Minky Covers

Before Rowan was born, I thought it might be nice to have an extra changing pad cover. The kind I wanted wasn’t available anymore so I decided to make one. I ordered some miky fabric and made up a pattern. I was pretty happy with how it turned out, but I ended up with some extra fabric. Not knowing what to do with it, I shoved it in my fabric box and forgot about it.

Fast forward a few months. We noticed that Rowan was slightly more likely to fall asleep on minky than any other type of fabric so I pulled out my leftover fabric and got to work.

The Pack n Play cover. I really should make a second one.

But Rowan has a second crib for naps and hanging out while the rest of us eat. So more fabric was ordered and a second cover was made. I’m very happy with this one and think I’m getting the hang of it.

This one was fun to make! There are straps that go through the cover to hold it in place so I got to add button holes.

Next minky project: Holly has requested a quilt. It may take me a while…

Thomas Cove Coastal Reserve

Our most recent hike was a last minute find on the way to a rock shop. The weather was dicey so we decided to go for a hike at the next place that was off of the water. Thomas Cove Coastal Reserve did not disappoint!

We timed the hike beautifully with the weather and managed to luck into a easy, pretty trail. We spent most of the hike in a tidal area that would have been under water at high tide. It definitely made for a more interesting walk since we were able to see a lot more of the coastline than is possible at high tide. That being said, I think it would be interesting to see the contrast. Since we want to go back to the rock shop, we may try to time our return to Thomas Cove with high tide.

The tides here are crazy! This is all under water at high tide.
