Finally Decided...

I finally decided what to start next - Blackbird Designs Quaker Garden - Loose Feather #19. Karen from My Favourite Things is coordinating a SAL starting in July. I decided to start a little early because I'd like to finish before the baby comes. Here's some pictures of my progress...

Close up of my progress.

I'm enjoying it so far! I love the linen the color and the feel - it's so nice.

My dh has to go back to Florida July 1st to take a polygraph test for the job he interviewed for. So I only work this Saturday and then my maternity leave starts. I'm so glad! I think we've finally decided on a name - Matthew Walter. Matthew because we both like it and Walter after dh's grandpa. He's being very active right now... wiggling and pushing on my ribs. He needs more room - I'm ready to give it to him whenever he's ready! :)
