Yesterday morning was very busy. I had a doctor appointment, big L had a dental appointment, and we had to stop at Costco on the way home because I did not want to drive all the way out there again this week. I did not expect it to be a productive day other than accomplishing the above mentioned tasks.
I did not receive good news from my doctor, so off to the ENT I go. Normally this would have put me into a spin an I would have used it as an excuse to relax for the day. While I have a horrible headache that does not seem to end, and a cough/sore throat that have been around since October I can't justify just sitting any longer.
So I got productive. This weekend I decided the pile of scraps waiting to be sewn together to make a rag rug, a la, Amanda Blake Soule and her book Handmade Home, would be sewn together. They are not equal, but hey, I am sure it will all work out in the end. Okay, I HOPE it will all work out!
I was going to make diaper covers this weekend, but it just didn't work out. Instead my hubby and and I cleaned out our closet (really cleaned, he even took the boxes to Goodwill already), and I made bread and muffins.
Yesterday afternoon I decided I was going to take the leap and make the diaper cover. So I started.....and FINISHED!!!! I am not the greatest seamstress. I would say I am an advanced beginner, but I did okay for the first try, I think.
Babyville Boutique. I like it okay, and if you have a coupon it is quite affordable, or at least less than buying a pre-made cover.
To top it all off Big L requested we make the cookie recipe out of the cookbook I gave her for x-mas. How could I say no? So we have pretty heart shaped sugar cookies in our home as well. Yesterday was a great day. :-)
