Hello? Hello?

Is anyone out there?

My little girl is four weeks old today (isn't she cute?!). Crazy how fast time flies.


I've been able to have two sewing sessions since she was born. For some reason, I thought having time off work for maternity leave would allow me to have all this time to sew in between feedings. Yeah, right - what was I thinking?

Last week I made a quilt back, which is not my favorite sewing project to work on. I'd much rather just use a flat sheet or something. For some reason it makes me a little crazy trying to figure out how to cut yards of fabric and sew the pieces back together to make a quilt back the right size. But, I've made a goal to finish all the quilt tops I have in progress before starting anything new. I've got one down and have at least four more to go. Since it's getting to be a little cooler around these parts, having more finished quilts for the winter sounds like a good idea.

Today's sewing time was spent making a Dutch pinwheel block for AnneMarie for the Sew Beautiful Bee. September was AnneMarie's month and although I had good intentions to finish it during that month, I just didn't get my act together.

My mom-in-law is taking my older two kids tomorrow so I can have some solo mom and baby time. I hope to work on Katie's Christmas block for October so I can cross it off my list. She put together such a great gallery of Christmas blocks that I'm excited to come up with something for her.
