OMG  Shocked

I love this idea!  Making good choices with my time instead of getting caught up in negative self talk and mindless tv watching.  I have to make one for myself. 

Thanks for the great inspiration.   Grin

Has anyone diagrammed this pattern?  I have hard time following a written pattern, but I can follow a diagram.   Smiley
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Cloth pads... yay! on: January 21, 2008 09:09:25 PM
I have been using cloth pads for 4 years now and I will never go back.  I ventured into this idea after I developed a contact allergy to the plastic backing used in disposables.  Personally I don't use PUL because I find I don't need it, even though I consider my flow to be on the heavy side. 

I would encourage anyone thinking about using non-disposables to try it out.  If you check out cloth diapering sites, you can find a wealth of information. 

My experience:  I made a sleeve type 'holder' and 'filler' pads out of cotton flannel.  The filler pads are 4 layers and I use two most days.  On lighter days I can wear one inside the holder.  I just sewed up some all-in-one pads and although they have the advantage of being easier to clean and dry--they don't have the absorbency I personally need. 

My advice:  Give it a shot--cut up an old flannel shirt and practice.  You might find you love them as much as I do!

Gah, they keep the crazies just for ratings!  I swear!

I'm sure they will off her as soon as her natural-earth-infused-cascade-of-infusion design aesthetic gets tired.

Wow!  That inspiration piece is a sight!  Ouch! 
You are amazing for being able to see such a great FO from that.

And in general you rock!   Smiley

I would put up (home canning) some hot pepper jelly. 

To give you some ideas look here:

Spaghetti and meatballs. 

My thrifty recipe is a can of store bought sauce, can of stewed tomatoes, and a can of tomato paste.  I mix a pound of ground meat, an egg, spices, and enough rolled oats to soak up the moisture.  When the sauce is simmering I drop small balls of meat into the sauce and simmer for about 40 minutes.  Meanwhile the noodles cook. 

Smiley Easy Cheap and Yummy!

Freezer Cooking Hint:  I usually double the recipe and freeze the leftovers.  Buy the cheapest brand of freezer snap-lock bags, not the ones with the zipper slide--they don't seal as well.  And the extra money for thicker plastic bags are worth the expense.  I use a sheet pan in the freezer and lay the food flat.  When it is frozen I can set them upright and flip through them like a card catalog.  Also, they defrost quicker being flat.

I think cotton would be more absorbant.  Which is good for drool-ey babies.  awww.  babies.  Smiley

What a great idea!  I think I might need a felted crochet WIP bag. 

BTW, I love the colors.
