What I've been up to :: Round Two!
Our Bird is going to be a big sister!
It's been so difficult to hold back with the fun news...mostly because it hasn't been much of a party & I wanted to be able to complain to all of you about the nausea & exhaustion ;o) I don't remember my pregnancy with Bird taking this much of a toll physically but I also didn't have a toddler around before to sap my strength and desire to go above and beyond what I feel up to doing.
So, I'm totally behind where I wanted to be with work on designing and printing fabrics, but with my limbs having grown into the sofa the past few weeks I can say it's been impossible to spend hours in the studio during nap & bedtimes. I'm (YAY!) starting to feel a little better - coming out of the queasy fog - and it's good timing. I have my SIL ready for fabrics from me for her custom purse line, I have a big sale in November that I would love to fill with lovely goods made from my own very fabrics as well, and I'm still enthused & inspired from my weekend with Heather and definitely ready to take it all on and start stocking my shop.
The clock is ticking...this baby is due early March (and if anything like Bird, it will probably be February). We're psyched to be adding to our family and giving Bird a sibling (her ultimate dream it seems). Besides my textile design work there's no shortage of projects we'd like to cross off the list in the next few months. We've already completed a few - some minor, some more boastable - finishing trim & painting out Bird's closet, total basement overhaul, getting our bathroom door to close (finally). This weekend we're taking advantage of the extra day and going for a twofer - replacing basement doors & sanding/sealing backyard deck. I'll be ready to put my feet up by the end of the weekend I'm sure.
Cheers to a new baby! And to new challenges & opportunities to grow.
Hugs, Devon :o)
