The babies are scheduled to be here in 4 days!!! That's soon, don't ya think? In preparation, I have done a little sewing and LOTS of cleaning. We are also working hard on our budget and getting business stuff in order.
Here are some pics of a few things I have made.

I thought this apron was super cute. Apparently, Halley did not! Here are the directions for this super easy-to-make apron. I taught my friend Nicole how to make one for her daughter, Kaiya.

I made this quilt for Max. I took it to be embroidered and will pick it up today. I also did one for Mariah, but I did not take a picture of it yet.

This is a "hooter hider" aka nursing cover up. You can learn to do anything on the internet. Here are the directions for this item. I changed a few things to make mine a bit nicer. I sewed two fabrics together to make it a little thicker, added a decorative stitch to the outside, and put on a pocket as suggested. I saw this same cover up here on sale for $19.95. Maybe I will go into business making these!

I taught myself how to crochet when I was pregnant with Halley. She has a nice sized blanket now. I decided to do one for the twins. So far, only Max's is done! I learned how to do this "granny square" on the internet. Click here, to learn to do one yourself. I do have one for Mariah, but it looks more like a cape than a blanket! Oops. I am going to start over using this same pattern that I used for Max. My goal is to get hers done in time so that they can come home from the hospital with them. I would love to have them as a keepsake to pass on to their firstborn.

I just went in the nursery and noticed that I need 2 curtains for it. My plan was to make them, but I think I will have to purchase them...time is of the essence. I also need to get something to put on the wall over their cribs. So much to do, so little time.

I have my last MD appointment as a pregnant lady at 815 this morning! If all goes well, we will have the babies Friday. I'm so excited, I can hardly contain myself! When I get done with that, I have lots phone calls to make and a few errands to run. I have to get it all done now, because by Friday I will be milk distribution center ONLY! Well, not only...I still have responsibilities as a wife, mother, domestic engineer, accountant, delegator, friend, daughter, sister, organizer, etc, etc, etc!!!
