Totally fab as usual! LOVE the kitty with the fishbowl ones. Does Sophia ever try to turn and look at her booty to see what pics are on it. LOL. I have this image of the whole "cat chasing it's tail" thing.

Honestly, you make THE very cutest dipes out there.

Okay, when exactly is construction beginning on your museum? I need to see these babies in person... under glass of course.

Okay, just a thought here, but actual construction of your museum is a little much. I mean, it just isn't fair to make all of us travel all over the world to see your creations. So, how about you get one of those converted school buses and make a Travelling Road Show of Gorgeousness? We could sign up and you could just travel around with your kids, visiting your fellow MDC moms all over North America. Thoughts?

ps> I would totally cook you supper when you come!

Earthenware... we need to get her to do a whole Canadian tour! I'll organize Ontario and East, you organize Manitoba and west! (I totally want to go to Newfoundland this summer anyway!)

Strawhatbrat, I am TOTALLY envious of your gorgeous diapers. Your embroidery is amazing. So nice. You have lucky children to get outfitted so nicely!

Alex will be back soon. He's never gone long. I do miss him like nothing else.

And I *was* a honeyboy girl but got so sick of making the tabs! I love how they look they're just SO time consuming! These are from the VB fitted pattern.

I was wondering about how many times he has had to go. I peeked at your blog once and it seemed it was more than a couple of times. Does he stay here in the states?

Got word today!!! He is ON HIS WAY HOME NOW!!! So he sent out one last e-mail and said he can't check any more emails 'til he gets back in 7-10 days! My dear SIL is just so excited! They were newlyweds when he left and their first child was born while he was gone. He did come home for leave and bonded with their ds when he was 2 months old. Fast bond, too. SIL had tapes of him from the answering machine she kept and played over and over.

Soooo, back to the topic at hand - what do you think about differences in fit between the patterns? Especially since now you are making side snappers.

That's so great about your brother! Isn't it such a weight off?! This is our 7th deployment.

They both fit my girls wonderfully. I like the side snap because I Sofia can't take it off and I can embroider on the fronts now. I think the crotch is a little more trim on the VB. But mine are pockets so they're very trim regardless. And I like not doing casings, although if I use anything but microfleece as an inner it could easily wick so if I use velour or sherpa I still need to do a casing.
