Obviously, not blog.
So, what did I do?
Sewing-wise, I made a pettiskirt for K:
I made a superhero cape for my nephew but totally failed to take a picture of it.
I made an Oliver+S fairy tale dress for K…I hate the fabric, but I love the pattern:
I made a flashback skinny tee for K:
I made a baby quilt for my new niece:
And I worked on (but didn’t finish) a bunch of quilts that I started a million years ago.
I didn’t sew as much as I would have liked, especially considering that I had the summer off, but I got to spend a ton of time hanging out with K, and it was a blast. We took swimming lessons and went to the park and explored our city. I wouldn’t trade my time with her for the world!
I also started training for a fall half marathon. I ran prior to getting pregnant and continued to run through most of my pregnancy, but after K was born, I was in survival mode (she still doesn’t sleep…), and survival mode just doesn’t include running 20+ miles/week. I finally found my groove and made a training plan happen (though it’s still 6 weeks away, so it’s a little early for celebrating). I loved running before, but I’ve discovered that I love it even more now that time to myself is no longer a given.
Hopefully I’ll start blogging semi-regularly again now that I’m back to work. It seems weird to think that I have more time when I’m working than when I’m off, but it always seems to work out that way!
