Well, quarantine has been good to get a few projects done.  While Charissa sleeps, Verity and I work ... until she falls asleep and then it's just me again.  Here's what we've been up to this week. 

Verity having some tummy time while she watches me work.
And yes - her eyes are blue.  We're all a bit surprised, but who knows what will happen in the next few months. 
I wasn't quite fast enough to catch her full smile, but V was happily smiling at me while I was sewing.  Her and the pink elephant were just hanging out.  
I was holding Verity in my lap while I was reading something, and I thought she was just being still, and then I realized that she'd fallen asleep.  It's so hard to find good help. :)

So here are the projects we did this week.  
I finally hung my curtain for the guest room.  It only took me two months to do it, but I am pleased with the results.
A few months ago I tried to solve the squeaky doors by using some WD-40 on them.  Well, they don't squeak, but now they so easily swing that they never stay open.  So I made this little door stopper that I found here.  They didn't have a tutorial for it, but it was pretty easy to copy without one.  
I got tired of CJ's pens, pencils and markers being in an old yogurt container (Britt's solution), so I made Charissa a pretty pencil cup.  

This used to hold coffee from a cafe, but I repurposed it using some directions from Little Birdie Secrets. 

My last project (so far) is this little hair bow. I found this "ribbon" at the Scrap Exchange and I knew I had to get it because Charissa has a sweater that perfectly matches it. 

So that's what we've been up to between loads of laundry and cleaning the carpets and trips to the doctor.  It has turned out to be quite a productive week.

This baby is so sweet and so calm too! I can't believe how talented you are with all your projects! I wrote that you might want to write a book on how to's of homemaking, and crafts etc for the year 2009. Now I am thinking maybe you might want to make a "How to" video as well! You also should include how you manage to do all this in between taking care of a toddler and an infant I might add!! My goodness!!
