Female friends are very important. I have been told about this many times by my friends before, I strongly felt it this time. My husband was (is) totally helpless this time, not only that, he kicked me off from the cliff many times. It was much harder to recover from the shock I got from him than miscarriage. My sadness was blown away by other kind of sadness. I now just hate to get "D & C" surgery after Christmas.
I think I have some mothers excluding my real mother who gave me a birth, here in the USA and in Japan. How lucky I am. Some of them are older than me, some are at the same age as me. Their words from their experiences, concerns, and suggestions comfort me. I always feel I can make mistakes in front of them. I appreciate for having them very much.

I didn't have much energy for sewing because of my pregnancy for a while. Strangely, it came back soon after I miscarried my baby. It might be because I tried to stay myself away from the sadness by sewing. I don't have to think extra things when I am quilting. After I completed one quilt, I got desire to make other things.

Since my friend suggested me to make booties for a baby for sale, I started to search some books for it at library, and online. It would be interesting :-)

Wishing you all have a great Christmas, and happy new year!

We are in holiday season now. I feel this season when I am invited by my friends often for parties and potlucks. They keep me busy in fun. I don't personally cerebrate hollydays though, I love to feel them.

This holiday season is special for me rather than big holidays. My anniversary is Dec. 26, my husband and my birthday is Jan. 7. Yes, we have the same birthday. So many events are in this season. I am glad my baby's due is July 4th, we need to spread events.

I am not that active for my handmade shop, since I am feeling sleepy and tired as I take a nap often dairy because of pregnancy. It is very strange for me to not feel aggressive to create something. I have been enjoying looking at quilting magazines, imaging what I want to make next though, I am not feeling for taking action.
So, I have been spending the time that I am supposed to sew for watching movies with my husband, talking with him, playing with my rabbits more often, and although most of it is spent for taking a nap.

I enjoyed to make some Christmas arrangements for my friends to give away when I felt better, since we are in holiday season.

Sorry for the messy back ground! I worked in my storage room...
