It has been much much much too long since I’ve blogged, but I have an exciting reason for being away… I’m pregnant!
This is an announcement I made that got vetoed. But since this is my blog, I thought I’d share it here 🙂
Apparently pregnancy is really hard and I’ve been on the couch for the last 3ish months. It was a strange thing to be so engrossed in quilting and then one day just be totally unable to do it or even think about it. It’s been so hard to be away from all of you awesome quilting peeps! Luckily, I’m back on my feet and ready to slowly get back into it. I have my barn door finish to show you later this week and I’ve made quite a bit of progress on my picnic quilt lately. I’m so excited to start following along with all of your projects again as well!
I’m not going to post much about my pregnancy here, but there will most likely be a baby quilt in the works when we find out the gender next month. 🙂
And what’s a post without a quilty pic… Here’s a sneak peek of the barn door. Full post coming soon!

Wahoo!!! I’m so excited for you! This is such awesome news 🙂
So glad you’re feeling better and getting back into the swing of things.
Looking forward to seeing your finished barn door quilt, your sneak peak is gorgeous! As well as seeing more of your picnic quilt. Your IG pics of your progress are fantastic!
Congrats!! And take it easy 😉
Thank you so much for the sweet note! It’s definitely been a wild last few months 🙂 I’ve totally missed out on your blog posts (but I saved them to go back and read!) but I’ve really enjoyed following your insta-progress on IG as well. So much faster than blogging huh! I hope you are having a great start to your week!
I have been away from the blogging world for a couple of months. I am trying to catch up on everyone’s blogs, but it is taking a while. I checked on yours about a week ago and saw that you hadn’t even posted on your blog since last time I checked. I was just about to email you today to see if everything was OK, but then I saw this post and saw that everything is more than OK!
From what I remember of pregnancy, I was exhausted all the time. I got barely anything done that I intended to. Then, in the early months of having a new born, I got absolutely nothing done that I intended to 🙂
Best of luck keeping crafty, but don’t push yourself. We’ll all still be here when you have something to share.
Thank you! I have been away too, so I know the feeling of being behind on everyone’s blogs. That was so nice of you to think of checking in on me! You are totally right, I am exhausted all of the time. But I do have about 2 hours a day where I’m less tired, so I’m trying to fill it with sewing at least a couple times a week. I hope I’m able to keep that up, but I’m not going to push it 🙂 I hope things have been going well for you outside blog land!
Oh, that’s lovely news! Take it easy and look after yourself.
Thank you for your kind words, Fran! 🙂

Congratulations! I spent all nine months of all three of my pregnancies completely exhausted. Growing a baby is hard work! Hope all goes well and I’ll look forward to seeing pictures of the new little one when the time comes.
Thanks so much Leanne! I never realized how exhausting it is growing a baby. I don’t know how anyone gets anything done! But I’m trying to take it day by day and enjoy the short bursts of energy when they do come 🙂

Wonderful, wonderful news and I’m so pleased you are beginning to feel a little more like yourself. Your pregnancy announcement made me smile. Off to take a good look at your Barn Door finish….
Thanks Karen 🙂 It is so nice to be back to my “normal” self again. Were you sick with your kids?
Karen @ Pieces of Contentment says
Thankfully not. I felt a little off colour, especially through the first few months and my taste for food changed a bit. My main struggles were constant fatigue and in my last four pregnancies, increasing difficulty with varicose veins, making standing and walking painful.
I knew something was different when expecting our twins for I was absolutely fatigued. We found out very early that it was twins.
Glad to hear you weren’t very sick, but that vericose veins issue sounds very unpleasant to say the least! That’s really interesting that you could tell something was different when you were more tired. I bet it does take extra energy to make 2 at once 🙂
Congratulations! This is the best kind of news! (And with a yummy quilt too?) I start my third trimester today, and I’m busy working on his baby quilt. It’s so exciting. I hope everything goes smoothly and safely! Hooray!
Oh my gosh, how did I miss you were pregnant?!? Congrats!!! How have you been feeling? I’m so excited to see your baby quilt, I’ll definitely be following along better now that I’m out of hibernation 🙂

How exciting for you! Congratulations. I’m glad you are feeling better. 🙂
Thanks so much Carole! It is so nice to be feeling a little bit of energy again 🙂
That is such exciting news! Congratulations!! I was bummed you hadn’t been in the blogosphere lately, but this makes so much perfect sense. I’m glad you’re back.
Thanks so much Kelsey! I really missed following along with your work! So glad to be back! 🙂
