Breaking News: Hard to get things done with a newborn in the house.

Just stating the obvious in case anyone is wondering why I've been such a terrible blogger so far this month.

But one of the (many) benefits of a newborn is:


Divine hand crocheted blanket (thank you Maaike

Finest Italian fashion (bisous Blandina)

Moda the dog; the newest addition to the family (merci Sarah)

Wise words (relatives) and a little something just for me, me, me (the Texan connection: Aidan and Sara Louise)

A little bit of sewing to machine quilt the baby's blanket. 

It's not going to bind itself, kid, hop to it.

Plenty of Patty Young's Sanctuary line, with a bit of Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow and a navy Essex Linen/Cotton blend. Sashed with Kona White.

Hope you've all had a great weekend. Will continue to post when I can, but only if I have something interesting to say!

  6. Hi there Kirsty,
    Goodness, you have a newborn plus other kids, plus a husband....and you expect to have time to blog?!! :) No expectations from me, family first and all that except if blogging is something that keeps you sane, then I hope you find time for it.
    Your gorgeous little man is growing and looks so adorable. Love your presents too.
