I am so excited! I did the binding on Wednesday. I ended up taking strips of the leftover fabric to make the binding, since I wasn't too excited about the idea of going back to the store and spending some money.
It's far from perfect, but I still think it's beautiful. I might have slept with it last night and it might have been really comfortable, you know, if I did things like make blankets for my daughter and then hog them to myself.
She likes it:
She's still sick and oh so cranky. Usually when she's sick, she sleeps for most of the day. Not this time. She has a version of hand, foot and mouth disease, so she has sores all in her mouth and even a few on her lips. She's miserable. We are trying to keep her hydrated, which is a chore because she won't swallow unless she has to, which means I've been drooled on all week. This is supposed to last 10 days. We are on day 4. She's also spent a significant amount of time screaming at night, resulting in David and I playing who can stay in bed the longest and pretend to sleep. Getting up doesn't help much, because she is just miserable, even with medicine and I can't bear to turn off the baby monitor and let her cry herself to sleep when she's sick.
Pray for me.
Anyway, a bunch of pictures of Aubrey in her clothes. I wish I had more.
