Welcome to so many new followers! I feel a little overwhelmed with how many comments I have received on my two SMS Giveaways. I hope you will enjoy visiting my blog and seeing what I have been creating.
My time to sew seems to be rapidly disappearing. Even though I have been in denial, I am finally coming to terms with my two year old's change in schedule: she is done taking afternoon naps. I am squeezing in what I can, but I really do better with a solid chunk of time rather than a few minutes here and there. So I've realized with any of my holiday sewing, I need to keep things simple and try not to overdo it. I recently participated in an ornament swap and I found this adorable and simple tutorial on Wild Olive to make a nativity ornament:
I also have been churning out these cute stocking ornaments to be small gifts for various people like MOPS (Mother's of Preschoolers) members and school and church teachers. Last year I made lots of zip bags for people, but these are much quicker and still cute. Tutorial is at Stumbles and Stitches.
On a personal note, I would like to share that I am expecting our third child on May 23! We are excited and my other children are thrilled. I won't be finding out the gender ahead of time, I love having the surprise at the end. I feel like this explains my lack of productivity for the last several months although many people have been telling me that I have been accomplishing plenty. I will make some things for the baby soon and I probably should get going on that before my energy really disappears!
Thanks for reading. Linking up to Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
