Projects of late:
Most of my evening time has been geared towards the new house...which we STILL are waiting to close on, hopefully Monday...researching appliances, etc. But, after a week or so, I miss my little Viking lady and find a reason to sew something. Once inspired, I always stay up too late, and always regret it, and spend the next day flat on the couch as often as possible (not very with these two). Anyway, this is what I've been making:
My friend Rachel made this sweet dress for her niece last year and lent me the pattern. She warned that the pattern ran large, so I made the newborn size and ended up with a shirt(!) for Anna:
This quilt was finished in the eleventh hour so this pic is swiped off Rachel's blog:
Guess what these are:
Friends of ours used these bamboo velour wipes with their first child and loved them. They asked me to sew up a second set for their newest edition and sweetly gave me enough fabric to make a couple extra sets. When I heard the idea of reusable wipes you had to wash, I was not interested at all. And then I felt the fabric...double.ply.plush.velour...so soft and buttery, and in a solution in a wipes warmer? Wow. Luxury and thriftiness meet. We'll try these with baby girl in September and I'll let you know how wipes-washing goes.
And last, quilt for WICP.
Alright, my brain just walked out the door. Like a light switch, it's gone, so I guess we'll end here. Happy weekend!
