HELLO!

Hi there! I'm alive! Sorry for the ridiculously long blog break. Lots going on around here and I just seemed to lose my blogging voice in the middle of it all. Then once I was gone for so long, it was hard to really get back into it. But hopefully I'm back. I have lots to share!

First of all - our big news - we are expecting a new baby at our house! And it's a boy! I am due August 10th. We are all very excited.

So, on to the crafting!! I finally made it into my craft room on Monday. I threw open the windows and pulled out some fun springy fabric (vintage pillowcases) to make a small tote for Sydney. She has been crazy about drawing pictures lately, mostly nature inspired things like birds, bugs, trees, etc. So I decided to make a little tote to carry some colored pencils and a drawing notebook with us on trips to the park, the lake, or just the backyard. She loved the idea and the fabric, and insisted on a pocket on the front.

Hi there and congratulations! I'm on an extended leave myself. Hard to find time with these two kids. Do you mind telling me what that drawing book is called? I'm always on the look out for some good ones.

I had a feeling! When I leave for a long time it's usually for the same sort of reasons.

So exciting!

So good to have you back. That little girl is getting so big but I guess that's what BIG sisters need to be. Congratulations on your exciting news!!! Let the knitting/crocheting/sewing for baby begin.
