I do love the hood compared to the sleeping support (its been awhile, cant remember what its called). This has the great sun coverage aspect.. especially if treated with that fabric-sunblocking stuff (its way too early to remember what things are called, haha). Definately like this!
12  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: How to wrap diaper wreaths? on: September 14, 2009 04:54:58 AM
Both diaper wreathes I've given were displayed also.. and for months after baby was born (I use 6 month size diapers, and the gifts/clothes attached are all appropriate for a 6 month old baby so that it can be appreciated for awhile, then taken apart to appreciate/use the seperate components)...

What I do, is actually attach a set of baby coat hangers to the back, so they form a hook to hang it up, and are then useful later.. I just tie them on with the same curling ribbon I use to attach the decorations/gifts. I also did this on a blank wreathe I made.. I just did the diapers and decorative ribbon for a coworker, who then went off and attached gifts/socks etc, and gave it to her daughter inlaw.

I'm absolutely in love with this! I don't crochet personally, but my mum can.. and I showed her this and she said its within her skill level, so should be able to make me one.
If at all possible could you dig out the book details? maybe its ISBN? I'm not sure how successful I'll be at getting my hands on it here in Australia, but I can try. Otherwise.. I'm sure we can figure out how to wing it.. does the large version have all 50 stars in the 9 rows like the official flag? I can't quite tell by the pictures, though I can count the 13 stripes. The pictures give a really good indication of how the afghan is formed actually.. Good work!
15  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: baby shower cards...what to write on: June 01, 2009 06:36:21 AM
Like workinIt says, with beautiful elaborate cards like those, you could easily just write something simple like 'Congratulations on your new baby!' or 'Its a girl!' etc.

I usually go with nice quotes about babies when I make New Baby cards.. some of my faves are:

A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on - Carl Sandburg

A new baby is like the beginning of all things-wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities - Eda J. Le Shan

A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for - Anonymous

Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body - Elizabeth Stone

.. and theres always lots more available online, just search for things like 'baby quotes' and you can generally find lots of inspiring baby quotes.
16  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: Sister-in-laws, and baby gifts. on: June 01, 2009 06:29:23 AM
The practical part of me says... get them what they'll appreciate.. and since the sister in law won't appreciate handmade gifts, its really no use making them for her... Or maybe buy a main present, and make something small.. but make gifts for the sister who would love them. I know its not always that simple though!
 Maybe, since the sister in law lives further away, you could justify buying them a gift voucher (if finances allow) to send with a small gift (decorated onesie or such).. and bulkier handmade gifts for the sister who lives nearby.
Maybe.. if shes snobby like you say, she'll think she got the better end of the deal getting brought gifts instead of handmade ones.

Great cupcakes (I like to celebrate everything with cupcakes too).

And congratulations! Those are important types of milestones to celebrate.. Hell, at some point I've needed to celebrate getting through a single day, and the next, and the one after that. But thats why its important to recognise the achievement in doing so. Sounds like you have good friends Smiley
18  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: No-Tie... Mei-Tai (img &word hvy) on: July 13, 2008 02:49:11 AM
Great thinking! (As long as you were using proper weight bearing sling-rings of course).

Somewhere in the back of my mind I'm remembering a tie variation (on thebabywearer.com) for a normal mei-tai that looks very similar.....  I think some special knot was used to make loops out of the waist straps which were then threaded with the shoulder straps and tied... thus making it a similar carry to onbuhimos yes, but able to be done with a normal mei-tai. (good for the budget! haha)..

Great work Smiley

thanks for the helps guy, sorry for not getting back sooner!

All 4 bags got done for our 4 day holiday, and worked perfectly! I was soooo proud. I've got pics of mine, for now, since I havent taken any of all of them.. I will though!

I must admit, I didnt find this too bad, thinking that maybe if I'd not made 4 at once it wouldnt have been that bad, haha.. Will post the others at some point.
