It's been a while since I've been here...a long two weeks full of illnesses for the whole family. Everything is still in disarray, but it's getting better. Elliot missed the first week of pre-school co-op, but I was pleased that today when I picked him up he actually cried because he didn't want to leave. I've never really left him except with my husband and a few times with his little friend's Mommy, so this is big for us. I felt like I was getting away with something terrible today when I drove away and went to Starbucks, then back to the school to peek in the window. No worries, he was putting on a fireman costume.
I drove home and finished up the shoes for the little kitty above, a simplified version of Hillary's Kitty. She's made of flannel and a vintage curtain. I fell in love with this one when I saw it on flickr, and decided to make one inspired by it when we needed a gift for the little girl next door. I would have loved to make her a little wool coat, but I've been getting crippling migraines lately, and my only available time was taken by one on Monday. Pain and vomiting so bad you can't go to the hospital because the thought of having the lights on is too much to bear. Any tips on handling migraines during pregnancy, when Tylenol really doesn't do the job?
And finally, my husband has been complaining lately that our mattress is too firm, enough so that he slept in the guest room for a few nights. I asked him to solve the problem so that he could come back to our room, and this arrived, a wool snuggle mate from Shepherd's Dream. Heaven. Just had a lovely nap there. (Sorry for the terrible nighttime photo)
