The bonus of moving is that I get to see my kids sleep. We generally don't risk waking them up by peeking into their rooms at night, so it's wonderful to be able to just lie there and watch them in peace and quiet.
In the past few months we were surprised with the news of a last minute move to a small town. We had to say good bye to our sweet chickens as town ordinances wouldn't allow for us to keep them unless we had a huge lot, and when you're renting in a town without many rentals available, that's just not an option. We moved into our rental and adopted our first dog, Daphne! She's a total Daddy's girl and she is a total sweetheart who thinks she has to clean us daily! She's got a few bad habits to work on, but don't we all?! ;)
I have been sewing, I just haven't been sharing on the blog, sorry! I'm very active on Instagram, so feel free to follow me on there as "RooibosMom"!
I've just finished up my first BIG twin-sized quilt, and it only took me 1.5 years! Ha ha ha! To be fair I took many breaks from it, and only recently powered through the quilting to finish it up. Missy loves it and I am so happy with the finished product! It's a not-very-scrappy Scrappy Trip quilt. ;)

Sorry it's rotated to the right, I swear my flamingos and mermaids etc are really right side up!
A few of the other items I have completed, as well as a few snapshots from the past few months:
And I promise to blog as often as possible and keep everyone updated with what we're up to!
