I found the easiest pattern on Ravelry for making booties. I've been able to size down without much problem too (always a plus). The pink booties are made from the last bits of a bamboo yarn - SO soft - but I think I'd like to try to make them smaller. I'll probably unravel them … Continue reading Yarn Along – Booties and Such

Thrift Store Onesies/Shirts to Infant Nightgowns
A few days ago I picked up a few onesies and things from the thrift store for $.25 each. I had found a tutorial online for making nightgowns out of them and thought it would be fun to try. I really like nightgowns because it makes diaper changing (especially at night) much easier. Plus they're … Continue reading Thrift Store Onesies/Shirts to Infant Nightgowns
The Image and Likeness of God
We were created in the image and likeness of God. Satan hates God. Satan hates us. He hates the image of God in us. That's why he does anything he can to destroy our knowledge that we are created this way. For instance: 1. Proponents of evolution (macro-evolution) try to teach that we are all … Continue reading The Image and Likeness of God
Oh ye of little faith…
One day about two weeks ago my youngest son proudly presented me with a picked zinnia. I knew exactly where he had gotten it because there was exactly one chance plant that had reseeded from last year near our back steps. I was upset he had picked it because it was just about to bloom. … Continue reading Oh ye of little faith…
Yarn Along: Some finished items

I've started on the next one and hope it will go quicker this time since I'm not feeling my way along. (I took notes so I could replicate it exactly.) I'm getting better at side … Continue reading Yarn Along: Some finished items
Spring Garden Quilt
Done and currently in the dryer. Duchess is looking forward to sleeping under it tonight.
Purple Butterfly Quilt
Ribby's quilt is done! I finished it last night and washed and dried it this morning. Now, to finish Duchess's quilt! Hopefully today.
This was a bit of an experiment because I knew I wasn't necessarily going to get the right size. One pattern (the fitted style) was "one size fits most" which looked huge so I made my own pattern based on it (but kept the original - I do expect baby to grow!). In general I … Continue reading First Covers…
Prefolds are easy!
I saw some photos of preemies wearing cloth diapers online. That's when I decided I'd better make some smaller ones. Yesterday at the thrift store I saw some faded flannel receiving blankets...marked $2 each!! Outrageous! I told the lady there that they were WAY overpriced and she let me have them for a quarter apiece. … Continue reading Prefolds are easy!
