Quiet


You may have noticed that it has been a little quiet over her lately. Part of that is because I have been very busy with Foxglo recently. Things had been pretty slow since my surgery and are now starting to pick up again. That coupled with all the responsibilities of being a wife and mother meant I had to cut down on something. Unfortunately, that meant this blog. 

I have loved posting so frequently this past year, but at a rate of (usually) 4 posts a week, I have gotten a little burnt out creatively. Sometimes you just need to step back, take a break and regroup. 

I'm not sure where this blog will be heading in the future so for now I'm just going to take it slow and focus on the family moments I want to enjoy and remember in the future. I hope you enjoy following along.

Oh and in case you are wondering, the above photo is from Ashland, MA when I was living there in 2011. This was one of my favorite spots to relax.

31/52 & 32/52


She hasn't used a pacifier since she was maybe 4 months old, but every now and again she picks one up to chew on it. I kind of love it because it makes her look so little when she is really getting so big. 


Loves brushing her hair and walking on tip-toes.

Quiltapalooza

I have my first craft fair coming up so I have been preparing for that as well as balancing custom Foxglo orders. I'm hoping to bring 5 quilts with me to the show since it is my first one and will likely be semi-small. Consequently I bought some fabric. It's going to be hard parting with these because I love all of these prints so much.

These fabrics are for a custom quilt order. We're doing grey and white chevron on the front with the coral dot fabric on the back and coral binding. It should look really cute when it's done. I love neutral quilt tops with a colored binding.

These prints are from the Wee Wander collection by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller. They are so good. I'm going to make a 60 degree triangle quilt with these. I love the playful prints in these cool tones.

Another set of Wee Wander prints. It was hard to narrow it down when choosing what I wanted. This will likely be a pinwheel quilt top with the fireflies are the backing. I love the firefly print, which is funny because I hate bugs. But I like them on fabric? We'll just go with it. 

I'll be sure to post progress pictures as I keep going on these! Wish me luck!

This may not be the best picture, but it's so accurate to her personality. A huge grin as she is handing me a toy to play with. In case you're wondering it is a little wind up chick that hops around; she got it from the office staff at my physical therapy office who were in love with her.
