I wanted to take a moment to share a super thoughtful gift from my mother-in-law (who is oh-so excited to be a grandma). Shortly after finding our that we were expecting she gave us this very precious gift - it was her baby quilt from 1952! As hubby was opening it, I think the first thing uttered from my mouth was "it looks so vintage!" And that is because it is.

My mother-in-law knows my little fascination with sewing from vintage patterns and she thought that this quilt would be something that I would appreciate. I must say that she is quite right and I especially love how it is gender-neutral, so boy or girl - it is going to work.
I'm trying to decide if I want to take the time to sew the bedding for our baby and use this quilt as inspiration. Hubby is convincing me that we should just register for bedding so I can use the time to sew maternity clothing for myself as well as clothing for the baby. He is so wise, I should probably listen to him - especially since I am just now finding the energy to think about sewing.
And just because I know that not everyone is excited to be inundated with baby posts, I'm only going to post baby things from time-time. I'm going to have more vintage knitting patterns to share and some fun giveaways too!
Live in this moment and love life!
