Big news...


I mentioned earlier in the week that we had big news brewing around here at Aesthetic Outburst. We're thrilled to report that PRH and I are expecting our second baby in October! I'm finally over the early-pregnancy blahs...all of my thesis bitching should make more sense now and hopefully I haven't scared too many readers away. Here's a sneak peek at Kicky's alphabet quilt that I've been working on. Don't worry, Kicky is just a temporary nickname for our future little typophile. The images below are: 1) the huge paper template/stencil 2) the quilt in its current state (still have to applique the letters) and 3) a black + white version of how the quilt will be arranged if all goes well (fingers crossed). Once I'm finished I'll be sure to post better photos. Is EZ E excited about the baby, you ask? Hell no. Maybe if the baby brings him new cars and trucks...hhmmmmm.

Yay, congratulations Abbey! So glad to hear that you're feeling better (I'm in the thick of 1st trimester ills myself). The quilt looks gorgeous, I hope you'll post more as it progresses :)

You realize that Kicky will grow up refusing to type in anything but made-for-windows95 "fonts" (the term 'typefaces' would be an insult), just to annoy you guys, right?

Get ready for Mother's/Father's Day cards exclusively in Times New Roman, Courier and Wingdings :D

Congrats, Abbey! Most peopel would say that having two is easier than having one.. and certainly easier if you've already got grad school out of the way!
