Secret Project Revealed

If you have been following this blog for a while now, you know that I have been talking about sending in my next book proposal for a good 5 months. I know! I talk and talk about it, but have I done it? Well, no. And for a really good reason.

See we have some big news around here, that has shaken up the CBF Headquarters for the last few months. What's that big secret news that I have only slightly offhandedly hinted at?

CBF headquarters will be adding its newest member of the team, oh around about Mid September. That's right, we're having a baby.

So not moving on any book proposal, starts making more sense, right? It certainly would if you have been around me the last few months, because I have been miserable. Just terribly sick. It is also the reason, I have not blogged much or chatted on Twitter or been at Ravelry or anywhere really. (For those of you who have taken classes from me in the last few weeks, it is also the reason I was sitting down a lot and nibbling on snacks constantly.) Basically my goal most days the last couple of months have just been to get through the day, get some work (really any work) done and go to sleep. I have just recently (like in the last few days) started to feel better, so I thought it was perfect timing to let you all in.

Now, don't worry. If you aren't a big baby person, I am not going to turn my blog into constant baby chatter or anything. This blog is still for crochet and Crochet By Faye designs. Actually, I don't plan on mentioning it much more here at all. See, I am super duper superstitious and don't want to jinx anything. That also means that I don't plan on sharing too much details until the little peanut is here. But if I do need to share, it will be on Facebook or Twitter.

Still, I wanted to let you all know what was going on here at CBF, since it has really rocked our world. We are super excited for CJ (Crochet Jr) to join the staff and wanted to let you all know our thrilling news.

Oh Robyn what fun!! (esp. after the 3rd month). I'm so excited for you!

Amy said...

Wow, congratulations! I would have been happy to tell you in person had I known you were two months along when I took your class. ;-)

The best thing about having a baby when you have lots of crafty friends are all of the adorable hand-knit and crocheted baby items that will come your way! Knitted and crocheted bibs and burp cloths are awesome!
