Oh yes I did
Thank you for your sweet words. I definitely think something like an on call nanny is the way to go, but I have to figure out how to actually hire an on call nanny. Ugh.
I bought another quilt at a yard sale on Friday.
Is anyone else starting to wonder how many of these I own at this point? I think I am afraid to count.
This is my most favorite quilt pattern ever. I searched for years and years for one I could afford. I bought one on Ebay a few years ago and never expected to find another one to call my own.
Then there she was. Shining at me from the street like a beacon.
I didn't really spend a lot of time examining it, so I thought it was in way worse shape than it really is.
But when she refused to negotiate on the price I knew I was buying it anyway.
Every single flower has the most amazing prints. And I think less than 5 of the flowers have been lost to shattering. The edges have been rebound at some point, but so what?
Fabulous I tell you.
And fussy cut.
And pretty in pink. (The outside is a pale yellow, the sun is too bright right now for good photos.)
I also bought this beautiful little bonnet.
Which opens up to reveal a sweet needle case (the bonnet part is holding bobbins of thread).
And the tiniest (perfectly pale pink) buttons I have ever seen.
I have a DIY to show you this week, another amazing flea market find, and a sweet gift for Sam. Hopefully I can pull off some blogging.
*Even though we are so close to baby time I broke down and bought myself some decent shirts yesterday. My maternity clothes are getting so short and so holey it is looking like people of wal-mart in here. THAT is not helping me at all. I should probably get a haircut too.
** I also bought every single Halloween magazine in Costco. Hey, a girl can dream, right?
