So last night, I was supposed to quilt a bit more on that doll quilt...
Instead I met my husband at the baby furniture store. We looked around & found the most wonderful sales associate! (& The best reason for not hiring people on a comission basis) who told us all about car seats - I guess this really is real if you are looking at car seats, huh? The best news, since our due date is late in the year, we may get to benefit from end of year sales! We also found out that we shoudl probably order our crib sooner rather than later as they can take 12 to 16 weeks to deliver. (Yes, you read that right.)
But that reminds me of another funny MIL story.
My MIL for all our differences, has stated that she would buy the crib, car seat, stroller, changing table... WHEW!
But she told her friends daughter that she would buy her crib & was shocked at the $___ price tag (Not her grandchild...) So my husband & I while we were not looking for the cheapest thing in the store, we were price comparing.
So we called her with our preliminary total (to judge the reaction) & she said "Don't buy cr@p."
(So she was shocked at a rather average price for a crib - we have seen higher - but also says don't buy cr@p. Would sending a check & letting us use it as we see fit work so much better?)
Oh I got sick in the bathroom at the baby furniture store - they have a nice ladies room complete with a "mothers room."
Back to the quilty stuff... at this same store they have "soft" supplies. (quilts, etc.)
I think that my husband may have a new appreciation for my craft... (They were pricey & not much more that a bunch of squares sewn together - some of the squares are minky.) & He admitted that the stuff that I got at the LQS to back my babies quilt feels the same. SCORE!
After the sickies & the baby store - we went out for pizza. (Am I the only one who feels better after being sick?) Not the best idea - it sat hard on me & All I was able to do was to crawl into bed for the rest of the evening. Hence, so more quilting on that doll quilt.
