Monday, Monday

The beginning of another week means . . . more projects to work on, more house cleaning, more meals to plan. It is already after noon and I seem to be having problems with procrastination. Well, maybe not. I talked with my wonderful friend on the phone for quite a while, then I skyped daughter in Germany, then I checked my email to find two responses to potential jobs. I cleaned part of my bathroom and now am writing. Sooo, maybe I haven't really been procrastinating.
Last week I was experimenting with more baby stuff. Here are some photos of baby pants and "soakers". Daughter Diane is thinking about using cloth instead of disposable diapers and I had some PUL fabric that I was experimenting with. I sent her the brown one so she can decide if she likes it.
When my children were babies, I used cloth diapers with "rubber pants". I had a neighbor who told me she enjoyed looking out of her window and seeing all my diapers hanging on the clothesline. I used to bleach the heck out of those things - AND many were accidentally flushed down the toilet. By the time number 8 & 9 came, I told my husband my time was too valuable to be washing diapers and sticking my babies with diaper pins. We certainly have come a long way since then!!!

The PUL fabric shown is from Babyville Boutique by Prym. Riley Blake Fabrics also have a fair amount of cute PUL fabric. I really like the Babyville Boutique Fold Over Elastic. It was sooo easy to put these together!

In between playing with baby stuff, I made Hannah an apron. Her kitchen colors are yellow and black.

 Well, I must get to my housework and sewing. Just want to leave you with this little smile:
