Slow progress

But progress just the same!

So, the little man was born on May 11th, and he's absolutely adorable!
 One proud big sister!

Now that he's almost 3 weeks old (Really? Already??), I'm slowly getting back to my sewing. And re-arranging my workroom (I'm temporarily giving up on having any sort of flooring installed, so it will remain bare concrete for the time being).

I need to figure out how to fit everything in an 11x12 room with a truncated corner. And I have a lot of fabric. And books (and other reference materials). And other stuff. A trip to Ikea is in the near future- the Gorm shelves are the right dimensions to fit in, around & under various objects in the room, including the quilt frame that is still in the baby's room, so that's what I'll be going with. It's an awkward process- I need to unpack boxes in order to get everything in the room, but I need shelves & other things in place in order to unpack the boxes. Wheee!

I've gotten one commissioned quilt top completed, and started the second, plus I have 5 other tops completed- one is the baby's, one is a gift, the other 3 are going into my Etsy shop (eventually). I haven't been up for wrestling with the roll of batting just yet, but I need to do that soon.

I also have a 3rd commission that I started picking up fabric for yesterday, as well as at least 5 other tops cut & waiting to be pieced (some of them have been waiting more than 4 or 5 years at this point...) What, me? WIPs & UFOs? I have no idea what you might be referring to! =)

Thanks for sticking around, hopefully I'll be able to post a bit more frequently now. Or at least, I'll have more items to post about!
