Some utility stitching11:01 a.m.
Ernest has been wearing disposable nappies (Shock horror!) for several months now. I don't like them, they smell funny, they don't work terribly well, they create so much waste, but I've been struggling with the laundry mountain, and Ernest is the wriggliest of all my children when it comes to nappy changes, my beloved terry nappies are a disaster with such a wriggler.
I prefer cloth nappies, and it does seem rather odd that as a former nappy designer I should have my Ernie in disposables, so yesterday I set about using up the last of my nappy making fabrics to make him some Tiddlybums, which I guess these days might be considered pretty retro. (they were afterall designed nearly 10 years ago!)
My last pieces of burley knit terry and killington flannel, all gone, which makes me feel slightly on edge...I'm sure other fabric addicts reading might understand that.
I still have about 2000 Tiddlybums labels to use up...ideas of what to do with them on a postcard please!
Hoping Ernest will oblige with a good long nap today so I can finish these nappies and make room for more interesting stitching.
I also whipped up four new pairs of wool longies from Grandad's old golf sweaters.
Ernest is wearing a pair today (over a disposable), I did try to get a photograph, but the results are all rather blurry...
He's fast up those stairs!
