hellooooo belly!

big ol' baby belly, just about 30 weeks, and a sweet little 2.5 year old who wants to be picked up and carried all. the. time *sigh* lately i am beginning to question whether i can realistically get any bigger. of course i know that the answer is yes and the chances are quite likely. 10 more weeks of growing just seems like a whole lot...

spherically yours,

fungus obsessed

currently i am planning a whimsical woodland baby quilt collaboration with a group of my friends. how sweet is that?! i simply cannot wait to see the finished quilt, lovingly stitched by friends and family- and even better yet, the day i can wrap my new sweet babe in our wonderful creation. daydreams and discussions of said baby quilt resulted in a lengthy flickr browsing session where i viewed nearly every single mushroom project i could find. here are a few favorites. who knew a large dose of fungi could make one so happy?

and just like that...

snow!! in my my last post i mentioned that we were currently enjoying spring in january, but it was not to last. the very next day we got snow- beautiful wet, heavy, slushy snow! it was not much good for snowball throwing, or snow man building, or snow angel making but that did not stop us from bundling up and trying all of the previously mentioned snow day activities.

we stayed outside until we were soaking wet and freezing then retreated inside to drink copious amounts of hot herb tea.

recent winter temperatures also gave me the opportunity to wear my new leg warmers that seemed to take forever to knit! two glorified stockinette tubes = a super boring project, but i am really digging the fuzzy warm they are providing. and i have happily moved on to more exciting knits, so all is good!

warmly yours,
