This was a super busy weekend. I got a lot accomplished and feel great about it!
Mostly, it was cleaning, though. I cleaned out the clutter from my laundry room and washed it from top to bottom. It's actually not that bad to be in there now. I also did the same for the two bathrooms.
I also finished the laundry (however, that was Saturday, and I have probably about 2-3 loads to do now. The never ending story.....lalalalalala)
BUT - I did make a few things.
A cute little halloween inspired rosette pin. It's for sale in my etsy shop.
And a fall wreath. This was inspired by something somewhere on the internet. I feel badly that I do not have the link for it. It was so pretty and stuck in my head. While I was shopping I picked up the wreath on a whim and just had to make it. So, sorry if it was your idea first. But thank you!
This will be going to my friend, Bec. She's been my friend since kindergarten!
I think I'm going to have to make one for me, though, because every time I pass it in my house I just love it.
And last but not least, I made a little wall hanging to put up in my laundry room.
Originally, I was going to make something colorful and quirky with something like "Wash, Wear, Repeat."
As I was going through my stash, though, I found these fabrics.
These are the fabrics that I chose for a little girl quilt when I was pregnant with my first child.
He was a boy.
Second baby was a boy.
Then I had two miscarriages. One of them, I'm convinced is a little girl. She was a fighter. She held on through a lot. My second son was in the NICU when he was born, and I commented that there were mostly little boys in there. The nurses said, "That's because little girls are fighters. They hang on and get out of here quickly." So, I think she's a little girl waiting for me in heaven.
So I made this little wall hanging that says, "Thank You, Lord, for those I wash for and for those I do not." It is a little dress and quilt hanging on the line.
It will be nice to see this in the laundry room, when I'm doing the never ending job. It will remind me to be thankful for those I have to hold.
Including boy number 3.
