Thing-a-Day, Post-a-Week  

So, I'm doing Thing-a-Day again this year, but instead of posting daily in both places, I will be posting daily there and weekly here. Anyone with sufficient interest can watch more closely at http://thingaday2012.wordpress.com/author/eithni/

The first week was all about the bebes. Days 1, 2, 3, 6, and 7 were all repairs to diaper covers. Boring, annoying, necessary work for a friend. At 3 per day and about 40 minutes on each, I don't really want to think about how much time I spent in the service of poo containment this week.

Day 4 was also for a bebe, but a different one. I made Miss Em a set of Viking bling - necklace and dress baubles - from glass beads on a cotton cord, knotted between each bead for security.

Day 5 was a linen Norse cap for me - handsewn, of course. It's of the normal rectangle-of-white linen sort, so I'll not bore you with a picture here. Pics on the TaD blog, if you really care.

That is a beautifully blinged out baby!

As far as poop containment goes, just think about poop not messing up nice outer layers!

Any chance you could pretty please repost that Pictish coat PDF in the midst of all this? That friend I told you about would love to get cutting! :)

It's in the library -

Just use the Pictish Gown pattern, cut it extra-large, and split it down the front.
