- I finished the cot quilt. It’s obviously the product of a beginner, but I’m pleased nonetheless, with how it turned out. I’ve enjoyed having it on my lap whilst handstitching. It’s nice and warm.
- I have a new nappy bag. I’ve been using the old faithful Kapoochi bowling bag for 4.5 years and recently the snaps broke that clip the handle to the stroller. So that bag has been left stocked with disposables supplies and left permanently in the main car. My new nappy bag will be the one I use regularly and will be easily retired out of nappy carrying use in a year or two. I bought it from CafePress.
I love Charlie & Lola. My only beef is …given it’s a BBC show the Americans could stay true to the British spelling of ‘favourite’. I do still love it and may embellish it with some handpainted Lola butterflies.
- I bought some new jeans. I’ve always bought Jeans at Jeans West. Once I find comfortable, reasonably priced jeans I stick with the program. I went back there this week to buy the trusty old women’s button-fly in whatever style it was available in. Bitter disappointment. The button-fly is no more. I don’t trust zippers in jeans. Of course, everything seems ok, for a while. And then the zipper stops going all the way up, or is comes back down at random. Let’s not forget that everything only comes in hipster style these days, too. Call me old-fashioned but I don’t like my ass-crack hanging out when I bend over to put on my shoes, or pick up a child. Dejected but determined, I came away with two pairs of zipper fastening, hipster, Boyfriend style jeans. Prove me wrongs, zippers. I dare you.
