Pardon the delay...

I've had the flu and now my parents are in town so I'm on a bit of a hiatus.

Not that anyone cares ;)

Hopefully Caturday and Made It Monday will resume next week.

Bye, you few who read this!

They aren't joking when they say teething is difficult

My poor little girl is getting between two and four molars in at once.
She is miserable and refuses to let me forget it. And she's become a biter.

I have the sinus headache of doom from the rainy weather I guess, and can only take Tylenol for it because I am (surprise!) 9 weeks pregnant.

The pregnancy has given me a raging case of hypoglycemia that is being rather hard to handle... I have to eat constantly but I have no appetite because of the sinus headache.

To top it all off my parents will be here for ten days starting tomorrow and my boyfriend will be out of town for a week with work leaving me alone with them starting Monday.

Oh Happy Days.....

I'll have to make up for this post with some happy cheery baby pictures soon.

I changed my layout and somehow lost all my comments. I didn't even actually mean to change it, I thought I hit cancel after previewing :( It's very sad.

O hai!-- it's caturday again!

Black cats are notoriously difficult to take good pictures of, and Baku is no exception!

Squidhat anyone?

This is one of the funniest hats I've ever seen, made by ObeyMyBrain on Etsy.

Just thought I'd share :)

Tie dye panties! For Made It Monday!

Fun tie dyed panties! I dyed all my old white undies first and got annoyed at how the waist band didn't pick up the dye right, so I got these where the waistband is cotton covered elastic. I love how they turned out.

Happy Caturday!

In an effort to blog more I'm adding some weekly "themed" posts to my blog. The first two I'm trying are "Made it Monday" where I blog about things I made. The second one is this... Caturday!

What is Caturday? Why, gratuitous pictures of cats of course!

This is my kitten Curie cuddling with my baby last November. They were both about four months old.

Made it Monday! Baby tutus!

About a week ago I decided to finally try my hand at making a baby tutu, and I was amazed at how simple it was. I had glanced at several tutorials but really this doesn't need a tutorial.

Materials are simply 2+ yards of soft tulle (or a few spools of tulle, but I'm cheap and it's less expensive to get it by the yard), scissors, some elastic long enough to go around their waist and a needle and thread or sewing machine to join the ends of the elastic.

You simply take the elastic and sew the ends together at the right size to go around the baby's waist, take strips of tulle, double it up and knot it around the eleastic, and keep doing this until you have a full fluffy tutu.

Then you let your baby loose in the yard to frolic like a little fairy in your garden. ... or not.

Lorelei seemed to love her tutu. She kept running her hands through it and fluffing it up. Hooray for happy babies!

There are tons of tutorials online for tied tutu making. One decent one is here:
