Why My Crafting Productivity Has Dropped



Yep, that's right-- I've been a quiet, inactive crafter/blogger as of late for what I deem a very good reason-- the first trimester of pregnancy! I suppose I could consider this the greatest crafting collaboration of my life and blog about it regularly, but I'm not sure it'd be as much fun to read about my fatigue and headaches as is is to read about monkey blankets and art smocks!

I hear from lots of people that the exhaustion and sickness is going to end any day now, so maybe I'll turn into a super-crafter soon. If I start blogging with great speed and show amazing craft productivity, you'll know that that's happened. :)

Love seeing your little one. Any nicknames yet? Can't wait to see you guys in a couple of weeks. I too have started knitting again!

Rachel said...

I'm guessing that's Sandy, not Kagan, talking about knitting again?! I could be wrong but somehow don't think so...

We've got a bunch of nicknames, including luchador (based on what the first ultrasound looked like!) and wiggler (based on what the technician said at the 2nd ultrasound: "You've got a wiggler on your hands!").

We have a girl's name picked out, but are still looking for a boy's name. John loves the Mongolian name Sukhbaatar, which means "axe hero" but I think a kid would get teased mercilessly and called "Suck Butter" so we're still on the hunt.

Can't wait to see you guys too!

"Suck Butter" Dominguez!......CLASSIC!!..ROFL!!!

Seriously i think it would be better as a Middle name...then if its a boy...it could be XXXXX "Suck Butter" Dominguez....LOL

Kagan said...

Oh yes it is Sandy and not Kagan who is knitting! Don't know why I am being labelled as Kagan but anyway. I'm with you on the name calling - it happens. Hope you are starting to feel better!
