Thanks to the sun finally coming out after days of torrential rainfall I was able to get my camera out and take some pictures of these aprons I made a month or so ago. I also took some pictures of the blankets that I finished last night. Other than that I didn't get much done. My next project is making a pouch sling out of some cool Michael Miller fabric. I made my first sling this weekend using some black fleece and it worked out great, I even made an online friend one with the leftover material. I'm thinking about making a diaper bag out of the Michael Miller material and have a pattern in my head but I'm a little worried the material might be to busy for a bag.

I might have figured out the trick of getting Callin to take a long nap in the afternoon. Yesterday his long nap came right after dinner but then he woke up more frequently during the night. So today I laid down with my 2 year old and Callin. Luckily Cade my 2 year old was tired so he was "for once" pretty easy to get down and while he was stroking my hair (a habit and routine he aquired from birth that puts him to sleep) I nursed Callin till he fell asleep. Then while wedged in between the 2 I watched the rest of my soap opera and when that was over I snuck out of the bed and got some stuff done. Hopefully it works tomorrow.......stay tuned....

Really easy to make.
