1. Sewing is happening regularly again, although in five minute increments here and there.
I sewed up some drawstring bags (free tutorial from Jeni at In Color Order) for Avery and her friends when they took a knitting class last weekend.
And just today I finished my Sidekick Tote (pattern by Anna of Noodlehead). It's made of a black chambray, mustard Echino dots, and a favorite Anna Maria Horner LouLouthi print.
I won't lie-- I wish I had more time to make things. Between school runs with Avery and Claire, keeping Cooper out of mischief, and needing to hold Charlotte pretty much all day, I have very few free moments.
2. At 2 months old, Charlotte is sleeping 9-10 hours straight at night. If you have an infant who is not doing this, please don't hate me. Cooper woke up every 2 hours for over a year. Claire did too. When other people would say that their breastfed babies were sleeping through the night this young, I thought they were lying. But I guess miracles do happen! So this time around I'm grateful for the sleep.
3. I was able to sign up to go to QuiltCon in February! I'm registered for textile printing classes with Lizzy House and Lotta Jansdotter and a freezer paper piecing class with Penny! I'm so psyched and looking forward to meeting so many online friends in person. I was worried about what I would do with Charlotte while we're there, but my mom decided she wants to fly down with me to watch her! My ever-wonderful mother-in-law will be helping Rob with the kids back home. I'm so thankful to have family who is so supportive of my hobbies. I'm a lucky duck.
Have a great weekend! We're expecting snow. Snow! But I won't go into that, because this is supposed to be a positive post after all...
