Tuesday, Luke had occupational therapy with Ms.Dana. It was the third week in a row he was eating solid food & baby food, both from his "toothbrush" and from a spoon. He also learned how to drink from a straw on Thanksgiving, so he's been doing that for about a week now too! I think his days of OT are numbered! Yay!
Yesterday, Luke was in RARE FORM, he was just not having a good day at all. Although his sickies seem to be gone, he was cranky, fussy, and wouldn't eat well. Beth came over to help out so I could sew, but with Luke acting so rotten I wasn't able to get much more than cutting done. Oh well. At least I got the cutting out part done, I can' t do that when Luke is awake at all (he loves scissors!) so, every little bit counts!
I spent most of Tuesday & Wednesday shopping online for new woolies. I was selling the October Morning pants I had made for his birthday & I had a couple trades I was working out as well. The October Morning longies were on bulky gaia, a yarn that I'm pretty sure I just dislike, when comparing it to Mountain Meadow Ramboulet it just can't hold up. MMR is SO sturdy & easy peasy to take care of!
(Luke is tearing something up, I can hear him in the living room. I am going to let him continue, so I can finish this post!)
Anyway, I had to DRASTICALLY reduce my price (I paid $99, was asking $80, and sold them for $55) but I did eventually sell them. That's how it goes with custom wool, you NEVER recoup all of your money. (I think besides a couple special pairs, we are done with custom wool!)
(It was wrapping paper, he was trying to get out the guitar for Rock Band.)
So, I had money to spend on wool & that was exciting. I've been working with only three pairs all fall so it will be nice to finally have a decent stash of 8 pairs when all is said & done.
It was hard though, because there is so much out there, I'm picky, and I had a tight budget to work with.
In the end, I decided to splurge & get these Mosaic Moon Birthday Boy on Cestari longies from a well-known seller on Diaperswappers. It was hard to pass up the others, but I'm sure I will love this pair!
(Small crisis--I'm out of server space for uploading images to my blog. :( )
Through all of my wheelin & dealing, I managed to get quite a bit.
I am currently waiting on:
An iPad cover, bought off of Amazon w/ Swagbucks gift cards
a Puddlefoot Homegrown Tee (should match these longies) that I won on Black Friday
a Sugar Plum Fairy ornament that I won on Black Friday
a pair of Steelers black & gold longies
4 Bamboo prefolds & 2 diapers
AliOop Wool Wash Wondercubes (2 oz) and Lanolin Spray (4oz) in Monkey Farts scent
Birthday Boy longies
My Cirilo Purewool Longies (you'll remember this pair, they were shorties & I am having them turned into longies)
My Georgia Sunrise Cestari Longies (same here, shorties into longies)
A gift for someone else
