Wow. So, yes, it’s been a while.

Excuse? This guy… Say hello to the newest of the Wiz Clan! A whopping 10 months after his arrival.

Life Altering on

I had every intention of continuing to just power through, be the super mom that can juggle her new life with baby, a new, fuller time job, sewing projects and blogging, but clearly, that hasn’t been the case. I purposely gave myself a maternity leave from my own freelance schedule, but when it came time to surface again in January, I was back at the necessary work but the just-for-fun stuff – this blog – kept getting pushed further and further down the list. Plus, after long busy days, I just wanted to sit on the couch for a few minutes before bed. Let my fried brain just be.

BUT – Motherhood is amazing!!! I love everything about it – the good, the bad and the tired. Truth be told, we’ve had an easy go of it. Our little guy is a good eater and sleeper and is just a laid back, happy baby – but that doesn’t mean I’m not tired at the end of the day, or that my brain hasn’t crashed and I just want to watch TV and tune out.

10 months in (to parenthood) I find that my brain is finally waking up a little. So I’m ripping out the seams, making edits, remeasuring and stitching things back together again in a life that is now permanently altered, in the best possible way. So stick with me – I’ll be slowly getting back to posting, sharing inspiration and filling you in on the latest projects.

Flee Fly Flown Cloud Blanket Design

While I will admit that being pregnant has caused some spaciness where my brain is concerned, that’s not what this post is about. Although it does have to do with little ones and sewing.

To catch up on a few things from this summer, I wanted to dive into a little show and tell.

Cloud Pillows by Flee Fly Flown

It seems that the baby boom is continuing among my friends and so I’ve been busy making lots of blankets both on Etsy and for friends. One I was especially excited to make was for my friend, Kiki’s, little one.

Flee Fly Flown made by Cloud Blanket

Based on a few things she had told me about what she was planning for the nursery and a few things that reminded me of her and her husband, I came up with the following design and matching cloud pillows that were made of 2 different fabrics each so they could be turned over – mixed and matched.

More show and tell soon!

Hi! It’s me? Remember me? The one who used to blog more often than not, now, sadly, I’ve sucked it up and been blogging not much at all.

Well I’m back and just wanted to share with you, in case you need a little engagement photo inspiration, our engagement photos from 2011 which are featured on Wisconsin Bride, today!
