Firstly, I think I'm going completely bonkers with this place. I need some sunlight. (Just wait, I'll be complaining of the heat and sun in no time at all.) So while my days have been lacking sunlight, some very sunny dispositions could be heard giggling and talking and reading in their "cave" this afternoon. I must say, it did brighten my day considerably.
But on to things that break and the good things that follow. Well, the little sewing machine I had bit the dust. Granted, it was a pretty cheap little thing, but I was able to make a thing or two on it. Well, I had just started a project that would require a whole lot of sewing, so Daniel went ahead and bought me a new sewing machine as a little early birthday present. I must say, it is the nicest machine I have ever sewed on, and I have been sewing up a storm. See the project that I started was to make the switch from disposable to cloth diapers (I can't believe how granola I'm getting. I have no idea how this started). We decided to use fitted cloth diapers and I found online info that shows you how to make them. (I can't find the link right now, I'll do it later.) So here's my little model - very reluctant to let me show off my work. Mostly I've been recycling fabric to make these, so my total cost has been minimal. I have only made about six so far, but Finn apparently likes them from the test runs.
When I finished this one today, he literally ripped off his disposable and tried to put the cloth one on himself. I think the cloth must be more comfortable.
So yes, if you have any sunshine at your house, could you please send a smidge my way? Much obliged.
