So I have a big announcement and explains why I've been largely absent from both blogging and even sewing the last few weeks/months.
Meet the seedling. My due date is February 24. I'm now 14 weeks along and officially in my second trimester and really hoping that I get some energy and motivation back soonest. I have a baby quilt to make for my sister who is due at the beginning of January, as well as one for myself. I already know what I'm going to do for the seedling's baby quilt, so that's one large hurdle out of the way.
I am planning on a small version of the "Project of Doom" bookshelf quilt from Fandom in Stitches. But using some of their other patterns to fill in the little knick knacks on the bookshelf, not just Harry Potter ones. I think I'm going to keep either Hedwig or the Golden Snitch and replace everything else with one item from LotR, one from Beauty and the Beast, etc. Then I plan to embroider the spines of the books with Children's and Young Adult book titles. Pretty much anything I plan to read to my kid(s) while they're too young to read themselves (we're planning on eventually having two).
I apologize that I still have not picked any winners for the For Pinks Sakes give-away. I promise I haven't forgotten, but it's been all I can do to get home and eat something the last couple of weeks, much less try and figure out how many entries each person should get.
