the week in review...

I have not updated my blog in over a week, but does that mean I have not been crafting? Oh, no! Of course not! Here's a summary of this week's projects...

first, the "mini tai"...
I made a small mei tai this week. I saw a post on www.thebabywearer.com where a woman had made a small MT, with a narrow seat so that her young infant could sit down on her bottom and not have her legs "froggied." Since our Hancocks is going out of business and I stocked up on some cute MT fabric, I thought I'd give it a try for my (anticipated to be) small foster babies. Here's the result. I just love it!



I have loaned it to a 'pin friend with a one month old boy who does not like any of his current carrier options. I can't wait to see it in action!

second, speaking of the Hancock's going out of business sale...
I have chosen the fabric I want to use on a crib skirt and hopefully a curtain in the foster babies' room. I've bought as much of it as my two Hancocks have, and Lamar is checking the one in College Station to see if I can get my hands on any more. Here's a swatch...



Picture it with pale robin's egg blue walls. Cute, huh?

and finally, a bitty bootie baby gift....

for my friend Katie from church. I love bitty booties! Oh, and inside the package are some fun board books--a girl's got to be scholarly as well as stylish, you know!
