A QUICK SEW

One of my favorite baby things is the moses basket. It has come in handy with every child and its simplicity is stunning. Our basket had pink toile fabric and I really wanted to change it and I finally got around to it. It was the easiest thing to sew as I just sewed up a pillowcase shape for the cushion and it did the job. Now the basket has some pretty blue stripes and by the looks of it, Glow seems to approve of the little change.

Yesterday, was a day when some things got done. I got to sew for five minutes, we worked on reading and writing, there was lots of laying in bed, cuddling, and watching some movies, but maybe there was not so much math. Maybe today we will bake some cookies and the measuring will make up for it. It helped that Ben worked half day so he could take the two middles to the doctor for their physicals in the morning (it was him tweeting this picture). We also had lots of rain and I hope there are many more rainy days to come. A rainy day spent in bed watching movies is definitely a good day.

  5. Such a little bundle of cutie. Good job on your sewing project. It's hard enough to get any projects done, specially with little ones around.

  10. Oh Ruby,

  14. Where did you get your Moses basket? I've been looking for one, but they all seem bulky. Yours looks light and seems to let a lot of light through the weave. Let me know!

  18. Hi Ruby! LOVE your blog! I feel like I have a similar style in baby clothes, etc. I am not into the pink fru-fru and graphic loud clothes for them.

    I love the style your kids have, you can tell it is not just you telling them what to wear, but their own unique style!

    Also I am always so in love with the blankets you swaddle Glow in, where do you get them from?!

  19. She smiles lovely! And the basket is too.
