Exciting stuff...

I have some news to share that some of you already know, but we are expecting our third little one this spring!  I am so excited!  But, tired!  Oh, tired all the time!  Hence, the drop in sewing production lately.  By the time the boys go to bed I am worn out.  Add in some Kindergarten room mom duties, school volunteer stuff, a dog with a torn ACL and basic household stuff and I am barely getting the minimum done around here.  But this week I did manage one little finish.


I turned this little pile of scraps into a finish.  I can't show you exactly what it is yet.  I put it in the mail this morning and once it arrives I can fill you in on the rest.  I do love the rainbow Heather Ross bits in the centers, but it didn't quite turn out like I thought it would.  I think I should have used linen instead of the kona ash, but it was a very time sensitive project and I didn't have as much time to ponder these things.  I do hope my recipient likes it!

Meanwhile I have to get the rest of my scraps in order to show them to you on Monday for the 
Scrappy Stash Quilt-Along at Ellison Lane Quilts.  Am I the only one that kind of feels like this is akin to sharing the contents of their underwear drawer? ; )

Have a lovely weekend and if you are in the Charlotte area, maybe I'll see you tomorrow at Barnful of Quilts?  Saturday 10/6 is the 10th annual Barnful of Quilts in Waxhaw. It will be held from 10-5 at the Fox Family Farm at 7505 Sims Road (704-516-8060). The Charlotte Modern Quilt Guild will have an information booth at the show and several of our members have quilts that will be in the show. The proceeds benefit Samaritan's Purse.

    Sorry you've been feeling so tired. Wish I could help you out with that! Hopefully that 2nd trimester energy will kick in soon.
    I hope to get to the Barn Quilt thing tomorrow too. Sounds fun!

  2. Congrats on the baby! I certainly feel your pain with the tiny amount of time for sewing. I'm often just too exhausted once the kids are in bed and I'm NOT pregnant.
    The scrappy stars are SO adorable. I love fussy cut, rainbows and heather ross so much! I can't wait to see what it is!

  6. Courtney - what wonderful news! Three is a perfect number. My parents had 3, we each married spouses who were from 3-children families, then we each had 3 children! So my niece who now has two little girls is getting a lot of pressure from her cousins to have one more! Haha. And don't feel bad about not being productive. I admire all you young mothers who sew and blog. I did not sew (or do much of anything crafty) until my youngest was 17.
