Hello, and a Happy New Year to you! I hope you have had a lovely one so far - can you believe we're already into February? - and that the rest of the year brings you much fun and happiness.
This year will certainly be bringing me joy, all going well, in the form of a baby girl! I'm so happy to share that we are expecting our first baby, due early July. It's very exciting, and a little daunting, and I've been rather preoccupied with all things baby and pregnancy related since late last year. Understandable, right?
In quilty news, I am working on a new pattern that will suit baby girls, baby boys, or anyone else really. I'm thinking I'll call it Cloudy Skies. Here's a little peek at the mini quilt:
That adorable little cloud with the umbrella, as well as the raindrops, are images I stamped using Derwent Inktense pencils, with a stamp set from kikki.K. I had such fun stamping and colouring it, I will have to rummage through my stamp collection and see what else I can use in my quilts.
As well as working on this new pattern, I'm planning on starting on the Farmer's Wife Sampler blocks again. It will be wonderful to get that very long-term project finished, and I have a feeling that, come the middle of the year, I'll have somewhat less time for sewing! Best get a wriggle on now, right?
Bye for now,
