Ways to waste time on a Thursday

The Wordle. Not that I have many words on my blog yet, but these are the most prominent:

I tried making my own version of Lotta Jansdotter's apron recently. It worked out alright I think. I'm saving it incase the one I'm trying to make for my sister for her birthday doesn't work out - it's incredibly complicated, and I've threatened to throw it in the bin several times now! I also tried a material shopping bag, based on the plastic bag shape (I got the idea from It's cute, but whether it's worth the hassle of making it, when you can pick up a 'green' bag from the supermarket for $1 is another question. I made 3, of course, because I couldn't help myself! They do look cute, are very sturdy and easy to fold up. You could keep one in your handbag if you had a large handbag.

And some other aprons I've made recently (Happy Birthday, Jane Ann!!). Sorry one of them is sideways - the blog editor keeps turning it around and there's nothing I can do about it.

And finally, an excerpt from a funny email titled "the truth about motherhood..." about the difference in attitude you have with each subsequent child. (I'm happy to forward to email to anyone who wants it). I thought of this the other morning when I had locked myself in the bathroom so I could eat my breakfast in peace!

At Home: 1st baby: You spend a good bit of every day just gazing at the baby.
2nd baby: You spend a bit of everyday watching to be sure your older child isn't squeezing, poking, or hitting the baby.
3rd baby: You spend a little bit of every day hiding from the children
