{9 months already} + a fresh start




These girls.  Over 9 months old now!  Weighing in under 15lbs they are small but feisty ... Summer is crawling and pulling up on furniture, she loves Cheez-Itz (I know!  But at this point, its the least of my worries) she has one tooth in with the second taking its time.  Mckenna is sweet as honey, sleeps 12 hours without a peep,  and loves Cheerios. She has two bottom teeth.  They both just adore their big brother - every day they find something worth laughing with him about.  Makes me laugh too!

This time last year I couldn't even imagine what my life was going to be like.  Now I cannot imagine my life without these two sweet angels.  Every day there are usually a few moments of mass chaos, (aka two or more screaming their precious little heads off,) but thats to be expected... as every mama can attest to, right?

So January.  Here in Ohio it has been week after week of crazy cold, snow, and general meteorological misery.  And I LOVE winter, so that's saying something!  I've gotten very little sewing time thanks to the gorgeous above faces, but I have managed to slowly clean up and uncover my entire cutting table!  



I had forgotten how big it is! The long-over due WIPs are sitting there on the corner...  one being a quilted pillow cover I started over a year ago.  *Insert cringe here*
Yes, I promise to show you soon - its a gorgeous paper-pieced pattern by Faith over at Fresh Lemons Quilts, called Poinsettia.  Hmm... maybe I should keep it as a wall hanging instead of turning it into a pillow.  That back wall is rather bare above my table! 
Isn't January February a great time to start fresh?  I'd say so!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
