New title...

I just wanted to pop in and tell you all a little about what's been going on behind the scenes here. I feel like I've completely fallen off the blogging bandwagon and I'm truly sorry, but I have an excuse and it's pretty awesome if I do say so myself. 

I get to add a new title to my resume. So far I have quilter, pattern designer, author, long arm quilter and fabric hoarder if I'm being completely honest. Well, adding to this list will also be mom <3

This little one has been wreaking havoc on my system these last few weeks which has left me feeling less than stellar most days. I've been using what little energy I have left to eat and take care of my clients needs, maybe clean and shower somewhere in there... But most days my couch and I (with our friends ginger ale and crackers) have been spending a lot of quality time together. 

I'm hoping in a few more weeks I will be feeling a little more "back to normal" and quilting like a mad woman. Luckily I've scheduled myself a little more open for the time being, but here's my plea to you:

Please plan ahead for Christmas quilts and show quilts you're looking for in the near future because I'm not entirely sure how long I'll be able to reach the machine efficiently and I'm not going to schedule myself into oblivion during the holidays this year. Sorry, but I've got my health and this little growing baby to look out for! 

My hope is to be quilting until late January or so (best case scenario) and be back to quilting in the Spring. As much as I'd love to give a more concrete plan, being a first-time mom, I don't want to spread myself too thin. I can still take early reservations for quilting slots, but I won't be able to guarantee turn around for next year at this time. 

So please, if you're thinking about getting some quilting done later this year, I would appreciate an early word so I can make sure you're on the schedule. We can work out timing (don't feel you need the quilt done just yet) so you and I both know when roughly I will be working on your quilts. I'm already booking through most of September and as I said, I'm planning on keeping the schedule a bit lighter than usual so baby and I can rest. 

I'm so excited for this new adventure and I can't wait until March! Okay, maybe I can, but I can't. You know what I mean! 

So that's the big secret! I haven't been avoiding you on purpose, I promise!

  9. Wonderful, how exciting. Don't be discouraged if the morning sickness lasts past morning or more months than they tell you. Take care of yourself. I was so attached to my couch during my 3rd or 4th pregnancy that for the first time in my life I watched GOLF on TV. Before that I had played golf but would never dream of spending time watching it. (This was early 80's before DVR's and Netflicks) I think I also remember crying watching an Iron man triathlon.
