Where Did I Go?

I've been on a bit of a blogging break, due to sheer necessity. This blog in particular has been hard for me to keep up, since I've had less time to sew. But I dearly love you, sewing friends, and wanted to peek in and say hello! 

Here are a few of the other places I've been hanging out:

My living room: Elliot just turned 6 months old! Consequently, it's getting more difficult to keep him entertained by sitting him on the couch next to me while I finish up freelance work on my laptop. We've adjusted by introducing him the to exersaucer and doorway jumper, both of which make him growl with delight. He's also accompanying me to quilt guild meetings, eating solid food (loves it!), learning to sit up, petting the cat, and babbling like a pro (ma-ma-ma-ma-ma).

Craftsy: About once or twice a week, I'm over on the Craftsy quilting blog. Here's a post I wrote on stuffed animal sewing patterns, including my recent Hugh Manatee pattern release! I'm so happy to see your manatees.

Craft Buds: Just posted at Craft Buds this morning, and there's a my mom wearing a cute Goorin Brothers summer hat you can enter to win!

My sewing room: I'll be back soon to share more on my latest sewing project, which my friend Veronica and I worked on for a photo shoot featuring Ann Kelle fabrics (if you hop over to this link, you'll see our stack of colorful floor pillows in the center photo!).

Instagram: Can you believe I haven't even had much time to post on my Instragram lately? Here's a fun pic from a few weeks ago of me doing planks in the park with a group called Mommy Fit Camp. Joining this group is one of my best decisions in a long time (exercise + getting out of the house + making some new friends), and I'm more than halfway to my goal of losing the baby weight.

Happy summer!

Do you find it difficult to keep up with your blog this time of year? When is your best time of day to blog?


  1. I think everyone understands why you aren't blogging! :) I find first thing in the morning is the easiest time for me, or after the kiddo's go to bed, but summertime is always hard because there are so many fun things going on outside!

  2. Hi, nice to see you both! I'm a last thing at night poster (although I schedule), but that's mainly because my day job is currently my evening job too...

  3. I haven't been keeping up with my blog at all since I had kids and went back to work. It's basically again become a place to keep track of my finished projects. I'm considering it an evolving work! Glad to hear you joined a mom group, hope that's helping with the struggles you were having before. Elliot is too adorable!

  4. That's life and your family and yourself always have to come first. I typically get my most Me time early in the morning while everyone else is still asleep.

  5. Mommy Fit Camp?! What an amazing idea. Glad you are making time for yourself, and glad to see you on my bloglovin' feed again! :)
