with us that evening.
This is a fountain that our son-in-law put in. If you remember, in an earlier post he gave us the little one they used to have because he was building this. It's beautiful at night, all lit up. The wiring will be buried eventually. He just finished the yard this past week and still has a few touch up things to complete.
I started a new project on Tuesday for our little one yet-to-be born. I had a dream last week that she needed a Christmas stocking since I made her mom and dad theirs the year they got married. So I was going to ask dear daughter if she wanted me to make one for the baby. She got a strange look on her face and said she had been thinking the same thing a few days before! Isn't that funny? I dreamt it and she thought it! She wanted the same colors as their stocking just a bit smaller. They're huge! You can see them on my project page on Ravelry if you're interested. Here's the start of Piper's.
Okay-I have to stop playing here and get down to business on the computer. Hubby is preaching Sunday night and I need to type up his sermon notes for him. I get a sneak preview!
Have a wonderfully fantastic week full of God's blessings!
