After the hospital life seems like it is chaotic and in fast forward. Slowly though I have been working on getting back into crafting. My mom found this wonderful book at JoAnn's while she was here. I had mentioned that I wanted to make a simple one and asked for her help finding the correct yarn to use. I am so glad she found this book! How fun! I need more yarn - I want to try so many of the patterns in here.
Here is one I made (it is missing the final border - I had to tear it out because I just didn't reach). It is easy enough to do hand work while I am breastfeeding and holding the baby.
I also started hand-sewing one of the Farmer's Wife blocks. I will share a picture of that when it is finished. I am hoping to get back to doing even more soon. However, I am not rushing it too much. I am totally enjoying the quiet snuggling and feeding I spend most of my days doing currently.
