Decisions, decisions

Hello friends! Long time no talk! So sorry that I have been so very absent but this first trimester of pregnancy is taking a toll on me. I haven't sewn a lick in over 3 weeks. Which is totally abnormal since I usually sew about an hour a day! I have 2 quilts, a wall hanging, a table runner and table topper to bind and I haven't had any motivation whatsoever to do it.

I pretty much try and keep the house, play with my kids and nap whenever possible!
The weather here has started to get better (less rain, more sun) and Gavin almost has the garden ready to be planted. The ground work is all done he just needs to complete the fencing around it (to keep the chickens and deer and wandering cats out of it.) I am so overly anxious to get it all planted. I have all my seeds ready and a couple tomato plants on their way from Territorial. You just can't grow tomato from seed here- the growing season is just way too short and it simply isn't warm enough.
The kids and I have been playing outside a lot and enjoying the weather. Wyatt just mowed everything yesterday afternoon so our yards don't look like jungles anymore- thank heavens!The thought that has been running around in my head lately has been whether to keep my Etsy shop open. I wouldn't close it down permanently at this point, I just may stick in in vacation mode for a while. I keep thinking about how much I'm not sewing and how much time I will be spending in the garden and outside in general once summer hits. I have 2 quilts for Layton that are only half completed. I want to make a quilt for this new baby and I want to start and FINISH the quilt for our bed. I have a quilt to make for my new niece who is due at the end of July and one to make for a special someone for their birthday (I can't mention names because she/he reads this blog.) So all in all, I've got quite a bit of quilting to do just for myself let alone a quilt shop. I'm going to take some time to pray about it and see what the Lord tells me I need to do. I love my Etsy shop and have so much fun creating things for it. I love the buyers who come from all over the world to purchase quilts. I love the friends I have on my Quiltsy team. But maybe it's time for me to take a long break. I dunno. Decisions, decisions.

Breaks are sometimes necessary. You're a busy mama and you don't want to overdo it. Maybe just try to sell what you have in the shop already and take the summer off. That's just a suggestion. If you need anything, let me know.
