The Cog and Wheel: Complete!

And just to show that there's no need for concern from my last post, here's the Cog and Wheel.
Did I sound depressed or something in my last post?  My dad called this morning to make sure I was okay after reading it so maybe I did?  Unintentional I assure you.  The truth is I'm 7 weeks pregnant and feeling a serious case of the blahs.  This happened with my last two pregnancies.  The first trimester it seems all my creative energy gets poured into my uterus instead of my sewing machine.

Never fear, it passes along with the first trimester.


 Here she is!  Complete and all quilted up and ready for snuggling sweet little ones in.

I love how bright and cheery it turned out.  The yellow felt a little risky but in the end, I really like it.

And while we're here, let me take a moment to draw your attention to the book on my nightstand

This one.  Its called 31 Dates in 31 Days and it was written by a friend of mine from my NYC days.

Check it out here on Amazon.  Its fantastic, a true story and will leave you feeling like you just spent time with your best girlfriend in some great girl talk.

And here she sits in her new official spot in the playroom.  She's the snuggle with mama on the rocker and read quilt.

We're all quite glad she's finally done!

Today I'm linking up with:

  1. Congratulations on your pregnancy! I didn't do much sewing during the first trimester with both of mine, either. I hope you are feeling well!

  2. That is some great news! Love your quilt! The yellow is a lovely neutral.

  3. OH! OH! OH! Your quilt is FABULOUS!!! I'm crazy over the fabrics you used! I have pulled some fabrics for mine but that is as far as I have gotten. Lots of other quilty 'irons' in the fire for me, but I may just have to stop and put everything else on hold and get started on MY cog and wheel. Yours is such an inspiration to me!

    Congrats on being preggers too!!!

  4. wait, what?? You're pregnant!!!!???? That is great. Wow do I feel behind. Your oldest is younger than my baby! oh well, someday maybe. Hope you're feeling ok. Congrats!!!

  5. Thanks for all the well wishes!

  6. I love it. I never would have been brave enough to do the yellow - but am really pleased with how it turned out. You inspire me to take more risks with fabric!

    Curious how the quilting works at the shop you mentioned. Did you have to pay for a training and then pay by the hour for the time on the long-arm? Or do you pay someone else to operate the long arm?

  7. Congratulations! Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous. Oh, I meant congratulations on the baby, but congratulations on the quilt too!
