So fast!

The week has gone by so fast.

I haven't gotten any sewing done this week. Hopefully, we are getting a new car (not new new, but used.). We are almost done paying off the two garages we owe for fixing our Eclipse, the last few times it broke down. I can hardly wait.

On our Upper Midwest meet and greet, we went to the Yarn Garage in Rosemount. I had never meet Steven before, but I am in awe! That man is AMAZING! He had the cutest toddler jacket in his store. It was the Elizabeth Zimmerman Baby Surprise Jacket, but he added a ruffle around the collar, down the front and around the sleeves. It was gorgeous! He made it in Sirdar Denim Ultra in Pink Marl. It is absolutely divine, he named it the diva jacket and is it ever!

I started my first baby quilt on Thursday. Yesterday I got the front panel finished. Today, I bought Warm and Natural batting from Joann's. I got 3 yards for $17! I love the feel of the batting. It feels soooo warm.

I have been sewing like crazy. I have 12 baby legs done, over half my diapers are completely finished with velcro and everything. I have a lot more to do though, I have the crib bumper to sew along with the sock monkey blanket and dust ruffle. I need to start on the next size diapers, although I need more Warm and Natural batting for those. I saw this gorgeous toddler dress a women made out of her husband's button down shirt, but I guess I don't need to be worrying about toddler clothes!!

I made 20 diapers so far. (The pic is missing the first diaper I made)
This is the diaper I made from the Sock Monkey fabric that I got at Crafty Planet when I went shopping with Elanor.

And I made 41 cloth wipes (weird number I know, but I ran out of flannel!)

I found an amazing contest at Life on the Road. She is giving away Mother-ease starter pack and nursing pads!
