More Projects

Last Wednesday, Shawn had to go to Atlanta and pick something up and offered to take the girls with him. So I had a 4 hour break to myself. I loved it. Thanks Shawn! I was able to finish some small projects that go quickly with no kids - but would have taken double the time if the girls were around.

First, I finished sewing some burp clothes, or rather, enhanced burp clothes for our neighbor. They are having a little boy and I had fun making these. I think they turned out cute! Maybe someday I'll have a boy!With the extra material I made the girls little bean bags. I had extra pellets from our eye spy bags that we made last November. They love them and have fun "tossing" them around. It was fun pretending like I knew what I was doing.
Next - this one has been on my list for quiet a while. I finally got everything to make it. Isn't pretty?
What is it? A place to clip all of the girls bows and flowers....finally. I hung it in the bathroom and already need to make another one because this one is full. Does anyone have ideas how to store headbands?
My last project was making baby's binky clip. I didn't get a picture, but I had made our neighbor a "boy binky clip." I finally found sports beads - so his has blue beads with footballs, soccer balls, baseballs and basketballs. This is when I am glad we are having a girl - because I like making jewelry and it can be very girly, girly!
My list is running low on projects. I finally deep cleaned my room (I don't remember if I blogged about that) It was the last room in the house to be done - and if baby doesn't come soon, I'm going to have to deep clean them all again. My final big project is to HAVE THIS BABY!!! Everything else is ready to go!

It's so fun to create! I love the hairbow frame. I've been meaning to do that for a long time.

Jill said...

OK...what size is that hair bow frame? I so need to make one. Is it just a regular frame without the glass?? Glad summer time is here, I might start some projects like that! (not the baby stuff though) :)

Ahh, we are totally in the same place, trying to finish projects and fill our time. I LOVE the frame for the hair bows. I've been wanting to do something like that for awhile. All of Mara's clips are in a box in a drawer and I really want them out in the open now that we're going to have one more girl in the house.
Good luck with everything! I hope it all goes well ;)

Fun projects!!

My sister-in-law who has twin girls...Taylor and Jill...she has one of those door shoe storage things with clear plastic pockets. She clips bows to the top of the pockets and puts headbands and crocheted hats and such in the pockets. Her's is stuffed full! I love the frame and for overflow the pockets work, too! I'm wanting to do both with Reagan! Good luck and I hope this baby comes soon!! Any name picked out yet??

Can I send you some of my unfinished projects? Don't know when I"m ever going to get to them. Cute's amazing how quickly it gets filled up though.
