Hello dry spell!

The dog days of summer are fully upon us - and for me, that means very little sewing time. Summertime is typically pretty busy with my work for the MQG, and with my older munchkin home from school and now a second kiddo for the first time also home in the summer, it's been interesting to say the least. Needless to say, I've spent maybe 20 minutes in my sewing room over the past month, and it was to tidy up the crazy mess of new fabrics I seem to have accumulated over the last month.

Summer's more than half over here already - the kids return to school in a mere four weeks - and I'm hoping to get a better balance going to get me at least a smidgen of summer sewing in. I figured I'd start small - I picked up a little cross-stitch project to hopefully wind up with a quick finish. It's a cute little pair of foxes, but all I've managed to stitch thus far is part of the frame, so it doesn't look like much yet.

In the meantime, since I have no pretty pretty project pictures to show you, I can at least show you how big Lorelei is getting - she's six months old now and determined to get the hang of this walking business like right now. She's babbling and vocalizing a lot, and she's got two teeth thus far. Her feet are ticklish, and she loves to pet the dogs. She'd also really like to ride them! She cracks me up, and we all love her to pieces. Here's hoping she and I can spend some more time in my sewing room this week! Have a wonderful week everyone :)

Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a very busy nine year old boy and a one year old baby girl and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
