Made Things :: Nesting?

If nesting is supposed to immediately precede labor, then no, I'm not nesting.  Because apparently, this baby is not planning on being born any time soon.  But all the same, I've had some time on my hands, and as a result, I've been making things.  Lots of things.  Here's some sneak peeks!

I wanted a bright, colorful purse to make it feel more spring-y!
These was the perfect color combo to fix my winter blues.
Next up, a bright little clutch for keeping my things separate from baby's.
Of course, I was anticipating needing room for baby things by now, but let's try not to dwell...

I made two boppy covers.
The one on the left, didn't turn out quite as well as the one on the right.
Practice makes perfect.

A little diaper clutch for baby M.
Room for a waterproof changing pad, some diapers, and a wipes container.

Things got really dicey last week, so I made a baby quilt.
It's backed with a terry cloth fabric.
So soft!

These little onesies are for when we find out if Baby M is a "he" or a "she"
They turned out just like I had hoped!

Finally, I'm trying really hard to make some sort of mobile.
This is a piece of it.
I'm not in love, so it's slow going.
Perhaps I'll try some more today.
So that's what I've done so far.  This baby really needs to show up before I re-upholster a couch or cover the trees in our front yard with fabric ornaments or hang draperies in the shed.  I admit, it is a little bit out of control, but I'm at my wit's end with what to do.  Although it feels like there's something I should be doing to make this labor happen, I've been told over and over that we're just waiting on the kiddo to decide for itself. 

And so we wait.  And wait.  And wait... ;)
