So this is a little late…but on March 25th we welcomed a baby girl into our family.
She was born at 3am after a very speedy labour and an unexpected/unassisted home birth. We are so thrilled to have her around.
Not surprisingly she has been taking up a ton of my time, but I do have some sewing projects on the go.
First of all I signed up for a sewing buddy again this year over at Whipstich Fabrics which is such a wonderful program. My buddy and I are participating in the first challenge where we need to make a boy and girl item out of coordinating fabric. I’ll keep the project a surprise but I will tell you that my pattern and fabric arrived this week and I can’t wait to get started, I just need to pick up a few notions.
I’m also signing up for a hand sewing class through Stitched in Color, it hasn’t started yet but I’m really excited because I want to pick up some skills that I can practice while sitting on the couch for those days I just can’t make it to the sewing room. I’ve also been looking for a relaxing activity/hobby and I know hand stitching will fit the bill since I love hand stitching binding onto quilts so much.
Oh and I reallly need to finish up our daughter’s quilt. She won’t know that it wasn’t done when she was born right?
So that is what is going on around here! I’m so excited to be getting back into sewing after a break that was much too long.
