Wow, I didn't realize how little I have been on the computer this week until I saw how many blogs I haven't been keeping up with. Skip a few days and it feels like you miss a lot! I'll have to do some catching up this weekend :)
Anyway, I thought I would share what I have been up to this week.
I washed and put away all the baby clothes and blankets, so that is one major thing off my checklist. Scrubbed the carseat and bouncy seat and they are ready. Managed to get two meals made and in the freezer for the family when I'm in the hospital(still need to make a few more) and the house is relatively organized.
I finished up my Valentines on Sunday. I redid these so many times because I just kept being not happy with them. I first made the polymer clay heart pins that are attached to the side, then I made the fabric cones(the color is a real pink in person, not the coral color the pic is showing). I stuffed them with so many different things, but nothing looked right, so in the end I just went with chocolate, who doesn't like chocolate? Now just need to get them in the mail.
I finally made a knit gown for the baby. But my sewing machine was acting up with the knit fabric, so I gave up and just hand sewed the whole thing. Which really only took an evening, baby clothes are small luckily. I think in came out pretty cute.
Then I crocheted some baby leg warmers for under the gown. That way during diaper changes, his little legs will still be warm. I want to make a few more pairs, yet another evening project.
I also made this bag for the baby. I fell in love with this bear fabric at goodwill a few months ago. It was originally a pair of curtains, but I knew they could be turned into something else. The fabric is a heavy canvas, perfect for a tote bag. I added the trim and a pocket on the inside, but I still need to get a thin piece of plastic to make a bottom for it so it has some stability.
And I'm working on a baby quilt for a baby shower that I'm going to on the 24th. My neighbors are throwing it for me and another neighbor. She is due the end of March and is having a girl, so I'm making her a girly patchwork quilt and maybe a matching tote(time depending).
That's it for now. Sorry I haven't been around. I have a ton of mail I still need to answer, which I'm getting too, but with running the kids to all their activities and trying to get so much done, computer time is limited lately.
Have a wonderful day,
