I decided to take a break from the blog when I had a baby. That break lasted longer than I anticipated. My Baby is going to be 2 in a few months. I have no idea where the time has gone.
I never realized how important sleep was to my creativity. My baby has not been a good sleeper. My first child was an excellent sleeper. She was sleeping through the night by 6 months. This one.. we are just now getting 7 hours of sleep out of her.
With no sleep, I have felt like a vegetable most days. I can't say that my creativity has been completely lacking. There are still ideas in there, but actually getting those ideas on paper or figuring them out seems like an impossible feet.
This time has not been wasted. I have been growing myself in other areas of fiber art like knitting and embroidery. I hope to expand this blog to include those new possibilities.
Here are some sneak peeks of what I have been working on.

This is the nurmilintu shawl pattern that you can find on Ravelry. It was really easy to accomplish.
