I finished making blocks and laid them all out, but this first attempt has me feeling "meah." I think there are too many mustangs and jacks. I'm thinking I'll save some of the overall lighter blocks for the back and make some additional darker blocks.
This shot is mid-rearranging, hence a few blank spaces. Olivia in particular I find a bit hard on the eyeballs. What do you think?
And some old time - I've been meaning to do this for like 2 years - I'm going to rip the plastic bag off the frame of this IKEA laundry basket (I think you can still get this laundry basket for basically nothing at IKEA) and make a new bag for it. I'll make it detachable (velcro? buttons?) so I can wash it. I don't think it's ever going to be a very sexy laundry basket, but it's light and compact - it's a keeper in my book.
Step 1: Buy fabric.... check.
I'm not really a selvedge lover, but I kind of dig this one. Maybe I can do something with it...
Who doesn't want a laundry basket with a little bling?
On the back-to-work front; day 2 is complete. I'm busy already at my job. For some reason my to-do pile didn't shrink while I was on leave. Bummer.
For now, it's worth it to spend half the night getting the kids' and our own stuff ready for the morning and all set out. Breakfast, clothes, diapers, lunches, coffee. I'm supposed to be doing that now :D When I get more efficient at that stuff, maybe I can start to squeeze in some evening crafty fun.
