Indulge me while I brag for a minute:
I finished the tiny hat from yesterday’s post, and Ella loves it. Technically I still need to weave in the ends, but Ella has not taken it off since I tried it on her this morning, so the weaving can wait. I tweaked a pattern I found online, and like how it came out, though I really need to learn to make icords. I’m thinking Cricket needs a matching hat.
I’m about a third of the way through coloring these mix&match people, and finished the felt plaything for them to stick to. This will make more sense once I can do a real writeup.
These fabrics are slowly becoming quilt blocks, which will be another baby quilt. Once I get this top finished, I am determined to take them all to the shop and quilt them in a day. I need to stop hoarding half finished quilts.
And – my kid freaking drew a picture of me! It’s easier to explain with notes on Flickr, but that big circle in the middle, with tiny legs, a squiggle in my belly, a crooked neck and a lumpy head? It’s me! You can see our usual family portrait down in the corner, which we draw (no joking) at least 25 times a day, and in an effort to hold Ella off for two minutes while I did something important (like check my email. Again.) I asked if she could draw mommy. And then? She did! Insane.
I got a haircut. I know, it’s nothing amazing, but it is five inches shorter, and on days when I put some effort into it, it actually looks like I put some effort into my appearance, which isn’t something I can say every day. Thank god for friends who cut hair.
Pregnancy update later, if this kid will stop making my eyes water. Hot damn.
