Where I've Been

I just returned home from a glorious weekend of sewing. It's more sewing than I've been able to do in months. And there have been some good reasons for that. In the Spring I started doing some commission work for Spring Market, which kept me busy but I wasn't able to share my projects here. Then shortly after, I jetted off to Europe for a month for a friend's wedding in Paris. My husband couldn't take a lot of time off work, so we spent ten days in Italy and a night in Amsterdam before he had to fly back home. Then I continued on to Paris, then London on my own before my journey ended.

The whole time we were in Italy I was feeling sick and completely wiped out with exhaustion, which is odd. Well, we discovered in Rome that there was a reason for the way I was feeling. Which is also the reason I haven't been able to blog at all in the past few months. We're pregnant. And when I got home we got the next shocker. We're having twins. So I have been really sick for the past couple months and have not had the stamina or energy to sew anything but a few commission pieces. Finally the fog passed about two weeks ago so I am getting back into the groove, slowly. I plan to do as much sewing as I possibly can for the next few months, or until I get too big to reach the machine. I need to get it all in and fast, as our entire world is about to change.

So I appreciate you sticking around while I was away! And I'm glad to be back. Now, it's back to sewing!

  5. You should check out my friend Amy's blog, and go way back. She blogs at www.stitcherydickorydock.com, and she had twin boys a year ago. Her older daughters are exactly the same age as my girls, so she's got a 5, a 3, and twin boys almost a year old. She was sewing up until they boys were born...even converted her hospital room (bed rest) into a sewing studio! :)

    I'm happy for you, Hollie. And know that you'll figure things out sooner rather than later. :)
