The house, neighborhood, and city are a flurry of commotion in preparation for this weekend's storm. I haven't braved the supermarket yet (plenty of milk and toilet paper in our bunker) but am enjoying a little shopping trip of my own.
Last spring, when I had several friends who were expecting, I purchased materials and patterns for these sweet felt baby toys. They took a lot longer than expected and weren't finished in time for any of the showers (including the one I hosted myself!) But I think it will be more fun to introduce them to real, live babies anyway -- and luckily I made a few extras for the next round, due this fall & winter. Before I start giving them out, I thought I'd get everybody together for a photo.
