A Summary of the Last Several Months

I can sum up the last several months (okay, it’s been closer to a year since I’ve posted) with one word:  Marceline.

She was born in December. Saying life has been crazy ever since is not accurate. It was crazy to begin with. She’s the fourth and last child–I do not plan on having anymore. There hasn’t been a baby in the house for many years, so we’ve been enjoying every minute of it! As terrible as it sounds (for the other three), I feel like I’m much more present with Marcy. I realize how quickly they grow up, and am trying to hold on to every moment I can.

So, other than the arrival of Marcy, it’s been a typical year. The kids are growing. I have two boys in middle school, now, and Maggie, who was toddling around not too long ago, is now in 1st grade.

Even though I haven’t been online, sharing my crafts, I’ve kept busy making things. I made a blanket for my sister-in-law a few months back, same style as Marcy’s, but in bolder colors:

I’ve also made a few hats, and a dress for Marcy, which turned out to be more of a sweater vest:

I also finished an art quilt I started a long time ago. Maybe you recognize it?

I’m also working on the mermaid quilt I started a few years (2009!!) ago. Photos to follow, soon!

Well, that’s what’s going on right now!

  1. I didn’t think it fair to just leave this comment on Facebook. You are absolutely amazing! I can’t imagine doing what all you do with one child, let alone the group you have. You’re an inspiration to us all, parents and non-parents alike 🙂
