back to basics~~~ monday mayhem
 
we are basic folks. we chat about lots of stuff and are a friendly bunch. we mostly use pfs, wool and cheap stuff. so if you want to stop in and say hi, we welcome you.

they girls went to bed late, so shouldnt they have slept in??? :headscratch: oh well, at least that means a good nap.

wotb. a plain ubpf w a wine soaker(the only one that fits right now)

There are a lot of mamas and WAHM who are so much better seamstresses than me, but they can't find the sweaters I do! And I only get 100% wool ones, because I could never remember which ones are not otherwise. If I was open to blends or cashmere, acrylics I could have even more to choose from. I have just as many soakers and half a dozen hats too.

I've got a small stack of summer weight sweaters I need to make longies, shorties, and soakers out of too. I love to use the super thin silky merino wool sweaters for this. I probably get asked the most about this one, which uses the same kind of sweater:

The wool is literally as thin as a tshirt and works beautifully as summer weight with a thick diaper, or under any longies that would otherwise not be nightworthy or carseatworthy.

So ladies, if you can sew at all or know someone who can, stuff like this can be yours inexpensively

yes thats beautiful - put me inline cherly for manpris for the summer out of that kind of wool- nb sized ;)

Obviously this was not for my son, it was for someone else's DD in a trade. One of the first skirtypants I did, so I didn't know you are supposed to put elastic in them (oops). But it looks expensive, right? Only because of the sweater.

:drool:

Need some opinions......

I have some Mutts that I :wub: and some pockets that I :wub:, the problem is I don't use them. Should I sell them or hang onto them just cause?
