This weekend was a busy one filled with minor home renovations, reorganization and a little bit of relaxing.
I put in a little time knitting and a little more time cutting up fabric squares for the I-Spy Swap. I am half done the swap squares and I've run out of on hand fabric so a trip to the fabric store is definitely in order!
I finished knitting 2 hats (one gift, one to keep) and I'm finishing up a pair of Robeeze type booties to go with the gift hat as well. I just want them done so I can move on (French Press Slippers for me!)
We watched two movies this weekend. The new Alice in Wonderland and The Blind Side. I liked them both! Alice was beautiful. You could pause the movie at any given second and the frame would be perfect and gorgeous and beautiful. I love that!
This weekend we bought a few things at a neighbours moving sale. A ladder, some kids books, and these drawer units:
There are 3 drawer units in all. The first photo shows 2 of them stacked. They need a little TLC but I think they are going to be great for storing fabric flat and relatively unwrinkled.
I started painting one of them already and it looks a million times better.
Here are the books we got too:
I'm excited about finding some Robert Munch Books in french. I LOVE Robert Munch. He is a Canadian children's book author. Do my friends in the States know about Robert Munch? He's the best, you should check him out. I think he has over 40 kids books. I was reading his early books when I was very young and he's still writing books now.
Why am I "Knitting a Baby?" well, technically I'm not. I am preparing for a baby in the near(ish) future, and since knitting for a baby is way less stressful, I'll blog about both! I am currently expecting my first child, due in July, 2011. I'm very excited to share the experience with you!
I am 29 and a wife and already a "mama" to lots of pets (4 cats and 2 dogs).
