Progress and a bonus

I managed to get a block done and a little extra.  It was a nice relaxing weekend here at home.  It was our first weekend alone as a family since the baby arrived.  Dad kept an eye on the boys while I got some much enjoyed sewing time.  It felt good to get another Swoon block completed.

This is what I have so far.  Only 6 more to go!

I also finished a granny square block.  I love the quilt over at Blue Elephant Stitches.  I have wanted to make a granny square quilt ever since I found this one at my man's home in West Virginia.  It is really old and heavy, and you can tell it was hand pieced.  I love the simplicity of it and the scrappiness was done out of necessity not for fun.

Finding the tutorial and seeing all the great blocks on Flickr, I couldn't resist making at least one.

and baby says I'm done at the computer ;^)
Thanks for the very sweet comments!

Sewing delayed

Baby boy arrived last Sunday so I haven't gotten any sewing done lately.  Aside from recovering from an emergency c-section, I am just trying to get in a routine with a toddler and a newborn now.  I really want to get back to my Swoon blocks soon, but not sure when that will happen.  I am also dying to start on some granny square blocks but fat chance that will happen any time soon.  I have so many WIP's right now, I have to stay focused and finish something before I cut up any new fabric.  I miss my sewing room but am loving being a mommy to my two boys.  Life is pretty sweet right now and I am enjoying my lil peanut and my big boy.  Hope everyone is doing good too.
