Home again and starting a fun new project!

I had so much fun spending time with Jennie. The best part was getting reacquainted with Silas and meeting little baby Norah. They are so precious and it was pure joy. I can look back with such warm memories of time spent holding both of them. There is nothing like a new baby, she is so adorable!

The first week we shopped, got last minute things ready for the new baby, and dreamed of things we would still like to make for our shop. So many ideas and it seems like so little time. I think sometimes it's easy to get caught up in wanting to do more, yet the important things in life like family and especially little one's are always first in our minds and hearts.

Jennie did more sewing than I did. I really was there to hold a newborn baby and play with Silas. Both of which I did plenty of and could never get enough of. Silas is such a character and is able to communicate his wants so clearly. He learned some new words while I was there, purple, was a new one and he loves green, and school daddy and also school bus. By the time I left he was also saying NeNe Norah. Maybe it sounded a little more like No-wah, but we knew what he meant.

So on one of our shopping outings I found this book and decided I would really like to crochet again. It has been a long time but I think it would be fun to learn to crochet roses for baby hats and maybe even the hats. This book has a lot of good patterns I would like to try to make.

I just want to say thank you for reading our blog, we really enjoy reading your comments and going through this journey with you. I am so proud of my daughter Jennie she truly is a wonderful young woman.


  1. Clara, as a loyal follower I love the creativity the two of you display through your blog and shop! I would say like mother, like daughter...your love and passion for each other make everything else succeed! Glad you had baby time and family time!

  2. That is so sweet! I just love how you two relate with eachother. My mom and I are best friends, too. It is refreshing to see family get along like this. :-)

  3. Can't wait to see your crochet project. I love seeing your posts. Please continue to do so!
