Hello world!

newborn photo shoot with Akylis

I know it’s been ages, but I am back…sort of. Can you believe I started intermittently blogging 5 years ago in a tiny apartment in Rio de Janeiro? Now, I’m juggling the twins and a kindergartener in Florida. What a journey! I still find sewing relaxing and have learned so much through the online sewing community. Thank you for being a party of this journey!

So for the baby quilts and other baby projects, I did finish them! Above is the fun and done quilt with the newborns.

Here they are one month out on the quilt I made using a panel top with batting and a cotton flannel bottom. Super easy, fast, and oddly soothing to sew all those straight rows of quilting stitches.

Finally here they are today looking adorable with the swaddling clothes I stitched up. The writing is a preview of my first post-preggo project-a sew-a-long with a Facebook group (more about that later).

I hope 2017 has been going well for you dear reader!
