Work still progresses slowly but surely on Ready, Set, Snow. But now I've got a new deadline to meet: my friend B is having a baby boy in March, and I just received word her shower is January 28th!
B and I met through dance, and have been friends ever since. She introduced me to my husband, and was a bridesmaid at my wedding this past May. So clearly, I want my gift to her baby boy to be as special as it can be. She's shown me the bedding set she and her husband had selected - Lilly pads and frogs in blues and greens - and I have the perfect fabric to go with it:

Opportunity is a little short around my house these days, what with my sewing room being the living room and our lives a blur of holiday parties, shopping, and family visitations. But last Thursday - literally, the night before my Brother-in-Law came - I got my cleaning done early and was able to drag out my sewing machine for a few precious hours. This is the result!
