A baby on the way - bird mobile

A friend and his wife are expecting a baby ANY DAY now. Scary. He's been going a bit batty lately worrying about said incoming baby. I really shouldn't be giving advice to worrying parents to be.

J: I'm freaking out, the baby is due in a few weeks... I'm never going to get any sleep again...
S: Yeah... that's gonna suck big time... maybe you should get some extra sleep now cause it's gonna be done for once that baby gets here.
J: *blink* *blink*
S: Oh umm you were looking for sympathy huh... riiiggght it will be fine, I'm sure the baby will sleep buckets!

Yeahhh... note to self... keep baby advice to yourself! :)

Instead of giving more advice as a gift I decided to make this cute bird mobile instead! It's made up of small scraps of material left from other projects. I love how this came together.

Pattern from One Yard Wonders.

Tell your friend not to worry, babies actually need lots of sleep. The trick is getting yourself to sleep when they do. You'll be tired, but it's all good :)

Just found your blog thru batter splatters... I'm loving it!
