It has been crazy town over here, and it’s been embarrassingly LONG since my last post! That being said, I thought I’d do this post loaded with photos to let you know what I’ve been up to.
First of all, have I mentioned that I’m 7 months preggo? Yup, that’s me and my bump and Paige.

And we just listed our house for sale. It goes on market this week! As of last weekend, we moved to a temporary rental home until we find a permanent home. I haven’t had much time to quilt (and definitely no nesting time! lol), however amongst all the craziness I did find time to work on this baby quilt (pictured above and below) for my sister in-law’s baby, Nathan. You can find the tutorial HERE.
My new space as of this week is this beautiful sun room. I am quite smitten with it!
I started moving the necessities into the room, being my Pfaff, a table and a chair.
Paige wasn’t so sure about it at first…
…but i think she approves now! 😉
Anyway, the months and weeks leading up to now involved a lot of packing and moving, and that combined with watching my 3 year old and working part time and growing a baby were pretty much non-stop. I think it’s fair to say that I am POOPED. It’s a breath of fresh air to be able to settle into a home again.
Here are some pretty photos of my house, cleaner than ever and staged to sell. (and yes, cleaning our home and new rental with a baby bump pretty much sucked, for lack of better words!) ;-p

Too tired to quilt, I found myself channeling my creativity by collecting vintage quilts. I told my hubby that it’s my source of inspiration right now. 😉 And it has been!!! Anyway, i’m kind of addicted. Here’s some recent finds…
(Above: On the ladder, the middle quilt is a vintage find. The top quilt is my Strawberries Fields Forever quilt, the bottom is my Stairway to Heaven quilt, and the mini hanging on the wall is my Sweethearts Mini quilt).

But you know me…I have quilting-ADD and i’m already scheming a new project! I’m collaborating with Lecien fabrics to create a quilt using their new Flower Sugar line of pre-cut fabrics, pictured below! I am so EXCITED to share more with you!
I’m all setup in my new space, and anxious to get quilting again after the big move!
Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll try to be better about posting. For more real-time and frequent photo posts, find me on instagram and facebook. 🙂
Happy quilting all!!
