Birds!

I finished my first set of birds today. Three of them (the second picture) are headed out tomorrow to my swap partners and in a few days I should get two more to add to the one that I've already gotten - I'll post a picture when I get all three. It's so fun getting mail!
I'm also really enjoying sewing little things like birds and I plan to make a little animal mobile for baby in the next few months. I'll have to practice quite a bit as I have high hopes to make lions, penguins, elephants and other such things which will probably prove a little trickier than birds.
Until then - here are the birds!

Oh, and a quick baby update: only about two months left. AH! I still haven't finished the blanket I started knitting (no surprise there) and I've got another shower this Sat. that I'm looking forward to0 because I'll get to see some old friends and relatives and hopefully get some more much needed baby items.
I also have to finish sanding the crib and changing table.
Getting those was really a miracle. I was so worried about buying furniture and spending money, etc. so I mentioned it in home group and what do you know, Kathleen (sorry I don't know how to spell it!) had them sitting in her parents attic. As she told me they were handed down to her by her sister but since she's not even dating anyone she would love for us to get use out of them. :)
They aren't the ones from Ikea I had my eye on but God provides what we need and I'm so grateful for that!
Have a fabulous week!
