Your humble Fiber of Her Being blog is going to be undergoing a make-over in the days and weeks to come. It's two dimensions will be rounded into something bigger, sweeter, whole...er.
A year and a half ago I started another blog, to document our journey through infertility, and to let the world know a little about how it felt. Last summer we finally got pregnant, and this January we had our little baby girls. They'll be turning eight months old this week, and as they grow out of their little baby clothes, I think I'm starting to grow out of the infertility blog.
This is not to say that I've finally shed my infertility skin. No; I think that will stay with me forever. And it's not to say that I've forgotten about my loved ones who are still fighting the infertility fight. Nothing could be farther from the truth. It is for them that I'm moving my stories to a new forum. There are lots and lots of infertility blogs out there that now show pictures of sweet babies and toddlers, and describe the joys and trials of childrearing for all to see. Sure, they offer hope that infertility can give way to a family. But they also hurt the currently-infertile when they celebrate one more woman who got to have children. That's the way I felt when I used to see them, anyway.
So I'm moving URLs and changing my focus. We'll mark "AchievingConceiving" as "Achieved: Conceived," and bring my photos and fairy tales to roost with the fiber of my being. Turns out, there's a lot of creativity needed to raise two girls, and if you want, a TON of opportunities to sew.
Stay tuned for pictures of babies, of bibs and blankets, and all the other things that go into a creative life. And yes, there will still be pictures of artwork. It will just be a happier medium.
