Baby year

baby

I’ve been absent for a while, due to having a wonderful baby boy, and taking some time off to care for him. As much as I enjoyed having a baby year, I’m so glad to be back to work now!

I managed to finally get into sewing too, since there was just no time for knitting with all the baby stuff going on. And nursing wear is insanely expensive when bought ready made. This has all left me with a huge appreciation for the great selection of print fabrics we have available here in Finland for children and adults both, and a definite yearning to try my hand at fabric design!

My poor garden has been pretty neglected too, though we did manage to plant a cherry tree and insert a new garden arch this year. And we got a kitchen compost, so delicious fertilizer coming up next year!

I’ll¬†update some old stuff to the blog I’ve forgotten to post earlier, and some new stuff upcoming soon too!

The image was part of a baby card sent out, continuing my experimentation with colored pencils and acrylic washes.
