Antsy and a couple Diapers for Beeba 2

What a title, huh? ok, first things first. Why am I antsy.

Well, I ordered a drop spindle from a seller on Esty, HausMaus. I'd like to say I am thrilled, it is great, spins like a dream, whatever. But I can't. I can't even say it is horrible. It has been a week since I ordered, and I not only don't have it yet (something that can happen, and I am not upset so much about) but I have also received no communication from the seller, and am seeing no indication that it was shipped or even that the order was looked at.

I ordered some roving to practice on the day after, and it is not here yet either. It at least shows as shipped in my Purchases. But, the seller chose not to use a trackable shipping method... or at least did not give me a way to track it. Again, that in itself is not so bad... maybe foolish, but not terrible.

So, I am antsy. I get very into what I am doing. When I decide to try something, I do it full on, head on... and I like to get started right away. I taped a CD to a pencil and have been twirling that around, and if my wool gets here before the spindle, I may try it that way.... but I'd rather have a real spindle, cause the pencil and CD keeps falling apart, even though it spins really well when it is together.

I just wish the stuff would get here, you know? I know it will (it better) but I am antsy.

But, on the other hand, I have been getting some diapers for Beeba 2 done... she needs some Mediums, she is growing so fast, lol. I made one that is Velour inner and outer, with pastel variagated Wooly Nylon, and a snap-in soaker... it is to die for! MMMM... so squishy and soft... I was gonna put it on my cart, but decided Beeba 2 MUST have it... I can make another for the cart.

I also made her an embroidered Denim fitted.... I do not usually do fitted diapers with embroidery, but I was testing my machine after it came back from the shop... Again, it would have gone to my cart, but... I didn't realize that the shop people must have set the machine for regular sewing (which I never use on that machine) and had set the presser foot pressure far far too high. The embroidery did not come out perfect, not even good enough for me to want to stock it as a second... but it is still very pretty and cute. So, it became a diaper for my Beeba 2.

Isn't she cute?
