Baptism Gown

Guess what? I've been knitting. This little dress is for a friend's baby. The matching bonnet is almost done as well. Isn't it darling?

Other than that, though, I am afraid I have been in a crafty funk. Phooey. I need to snap out of it.

Today is Earth Day and I was thinking last night about my small green contributions to the earth. I have been cloth diapering for five and a half years, straight through three children. Let's think on that for a minute, because it is impressive and exhausting to think of. Yes, cloth is more work, but I feel it has been totally worth it. I do use disposables sometimes - when we are out for a long period of time and I can't change the baby, or when there is a babysitter, and sometimes when I am not caught up with the diaper laundry and run out of clean ones. (Ha!) But still, I am happy to know that I have contributed a little less to the landfills than perhaps the average mother of three. 

There are other things I do as well, little things that I hope add up, but the diapers are probably my biggest impact. 

All that to say, Happy Earth Day! I hope you try to make it greener as well.


  1. Someday you will miss washing all those dirty diapers. . .

  2. I am so excited to see this in person!! I love the way it looks!
