I am finally 37 weeks prego with number 3. I think my way of nesting is by obsessivly knitting! I can't stop myself...and it doesn't matter what I'm knitting I just have to have at least one or two projects going. Hats have been my newest obsession. But, this last week I went to a baby shower for a friend and so I couldn't help but make up this cute little cupcake set. She doesn't even cloth diaper but I know it will still get some wear!

I was contacted last week by a local mom who was desparatly seeking longies, fast...she purchased a few pairs from me when we met downtown and then asked for a custom order. A few days ago she sent me a message with the specifics. Well, let's just say this is some serious FLUFF! I love it! I haven't made such girly longies ever! And, they fit right in with the Ooga Booga mania that seems to have swept the cloth diapering community off it's feet! Check them out...I think I'm gonna have to make some for my new (mystery) baby.

I love being contacted by fellow cloth diapering enthusiasts (weird I know:). Anyway, a little while ago I had the privilage of meeting a lovely Christian mom named Margaret who blogs and does reviews. I was originally contacted by a friend of hers who does reviews and was doing a special segmant on bamboo products for baby. But the timing wasn't right as we were leaving for summer project and I wouldn't be able to take advantage of any bump in business. Margaret was sweet enough to do a review on my diapers recently and show them off to her readers! Here is the review: http://cherryblossommj.blogspot.com/2009/10/clothdiapers-woollybums-review.html. Check it out!! It makes me feel so official:)

I started these last winter and just finally finished them up! For some reason it takes me forever to get things finished when I have to sew buttons or do a fringe or something like that. I just procrastinate! But the boys LOVE these and have been having "snake fights" with each other and dad constantly. It's fun to have them like something I make! The snake's tongue makes him look a little like a fire breathing dragon...but oh well. I was a little afraid that they would be itchy but they're not at all so that's lucky I guess. I plan to make a few more for the other guys (nephews etc.) for Christmas. They're pretty quick and easy. The tweed gives them a fun effect too! Mark thinks I should make a hat that looks like a snake swallowing your head and call it the 'I'm being eaten by a boa constrictor' hat...you know that poem? It's one of those morbid poems that we all grew up reading.
