Baby Making

I was inspired by the talented mmmcrafts adorable plush taggie. The pattern is by the also talented, Chez Beeper Bebe. You gotta love the inspiration out in blogland. It's a virtual land of fun. We're getting a new baby girl (Mia) in the family next month and I'm a tad excited! Now I want to make burp pads. I need to get some padded cloth diapers.

I'm giving Mia this little quilt I made with Anna Maria Horner's Chocolate Lollipop collection. I think it will make the perfect picnic pad, beach or down by the lake quilt. The dark backing should hold up pretty well to our outdoor lifestyles. I need to make a label and give it a wash.

Look what my swap partner sent me. Isn't it adorable? I don't know why Bones wouldn't look at me. Probably embarrassed to be in a photo shoot in the front yard. He has a rep in this hood as being the meanest thing on four little, squatty legs. The miniature quilt is by the talented Rochelle. She blogs at Three Turns to Home. I've used talented three times in the first two paragraphs. Somebody buy me a thesaurus.

I watched two movies today. "50/50" is the drama with Seth Rogan and the kid from "3rd Rock from the Sun." It was sad. Made me cry. If you Red Box, use the code BREAKROOM to score a free movie this week.

The second movie was "Idiocracy." Funny, I had to look up the title as I'm watching, sewing, and computing at the same time. I have laundry going too. ;) This movie is really odd. Definitely defines idiocracy.

Here's the Wiki definition:
Idiocracy is a 2006 American film, a satirical science fiction comedy, directed by Mike Judge and starring Luke Wilson, Maya Rudolph, Dax Shepard, and Terry Crews.
The film tells the story of two ordinary people taken into a top-secret military hibernation experiment to awaken in a dystopia wherein advertising, commercialism, and cultural anti-intellectualism run rampant and dysgenic pressure has resulted in a uniformly stupid human society devoid of intellectual curiosity, social responsibility, and coherent notions of justice and human rights.
Despite its lack of a major theatrical release, the film has achieved a cult following.

Gotta run, the dryer buzzer just went off. Isn't it odd that after 14 years, I still startle and/or jump when that dang thing buzzes? Maybe I like to forget I'm doing laundry. Let's hope I didn't just jinx my 14-year-old dryer.


  1. Oh Chele, I think baby mia is going to be one lucky little girly with all the pretties your making. And the fabric line you used on the little baby mat is really petty.

    "Got Bones"?! That is such a special little quilt. It is soooo vry like your little "Bones". It's just darlin.

  2. Michele, I will say your title caught my attention! Love the plush taggie thing. It's so cute, I had to go off and bookmark the tutorial. Your baby quilt is so pretty for a new little girl. Let me know if you run across any equally cute boy quilts...having a hard time finding those. How fun is that Got Bones? mini?!!!!


I would love to hear from you. Comments make my day!
