Oh man oh man!
Thanks to everyone so so much for all the awesome support, advice, and suggestions from my most recent woes. I have tried a few of the ideas. I got two great messages from Kieren and my sister's sister-in-law Lindsey about the Montessori idea of the floor bed. I liked it but I need a mattress bigger than her crib mattress so I dont have to nurse her to sleep while I'm on the hardwood floor. We both don't exactly fit, my baby is a bed hog. I am going to keep trying that idea though.
Truly, thank you for all your lovely words.
p.s. I felt lame for charging for those awesome vintage patterns. So now they are all posted and free here. Have fun and make tiny animals.
