A little busy....
Things have been a little busy around here getting ready for Catherine Claire and doing other things around the house. Much progress has been made on her room.
If you recall before, clothes and other baby paraphanalia were scattered all around the room. Well, it now looks like this ~
Still not completely finished, but it is well on its way. Mom is sewing the baby bedding so that has to wait a bit, and I need to find a bookshelf and a rocker. I've got to scope that out around town. I put her big girl clothes in boxes under the crib which will be hidden by the dust ruffle. And, the rest of her clothes are in here -
My beloved pink (now white) dresser. I still need to get some nobs for the drawers so I can actually close them!
And yesterday I found her changing table for a whopping $65! I found it at Kids Wearhouse a children's consignment store. I got really lucky because as I was paying for it, some other woman wanted to buy it. Ha! We would have had to wrestle to the ground for it because it was a really good deal.
I went to SNB at the Yarnhaus last night and it was nice to see everyone since I had not been in forever! And, the fabulous Kathleen made Catherine Claire a cute little dress.
Is that not so darn cute?! It is from Debbie Bliss' Baby Knits for Beginners. I love it and I can't wait to see her in it. I think I might have the best dressed baby in Mobile (but then I'm a little biased!).
I got some work done on her jacket and then worked on it a bit this morning. It is a nice change of pace from her blanket.
I'm up to dividing for the front and back. Yippee! I really like how quickly baby knits go, but it will be nice to work on some big people clothes after awhile.
