Making Mights Wave
It turns out I’ve learned a few things in the past year. One being that I’m really horrible at blogging while pregnant. Another, something that I’m still learning and forever will be, is how to live life with two children. There is definitely a learning curve and there are habits that are changing for logistical reasons, but most of all it’s really, truly so much fun.
This is a quilt I started a few weeks before Rory was born. As you can see from my last post these fabrics were intended for a different project but pregnancy hormones had a different plan. If you didn’t know the last month of pregnancy is approximately 5,835 days long and extremely exhausting. I was going crazy waiting for Rory to arrive and piecing this pattern together helped keep my mind occupied. Thank goodness he arrived before I started basting! Now that he’s almost six months old (I’m not crying 😭) and he’s starting to become more independent I’m starting to find more time to work on my projects.
So here is some work in progress. I did some quilting, ripped out some quilting, and now I’m ready to do some more. I’m feeling good about the progress I’ve made, small though it may be, and it has me wanting to approach this site, my tiny nook of the internet, and how I share it from a different angle. I don’t like making excuses for not posting because really, this is for me, not for you (but, of course, I’m so glad you’re here and I do hope you enjoy it!), and I don’t need to explain myself. I also don’t like making promises that I can’t keep. Instead I’d like to change my content to suit my life, rather than change my life to produce the content my harsh inner critic thinks I should be sharing. So here’s to posting more because I want to, not because I need to. And here’s to posting more about the progress not the product. That is, after all, what I originally intended. I just got a bit sidetracked and lost.
There will be some changes around here and it may be a while before you see them, but that’s kind of the point. My life is much different now than when I started this endeavor. I’m a different person now with new goals and I think it’s important to let this change with me. I’m hoping these changes will keep things more active and interesting and therefore, more fulfilling. Here’s to growing your mights while growing yourself.
