a little update


Thanks so much for all your congratulations! Things are going well here – lots of time spent snuggling with Hazel, and adjusting to having 2 kids! Needless to say, it’s been a bit tiring! I’ve been using any free moments to snag myself a nap (or shower!).

If you’ve been following along with Kathy’s fun “Where I sew” series, you may have seen a photo of my sewing space, which is right in the middle of our living area. So I’ve spent a lot of time looking at my sewing table, and the projects I left out before Hazel was born, but no time behind the sewing machine. Soon enough, I’m sure!


Though that hasn’t stopped me from making a few fabric purchases (when I can’t sew, I tend to buy fabrics instead!). This great stack is Squared Elements by Art Gallery, which I picked up from Hawthorne Threads.


But that stack will have to wait — back to snuggling with this little one!

    I can almost smell that new baby smell from here! Give her a big smoochy kiss for me. I’m glad your getting your naps in. I hope the weather is not causing you any problems.

    Hi Ashley – Congratulations on your beautiful little one. Have you yet wondered how you ever thought life with ONE kid was hard? I have two kids under the age of three – my oldest just turned two and the youngest is almost seven months. It was a challenging couple of months but it has definitely gotten easier and I finally am starting to feel a little normal again. It helps when they start sleeping at night! Good luck!

    P.S. I love the name Hazel. If our second had been a girl, that is what we would have named her!

    so precious! i’m sure the sewing groove will come to you eventually – i’m still waiting for mine 7 weeks later!!! adjusting from 1-2 was the hardest for me…after that it doesn’t really make a difference how many extra are around! keep resting πŸ™‚

    You have the cutest babies! I recall your little boy was absolutely adorable when he was born–and this little girl is such a sweetheart! When I look back at my life, I think my children were the hardest thing I ever did–but also the very best. Enjoy. It goes by way too fast!

    Congratulations from over here! Enjoy the time, it goes by so fast. And yes, it’s so tiring and no time for yourself. But that will change a little.
