I'm crocheting a pink afghan in my spare time these days. And I'm wondering what she will be like...the one who will be wrapped in the blankee. It's a girl...that's all I know.
Big sister Maggie is going to be getting a new bedroom...all mauves and greens and whites. She is quite excited about that! It's quite a large room...with space for a chair. Hmmm. The blue and white chair that Heidi bought at a garage sale for $5 for her first apartment back in the nineties was the right size...just not quite the right shade.
We found some fabric (of unknown fibers) in the clearance bin and for an additional $5, Maggie will have a chair with a bit of mauve and a hint of green. I hoping this is the last time I recover that chair!
Heidi commissioned me to do another renovation job for her...that of making jeans that would fit comfortably for the next few months.
Finding maternity jeans when one has very long legs is a bit of a challenge. So she brought me some jeans that fit from the hip down...and I followed a wonderful tutorial to make her some comfy, fitted jeans. One old cotton/spandex T-shirt made the panels for two pairs of jeans. After being resigned to wearing 'crop pants' for the next while...Heidi is enjoying her new, tall jeans.
All that to say...we are thrilled to be having another grandgirlie joining the family this summer. Though summer seems a very long time away...she will be here before we know it. And we will be ready!
