Sick day

I'm sick with tonsillitis but have been well enough to do a few rows of crochet and even a little bit of sewing. I even have a-sewing-needle-through-my-finger injury to show for it. I was rushing because I could hear Erin starting to wake up from her nap. OUCH! Lesson learned - don't rush!

My little sister is pregnant! And has requested a crochet baby blanket like this one I made for Erin. Trouble is, she doesn't know if she's having a boy or a girl so I'm making 2. This rainbow one is for a girl baby and is inspired by Tracey's. I'm very excited I get to be an auntie! And I'm very pleased to be handing on the baby making responsibilities to someone else in the family.

I finished my version of Soulemama's picnic blanket yesterday using the fat quarters I scored in the vintage sheet fat quarter swap. Just in time for sports day and perfect for outside tummy time.

Which, by the way, Erin gets very little of. I fail to understand why I would want to turn a perfectly happy baby into a perfectly unhappy baby within the space of a few seconds? I like my babies happy thanks very much and anyway apparently babies in cultures who get no tummy time start walking at the same time our babies start walking. And non-walking babies are much easier to locate anyway.

My illness has coincided nicely with the arrival of some new reading material and even some interesting day time tv. What a great book! And Pip is so normal. And nice. Like someone I would be friends with in real life except exponentially craftier. Which is quite inspiring really.

I also finished re-reading Dooce's book It Sucked and Then I Cried about her battle with PND. Last time I read it I had PND so it was nice to read it and laugh instead of read it and cry. Can I just say that again? NO PND! I can't quite believe it myself but I'm very thankful I get to enjoy this time with Erin and our family.
