Ladies and gentlemen, I’m pleased to announce that my husband and I welcomed a darling daughter into the world last week. Yes, despite the fact that the vote was for a boy by a small majority, 14 to 11, she turned out to be a little girl! I guess I’ll be needing to finish that quilt sooner rather than later after all!
Our little family is doing well. Our daughter is super healthy, and labor and delivery went pretty much as well as I could have hoped. That’s not to say labor wasn’t hard, but I felt well prepared and well cared for thanks to a fabulous set of midwives and nurses and a wonderful eight-week baby class that my husband and I took leading up to the birth. And, likely thanks to the power of hormones, by the end of the day she was born, I’d pretty much already forgotten how hard labor truly was.
Now that she’s here, I get to start testing the waters around my first resewlution: keep sewing once the little one arrives.
- Keep sewing once the little one arrives.
- Be more conscious of sewing with fabrics and patterns that flatter and fit my lifestyle.
Move to my own dot com.
- Get better connected with the Seattle sewing community.
I can’t imagine any sewing will be going on for the next little bit, but I am hoping I might be able to follow Nicole of Nicole at Home‘s advice about getting the little one used to the whirr of the sewing machine sooner rather than later. I think the Ziggi Sew-Along being co-hosted Sew Maris and Stacy Sews might be the perfect make-sure-I’m-back-to-sewing-by-then goal. The end of February sounds attainable, and I already have the pattern and fabric ready to go since the StyleARC Ziggi jacket was on my Spring to-sew list thanks to Shams of Communing with Fabric (see her version here). We’ll see how things go, but it’s nice to at least have a goal.
Okay, well, back to doting on my newborn! Happy sewing to the rest of you!
