Let's help each other out, mummas!


My ISO (subject to constant updating - things I would really love in pink)
Please no commercial characters.

(Not to be snarky, but please stick to the list, as we are in the midst of a major downsizing/decluttering, and I'm trying to only have things that I will actually use. If in doubt, please p.m. me. )

DS3 (10)
oragami paper He has several instruction books, so we don't need any more of those. But he goes through a package of paper in a week. (Any pattern, size or colour would be great.)
strings of small white Christmas tree lights (Working ones only, please) NOT the "constant twinkle" kind, please. These are for a "nightlight" project for his room.

glass citrus juicer (used is fine, but no chips, please)
down/feather blend pillows (These don't have to be new, they are for an ongoing project with my daughter. Polyfill ones won't work, however.)
glass Pyrex loaf pans For my weekly bread making. (I only have 2 now; 2-4 more would make my life much easier!) Used is just fine!

*Full size sheets - white, creme, or neutral prefered
*Twin size sheets - solid primary color (red, blue, navy, etc.)
*curtains, valances, drapes (any style) in primary color for the boys' room, creme or other neutral for other rooms - used or mama made welcome
*front door rug or kitchen rugs
*GC to Wal-Mart or Lowes

Other:
*onesies in size 0-3mo. and up
*4T boys summer tops, 3T bottoms
*an outfit for the boys for Easter church service - 3T/4T & size 3-6 mo.
*corduroy fabric for making pants for DS (need at least 3/4 yd.)
*playmat for "tummy time" for baby
*preschool/Pre-K homeschooling materials

I am coming in a bit late, but hopefully not too late.
We really prefer natural fibers if at all possible but we do have some that are not.

Right now we could really use:

Me:
Size Large yoga style pants, any color would love them for after the babe is born and the end of pregnancy which I am due the end of March
Wool socks
Nursing bra size 40DD

DD age 2
Size 2t shorts
size 3t pants
size 3t t-shirts
anything thomas the train related, has a wooden track and a couple of pieces of train
Books (non religious)
doll diapers and clothes to fit 14in doll or preemie size clothes for the bigger doll

New babe: GIRL
newborn and small diapers
wool longies size newborn
size small shorties or soakers
none onsie type tshirts and long sleeve shirts
soft shoes to keep her feet warm, girly or gn
100% cotton recieving blankets

We could also use knit fabrics taht I could sew up into pants and wipes for the kiddos, I really need to get us back to family wipes but we lost a bunch when I first got pregnant and I need to make more.
