Just in case anyone is still checking in to see what I have been up to and not just looking for new pictures of Munchkin, I thought I would give an overview of a few of the projects I have been working on. What? You didn’t think I had time for projects anymore? 🙂
Seedlings getting ready for the garden (tomatoes, peppers, marigolds, mint, lavender, and basil):
I’m not putting anything out until midway through the month because, well, I learned my lesson a couple of years ago! Good thing too, because it is supposed to freeze tonight… Oh, and my husband is busting out part of our patio for me so that I have room to plant everything. Such a sweetie! (for those that don’t know, our yard is mostly concrete patio)
The other day I got a hankerin for some new potholders:
Potholders are one fairly mindless project I can do while Munchkin nurses 🙂 Plus, I had a bunch of cotton scraps that needed used up…
I told Stephen I was a hobby short this month (he gives me a hard time about starting something new before I finish the old projects!), so I checked out a library book on crewel work embroidery and set out to learn:
This paisley design is along the edge of a linen ring-sling that I have been working on to replace the fairly ugly one I have been using.
Oh, and doesn’t Munchkin look adorable in his new diaper covers???
I made several of them a few weeks ago, and this week replaced the elastic in all of them. The old elastic was pilling really bad because of the velcro, so I upgraded to a better quality elastic. uhg… I hate ripping out stitches! A few of you have asked about how I made the diaper covers, so I am also working on a tutorial for them… stay tuned!
