I've been busy

I've been doing a million things, but I feel like I haven't made much progress. I got some teal blue and olive green diapers and shirts dyed up but am having trouble getting the excess dye out of them. I got most of the woolies waterproofed, and they are drying. I got a flannel fitted sheet made for the co-sleeper. I shut down the "sewing room" and got our dining room back.

Mom asked for a couple dishcloths for a friend, so I made those Monday. She's also told me what she wants for Christmas (knitted wrist warmers), so I am in the middle of making them. I got some custom orders put in through Etsy for other Christmas gifts. I am going to try really hard to give all handmade gifts this year. I also have some yarn coming for a felted handbag that will be a gift too. I have a feeling I won't be knitting much between the end of August and Christmas, so I am doing what I can now.

Today I scrubbed the kitchen counter tops with a toothbrush. I still have a million cleaning projects I'd love to get to. I can't see what the last crazy project is. The day before Mary was born I scrubbed out the under sink kitchen cabinet with a toothbrush. It was so cramped under there and it took all my energy. Funny.

Going to the doctor tomorrow. I'll try to update tomorrow afternoon.

Hey...this is Melissa, a.k.a "Alaina's mom" back in Evansville. I just wanted to say hi and let you know I enjoy reading your blog! I have been nesting, too, but I know I won't get near as much done as you!! Good luck with everything now and when the baby arrives!
