I hope you aren’t tired of all things baby yet. These complete the set of burp cloths I made–a total of 6. The lions and tigers fabric came in the mail, so I set off to the local fabric store to get the rest of the materials for a baby quilt. I’m thinking I’ll size it for the toddler bed and then it can stick around for a while, and be sized for when he can actually use it as opposed to adorning the side of the crib.
We have plans to spend the weekend in Vancouver, B.C. I used Priceline and got a room at the Hyatt for $70 a night. We’re going to head out early on Friday and stay through Sunday. Does anyone have any good restaurant or fabric store recommendations? I really like Vancouver, but we rarely make it up there because of the hassle at the border. I found a few travel deals, for anyone interested. We had originally planned to go to Portland and stay at The Nines, a new hotel that looks beautiful. They’re offering a special for $99 a night if you book by tomorrow. We were also thinking about going to Victoria, as the big, gorgeous Fairmont Empress Hotel that looks like a castle is super on sale. I’ve always wanted to stay there. They’re having a special for $79 a night, versus the usual $300. But, alas, I can’t force myself to be reliant upon the ferry system, especially not for a short and quick getaway.
