We are officially five months into our wait for baby J. It’s been hard at times, worrying if we’re going with the right agency, if we should sign with two agencies at the same time, worried we’ll never be picked. I know it’s only been five months, but at times it seems like it’s been a lifetime.
I’ve finished up the “boy” quilt and it’s now washed and dried, folded up in the closet in the nursery. I have a few more projects (not related to the adoption) up my sleeve, so I’ll probably get started on those soon, something to keep my mind off the wait.
That’s about it, for now! Not much going on here…just waiting!
Recently I posted about my newest hobby, quilting. I can’t believe I have waited this long to try it, it’s so much fun! Plus, all the fabulous fabrics out there really allow you to make something special and completely unique.
This is the “boy” version of the quilt that I already posted, that we’ll use for the baby once we adopt. Since we’re not sure on sex, I’ve made a boy and a girl quilt, and then I can donate the one we don’t end up using. They’re both made from the Jelly Roll Jam quilt pattern from Fat Quarter Shop, and these quilts are a BLAST to make!
I haven’t had a chance to back this quilt yet, and do the machine quilting, but that is my plan for the weekend. I’m excited to get it finished, because I’ve already ordered more fabric for some holiday projects from Fat Quarter Shop, and really want to get started on them! Hopefully, in the next few months, I’ll be able to tell you all which quilt we’re using, which will be really exciting!!
Thanks for hanging in there with us during this journey. Your comments, prayers, and support are so appreciated.
