SR/WIP-2012-W12: Oh Where Art Thou My Blogosphere?

It has been a few weeks since I last posted the wonderful news that Ziona was born!  She is my finest project for 2012 and yet there will always be more work to do to care and raise her.  I had wanted to make her baptism gown myself, but I simply ran out of time since I waited to figure out her size. It is a good thing that I did not make the gown because I had cut out a newborn size and my little girl's dress ended up being a 3-6 month sized dress (the one we bought).  [In the picture above My husband and I are in the middle, I am holding Ziona, while each set of Godparents stand to the sides.]

2012 Used by Permission

I will not be posting a lot about my daughter on my blog because someone mentioned that Mommies end up making mommy-blogs rather than craft blogs when they focus on their children.  I do have another blog I am thinking of dusting off to allow the my friends and family to keep up with her there.  My goal in starting this blog was to work on sewing, quilting and other general crafty type things.  Since I have been away from blogging I have done exactly Zero projects!  I realized how much having the place to discuss, share and plan my projects was such a help to me in accomplishing my goals.  In a way I felt like I have accountability with my blogging friends that I cannot drum up on my own!  I also miss the inspiration I obtained from reading and/or stalking my favorite blogs.  Sometimes I was simply inspired by their color choices stirring me to try a similar combination of colors.
