Nesting part 2

Here are some of the other projects that I have done in the last two weeks. We are forever short on bibs, especially when we have company, so I made 8 more. I traced the ones that Zac's grandmother, Grammy, made for the girls and used some of the fat quarters that his other grandmother, Omah, gave me the last time we went to visit. Brings the total up to around 14, surely they can never all be in the wash right? Thankfully, Zac has been helping with the house stuff because its not in my nesting insticts at all :) The paintings are the hot air balloons that Tilly commissioned for Tony's room. Will paint for fabric ;) And the birds were Charlotte's idea. She saw them on the front of one of my quilting magazines and asked if we could make them. So we called Tilly to invite them to join us and for some supplies. Tilly and I spent all morning making six birds (one for each of the little girls and one for Tony) and Charlotte and Jenny got to help stuff them. Great fun! Of course there is more to come in the next few weeks, baby clothes are all washed and ready so what else do I have to do right ;)

Nesting part 1

Some people clean excessively, apparently I create more and more projects :) I've been working on some stuff to fix up the girls room. So far Charlotte is the only one to sleep there but we call it the girls room because that's where the toys are and Zoey will move in there eventually. I think everything that I want to do in there is done with the exception of Charlotte's big girl quilt. I almost have it completely tied and hope to finish the binding and get it on her bed by this weekend. I'll worry about Zoey's when we move her in. But I do have a lot of the fabric left so I can make them coordinate.

I think just about everything in there was made by a family member and I love all the colors together. I did the owl picture and Zoey's name. My sister gave us the letters and flowers all ready to go for Charlotte's name. Charlotte and I did the paper chain (yes, it goes all the way around the room). My dad built the doll bed and kitchen set. And Zac's grandfather, Opah, built the bed.

Learning the art of pretend

Charlotte has been playing with Jenny and Zelie over the past few days. Jenny and Zelie play "Dora", ie Jenny is Dora and Zelie is Diego. So when they have Charlotte too apparently she is Swiper. Yesterday Jenny and Charlotte were playing dressup and decided that they were both Cinderella. I will post pictures because they were by far the funniest Cinderella's I have ever seen. Charlotte was just reading to her babies and Zoey and looked up at me and said "Mommy I'm Cinderella Swiper" like it was one name...
