2011 was clearly not a great year for this blog. I barely had any posts and, overall, that was pretty representative of the amount of quilting and sewing I accomplished. I did, however, accomplish one major thing that really has been the reason for such a huge lull.
This is the reason: I became a mom!
I found out I was pregnant in April and almost immediately was stricken with fatigue that barely let up my entire pregnancy. I had absolutely zero motivation to sew (or to do much else).
Towards the end of my pregnancy I began working pretty heavily on my father's quilt and I think the noise of my sewing machine was so noisy and startling to the baby the he kicked and squirmed almost the entire time I was sewing for the first couple times. Sad, right?
My son, Gavin, was born on December 17 and is now already 3 weeks old! Things have been going well and I feel so much better now that I am no longer pregnant! I have motivation to be crafty again- which is super exciting! I'm looking forward to settling into a routine with Gavin so I can start being creative again.
I did manage to accomplish a few things- like actually finish my dad's quilt! I'll be sharing those things with you here shortly. But in the meantime, here is some more cuteness.
