Well, today is really rainy outside so I decided to do some sewing. I went ahead and added some stuff to my prefolds. I have ordered more diaper making material and I'm hoping it comes today so I can work on some of my other diapers. Katie (the baby doll), was kind enough to model these prefolds for us :)
Crappy picture :(
Mycah wanted to take a picture so he took one of Trin and Katie.
Well, this was my first time dying something. I got my preemie prefolds yesterday and thought I would try my hand at dying them. I ordered them unbleached so I think the colors might would have been a little more vibrant had they been bleached. Anyways, for my green ones I tried dying them in the sink which didn't go to well. The drain in my sink had a slow leak so I kept loosing my water. So I kept having to add water plus they didn't get to soak for a whole hour. For my blue ones I decided to try them in the washing machine as some other people I read about had done. It was much easier and my diapers got a much more even color dying them in the washing machine. I will definitely be using that method from now on. All in all I'm really pleased with how they both turned out (I didn't think my greens would be this good). I am hopefully gonna do a few more embellishing to them, but we will see. Shane was impressed with how good they looked and couldn't believe I had dyed them.
I think the colors a little off in the photos vs RL
Well, Karina had a post about what do you see from your kitchen sink. She also challenged us not to clean the area first. So this is what I see when standing at my sink. Usually my counter isn't that cluttered, but pregnancy is slowing me down. I don't think I see to much. I do get to see out to my living room which I like. When we moved in there was a wall here with cabinets, but my hubby knocked it out and put a counter there so the rooms would feel more open. I like it
Here is Trin's quilt top. On my anniversary my hubby surprised me with a surprise trip to Joann's to go shopping. While I was there I saw this princess fabric I thought would be great for Trin. So I decided to make it into a quilt. Shane was so wonderful walking around and looking a everything with me and helping me pick out fabric and other goodies. This wasn't what I originally intended for Trin's quilt, but I am pleased. It is a very basic pattern, but worked out good since I don't have much energy in me right now.
In response to a post from Karina at Karina's Krafts I have posted a pic of my favorite coffee cup. It is actually a cup that comes from her. She sent this coffee cup along with some other goodies one Christmas and it has been my favorite ever since. I always get to think of her when I use my cup. And with the cold weather coming and hot chocolate season approaching I will have lots of time to think of her :)
