stuck indoors because of flooding September 15, 2008

Here’s a couple things I did in the evening while we were stuck indoors because of all the flooding in our area.  We got the most rainfall in 24 hours EVER this Saturday and then Ike came through on Sunday so we were pretty much stuck indoors all weekend.

Quilted changing pad and converted diapers into burp clothes

finished up a quilt I had started a long time ago

I made the cushion seat, although I’m thinking of adding some batting to it, the pillow is not made by me.

We are in the process of switching to cloth diapers and I bought a dozen microfiber towels from the auto department at Target and turned them into diaper inserts.  Working on these made me realize that someday I’d like to have a better machine.  Guess, I should start saving my pennies.

I finally made the cushions that I’ve been wanting to make for probably 10 years.  I bought a table and bamboo chair set at a garage sale several years ago and the cushions needed to be re-done on the chairs.   When I moved out of the parent’s house I ended up only keeping two of the chairs.  On the chairs I had the cushions started but hadn’t finished them.  I used pillowcases to cover them so finally today I decided that since I couldn’t find my tapestry needle to finish my diaper covers, I would work on these cushions that I’ve been wanting to do for so long.  They are just a simple espresso brown heavyweight twill, and I really really like them now.  It’s dark and rainy here, so I’ll take pictures once the sun comes out again, hopefully tomorrow.
