Saturday 13 January 2007,
I thought that I would show off a few things that I found in Wagga this week. I had a OB appointment and went thrifting and spotlighting.
The first photo is 2 patterns that I am hoping to be clever enough to make and some fabric. There is 1 mtr each of this flannel fabric with little rockets all over it in 2 different colours, also a doona cover with one side stripes and one side circles that I thought would make a great set of PJ's for hospital. There is also a bag pattern that I got from spotlight that has a change pad and 2 smaller purses with 5 different bags that I will have to now choose which one to make as my nappy bag. I also got some great red denim for making the bag (forgot to put it in the photo).
The second photo is just a small taste of all this baby stuff that a lady I know has given me. She had her 2nd baby about 15 months ago and said I could have her nappies but then she sends me 13 flat nappies, pilchers galore and this huge brown bag that is full of clothes. I could only fit a small amount into the picture. I am so lucky that I live in a community where people do things like that. Living in the country is just wonderful. I have made a committment to only use cloth nappies. I have a few fitted ones and some flannel and terry flats that I thought I may try making some fitteds out of some.
Even though we are on tank water I cannot bring myself to use disposables. Hopefully I can stick to that resolution when bub comes along. People keep telling me to use disposables when I go out but honestly what is the difference, you still have to change the baby and I can take a nappy home and wash it just as easily. I have a front loader and instructions on dry pailing so here's hoping.
*****HAPPY BIRTHDAY JIMMY******
My little brother turned 29 on 12 January and has gone up to Baltimore to spend the weekend with Mary. Hope he has a wonderful birthday. We are thinking of him.
