To-Do List

  1. Start weaning Hula Girl (like, immediately).
  2. Make a pillow.
  3. Make some napkins.
  4. Make placemats and a table runner.
  5. Actually sit down and write a blog post longer than 11 sentences.
  6. Weed the garden.
  7. Harvest some more veggies from the garden (photo tomorrow).
  8. Go grocery shopping.
  9. Write thank you notes for Hula Girl’s birthday gifts.
  10. Cook dinner.

Some of these might be out of order, but that’s how my brain thought it through.

    Weaning officially commenced- and successful! She took 5ish oz of whole milk (and would have taken more) to replace a nursing this afternoon. There is a light at the end of this tunnel.

    Hey, this is just like my list except for the weaning and gardening. Don’t have a garden right now, sadly. Congrats on number 1 success so far!

      Kristy- sorry it took me so long to reply. I thought you were going to have a garden this year? Did your move change that? What about some potted things? What kinds of crafts are you making for your house? I’d love to see some of the things you’re doing!

        Hmmmm, did I say that about a garden? I can’t remember! I do want to do some plants and flowers but have not started planning b/c of all the things having to do with the move that are higher priority. Last year we experimented at our old place and that was really fun and picturesque. 🙂 I think I will be doing potted things if nothing else. For the house, napkins (sewn), napkin rings (knitted), a possible table runner (knitted), tablecloths (sewn), possible pillow cases (sewn), more dish towels and dishcloths (knitted), and aprons (sewn) are on my list. First I have to finish the summer sweater I’m knitting and get a sewing machine. I have done lots of sewing research but starting sewing is my HUGE project for the year, that and knitting a whole dress. Do you sew? Knit? Anything else? I’ve knit a lot of toys that were really fun and kind of easy to do, but not as durable as the store-bought kind.

        I am loving experimenting here. If it doesn’t work out, oh well! We’re moving in the middle of the winter, anyway! 🙂

        I do sew- but not very well. I am doing a lot of projects just to get my feet wet. Last Christmas I gave some napkins and placemats to my parents and parents-in-law. They were definitely “Handmade and You Can Tell!” but that’s ok! I just finished a pillow. Oh my goodness, I can’t wait to post a picture of this pillow. Thanks for reminding me!

        Have you ever done napkin rings with pvc pipe or paper towel roll tubes? They turn out really cute. You can choose your fabric, and it requires NO sewing- just mad glue-gun talent.

        I will be crocheting a lot of dish cloths. Jonathan and I realized just how many paper towels we go through, and I am sooooo tired of having to stock up. (I will be buying some, for the aforementioned idea, lol.) I’m also in the middle of crocheting a koala bear for Hula Girl, but I think I might give that up. I am just too “busy” to work on it.

    I am excited to start doing the same types of sewing projects in future. The napkin rings sound like a great idea! I knit a lot, but had never learned crocheting. Last week I learned a chain stitch to add to a knitted bow for a headband. It was great, but my effort definitely looked extremely clumsy. Oh well, practice makes (almost) perfect. 🙂
