May Diaper Roundup

Here are the diapers I've made this month. All are variations on the pattern I have been slaving away at. The pieces are all drafted and scanned. I just need to digitize it. But the best thing is...This is only part one...Part two is a ruffled leg version! It will be super cute, but it is a lot more complicated. So, we will see if part two happens!

Mr.McCrazy Tongue Does Laundry

R.I.P. Scrappy

Scrappy was a good computer...for a machine that was rescued from a dumpster. So he wasn't as fast or reliable or "fully functioning" as other computers, at least he tried. I could tell he was trying because his little fan sounded like a jet engine taking off. After 3 magical years, Scrappy has left us gone back to that big dumpster in the sky (ok, more like environmentally friendly E-waste recycling facility in the sky.)

Anyways, hubby built me a sweet new rig. So, I'm happy. I can totally open more than one picture in Photoshop now. We had to drive all over heck (ok, Hell, as in Silicon Valley. San Jose, how I loathe you.) Fry's was having a super good sale on the parts we needed. We made a "quick trip" down to Fremont to pick everything up. Of course they didn't have everything we needed there. We had to go to the San Jose Fry's, then the Sunnyvale Fry's...Finally we had all the parts we needed.

By this time I was hungry and grumpy. Only Sushi O Sushi can cure such a condition. The sushi was super good. Unfortunately, Jayson was a total nighmare! He is not coming to sushi again until he is old enough to properly eat with chopsticks. I've never hired a babysitter before, but I am STRONGLY considering it!

Best Can Opener. Ever.

I just got the Oxo Good Grips Smooth Edge Can Opener...and OMG...I never thought I could be so in awe of a can opener.

Very Plate-y.

Sooooo....Hubby bought me 2 sets of Thomas Paul Dinner plates for Mothers Day. Mmmm...modern graphic art deliciousness!

I'll also say that working around those outlets was a PAIN!

Knitty Gritty.

I've been scoping 2-at-a-time Socks for a while. Two socks on one circular sounds awesome. DPN's drive me nuts! Does anyone have the book? Is it worth my $$?

In other knitting news: I just bought a bunch of bamboo circulars off of Ebay. (I can't hold on to the metal ones I bought!) And I ordered some wool yarn to make the Curly Purly soaker(a wool cover for cloth diapers). Its going to be turquoise and brown striped with brown cuffs and waistband. Super cute! I can't wait until all my stuff gets here!

Here's an example of some Curly Purlies from Bear Toes.

Welcome to the Jungle.

I painted these in Jayson's room ages ago, but I never blogged about it. So, here you go.

I Has a Stickers.

Bird is the Word.

I FINALLY finished my paintings for the living room. Hubby thinks I need to do one more, but I don't know if I am still motivated...
