The doll sling is complete. It took two tries to get the size right. I've used this material for so many things. I bought about 12? yards of it at a thrift store for $4. I probably have 5 yards left. I always use it for things I'm not sure how to make so I don't waste any of my "good" stash. What's my point here? Dunno. Just rambling on. Here's her little sling.
Awhile back Joanna made a beautiful sling for me. Last week I was trying it on and then I was carrying our dog around in it and he loved it. He fell asleep and never wanted to get out of it. He's a weird pooch… or am I the weird one for putting him in it in the first place? Anyway, then Keely wanted to get in it too. I put her in and she barely fit- her long legs all hanging out the end, but she was amused with it. Man, is she heavy. I decided I'm going to attempt to make myself a newborn sling one of these days. It'll be shorter and sit a little higher on my chest to keep a bitty babe snuggled without feeling lost in the bottom. I never carried Keely in a sling because I just sat in one spot for most of every day and night holding her upright because she spewed milk constantly. That'd made for a wet, nasty sling. Hopefully, that won't be the situation this time around. It'd be handy (ha ha ha) to have some hands free time to be with Keely when 2 arrives. It's quite tricky to get the measurements rights on the sling though, so we'll see how that goes.
There's this song that I keep hearing, "Young Folks". I first saw/heard it on a few blogs. Which made me whistle/hum the beginning of it for several days. Finally I forgot about it and, lo and behold, I hear it on a commercial. Now it's stuck in my head again. I don't even know if I really like it. Just that beginning is catchy to me. Watch it here. Now you'll all be infected…mwah ha ha ha.
Lastly, a family friend who recently had some big computer troubles sent us this link to a little movie that is pretty amusing. It was to us anyway.
