Sewing for the New Year!

It's been quite some time since our last post! Time really does go by so much faster when a baby comes along. It's been six months since baby Lucy arrived and our lives changed (for the better!).  

I'm not going to lie and pretend everything was rosy and wonderful....the first three months were much harder than I could have imagined - anyone else experience a colicky baby?  Our "unhappy" hour was from about 4pm - 7pm every evening (lots of crying!).  Our coping method was to go outside for long walks, because being outside with a screaming baby is much better than being inside.  And thank goodness for grandma (Country Mouse) - lots of help with cooking, cleaning and holding a crying baby.

Luckily, Lucy has grown into a happy (and most importantly healthy) 6 month old. She is growing and changing every day. At the moment she loves to practice her newest noise - screeching! It's a lovely thing to have her practice when we go out to eat :) Oh and her laugh, it's the cutest....really nothing compares to a baby laughing, such a sweet sound.

One of our goals for the new year is to sew a few things for ourselves (well, let's be honest - mostly for baby Lucy!).  And we plan to share those projects here on our blog. Here's a little peek at something in progress on our messy craft table:

We'll be back with more soon, we promise it won't be so long in between posts! Happy New Year!
