New Baby

Hello My Name is Hazel


I’ve heard that my mom is a fabric designer for a place called Moda.

That she sews all the time.


I hear jokes about us having enough “blankets” to survive the apocalypse. And more coming all the time.

And there is a whole lot of fabric around here. I hear it’s called Meadowbloom. (Ships July/August)

That all those preparations take over our home and things get a little…hectic.

But here’s the thing.

I’ve been too busy snuggling.

And smiling milky smiles.


I have been teaching everyone in this little house to adore me.

Which means they don’t have time for much else.

Because no matter how beautiful the fabric is, or how lovely the quilts might be, there’s just nothing quite like that newborn smell.


Or so they tell me.

So instead of a blog takeover, what has happened over here is a whole life and family takeover.

And we’re all loving every minute.1011257_10152700766967553_6306339383919813659_n

Don’t worry, I’ll let my mom get back to quilts, and sewing, and fabric soon–and maybe, just maybe, I’ll see you at the next big show. I hear it’s in Houston.

Baby Boy Shower

My sister had a baby boy last week, but before he came we threw her a big party.

Complete with sailboats and sharks and starfish.

And lots and lots of treats.

(Yes, I picked out all the pink and purple m&ms. I’m weird like that.)
