Introducing the reason I’ve been away…
Hello, everyone! As you can see I have been taking an extended absence from blogging…part of this was due to having a new baby and part of it was working hard on our church’s VBS so I could get away to actually have my new baby. 🙂 In order to ease back into this blogging thing I thought I would show you a bit of what I’ve been up to since I’ve been away.
So, I would love to introduce my newest little muse…Miriam!
So far she has been a very sweet baby. She is a good eater and actually a good sleeper. (If I had been blogging while my first two were little ones you would know what a big deal this last thing is!)
Her funny thing is yawning…she is a HUGE yawner.
She is already one month old! I can’t believe it! Although, it already seems like she has always been with us.
Dinah and Esther are completely in love with her. They are both great big sisters and like to be as “helpful” as they can.
As you can see, my last post was about the Chevron Circle Skirts. As I got closer to my due date I decided that I should make some Big Sister/Little Sister shirts for the girls. I had plenty of scraps left from the chevron fabric and I used that to make these shirts. I also had lots of bias strips left as well, so I made a little yellow skirt for Miriam and edged the hem with the bias tape.
That’s about all the sewing I have done in awhile. VBS is always a TON of work and usually takes up all my creative mojo for the months leading up to it. I am taking a maternity sabbatical right now and I’ve been working on some hand embroidery projects that have been languishing for about as long as the blog has been. Hopefully they will be finished soon and I’ll be able to share them.
Oh, and I wanted to share some pics of Miriam in this sweet lady bug hat that my sister made. Too cute!
Thanks to those of you who stuck around during my hiatus! I’m looking forward to jumping back into sewing and sharing! Especially once the big girls (can’t believe Esther counts as a “big” girl now!) go back to school in a couple weeks…
