my creative space...

I've been on bed rest for the past few days, under strict orders from the husband. I must admit, I did get cabin fever & pop into the kitchen to cook dinner. I've just been so exhausted & worn out, I guess I needed to take a rest time. All those things that happen to you in the last weeks of pregnancy are taking their toll & even walking the few steps down the hall is a mission. I'm feeling alot better today, I'm clearly not going to take over the world... maybe just some washing & grocery shopping.
This whole bed rest thing has been good for the crafting, I must say. I've been very productive.
The ripple blanket is coming along at a cracking pace.
I've been stitching away at this little floor quilt too.
I purchased this cute vintage fabric a few years ago, knowing that one day it would be a quilt for my babe. The hand quilting is simply following the faux stitches printed in the design.
Simple & sweet, but oh so time consuming.
And finally, a sweet amigurumi lamb is slowly coming to life.
I haven't forgotten the story I promised to share on monday. I'll try & get a photograph today to share it with you soon.
Thanks Kirsty for hosting.

Kitty I am in love with your ripple afghan. I think I should get mine out of the unfinished basket and have another crack at it! Hope your delivery goes well.

My doctor order bed rest was the only reason I got poppys quilt finished before she was born too! Enjoy the time with your feet up now and stock up as much rest and you time as you can.
