The Last Two Weeks.

Fava is here. He arrived last week, and his arrival brought with it upheaval of order and schedules and systems and normality. We will find a new normal. In the meantime, I'm stoked he's a sweet, snuggly (and sleepy!) baby, and Banzo and Lito adore him. In fact, I have to limit their kisses because otherwise, Fava would never sleep or eat! 

I was working on this post shortly before I went into labor, and I can't imagine I'll be making much progress on any projects in the near future--except my August bee blocks! I will have them done on time!--but I thought I'd post it anyway so you can see where things stand.

First quilt celebratory doughnuts with my first quilt student!
(Yes, they were delicious!)

Work on a baby quilt that was so promising, but apparently the quilt hates me.

Rows 1 and 2? Decent connection points.

Rows 2 and 3? Not awesome. But from afar, you can't see it so much, right?

I do have a fun post that I'd like to get up sometime this week, but that will be if my kidlets provide me the time! I hope y'all are doing well!


  1. Congratulations!!! Hope you sneak some sleep in there. :D

  2. Oh, congratulations! I was definitely wondering when Fava would greet the world. Yay for a healthy, snuggly babe and mom.

  3. Congratulations!!! That's wonderful news. :-)

    And are you kidding me, Audrey? No one will notice those tiny connections. Most folks would not even consider those to be "real" imperfections if they did, either. Maybe the quilt doesn't hate you but is actually giving you a tough love lesson on acceptance and letting go of the illusion of perfection. :-) Seriously though, your piecing is lovely - it'll be a stunner~

  4. Congratulations!! I'm so happy for you and your family!!!!

  5. He's here! He's here! It's the president of FQA: Future Quilters of America!

  6. Congratulations! I'd been thinking he would be here soon, so was checking my blog feed for your news. Glad to hear all is well xxx

  7. Congratulations!!! Looks like the zig zag quilt is working out. I think the matching up is no big deal.

  8. Super congratulations to you all!!

  9. I can't believe I've been so preoccupied with myself that I missed Fava's arrival!!!!!!!!! Hope it was a super easy delivery- and glad to hear he's sleepy and snuggly!


Thanks for leaving me a note! You've made my day!
