CREATION

Spring/Summer sends me on a creation crusade. 
There's something about the season that makes me want to be creating something new or transforming something yuck in to something better...
It's nice. 

I made some Veggie Chili yesterday. 
It's normally a winter meal for us, but I had a craving for it - and boy was it good!

I tried my hand at making cloth diapers today. 
I have made 3 sucessfully. 
1 for Ethan, and 2 for Evie. 
I only have pictures of Ethan in his right now, but I will post some soon of Evie. 
I made Ethan's out of recycled clothing - Karl's sweatshirt and my old little black dress. 
It's actually my own design. Totally made it up myself. I completely surprised myself in making it not only functional but not half-bad looking. 
When I take pictures of Evie's I'll show you the inside. 
But, on the inside there are what we're calling "soakers" aka rectangular pieces of fabric layered, and sewn together. 
I put a piece of elastic going cross-wise (horizontally) over the crotch to hold them in, and then put a soaker on top of that to protect their "who-has" as we call them. hah. 
If you can't picture it, I'll show it tomorrow. 
(I am also adding velcro instead of pins)
