Merry Christmas!

Or insert winter holiday of your choice. We're not picky! =)

As I commented in my previous post, my mother definitely helps 'feed the need' when it comes to fabric. One of my gifts this year was 10 fat quarters, 7 as a set and 3 just for fun, and  a beeswax holder for conditioning thread for handsewing.

She and I always wreak havoc when we set foot in a fabric store. Neither she nor my husband are appropriate chaperonage, it seems. Both of them seem to have ideas for projects for me, so the stash never seems to get smaller!

Hopefully once the baby is here, and has given us a little breather, I'll be able to start planning and sewing more items for my shop. It will be a good challenge for me, and one that I am looking forward to.

Speaking of the baby, we found out on Wednesday we are having a boy! We are all very excited, although my daughter would have preferred a sister for Christmas. =) Baby boys are not very common in my husband's family, so knowing that family name will continue makes the whole family very happy. We still hope to someday be able to move back to his hometown, even if we don't continue in the family business.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season, and best wishes for everything you need in the the new year!
