I bought a silly Danish cradle. It was kind of expensive, and will only last max six months - but it's hell cute, so I don't really care. I's all set up now and I'm making fitted sheets from thrifted fabric and also some new duck cotton I scored quite cheap. Yesterday Spotlight opened in Armidale (where I'm living at the moment) and every ovulating/pregnant woman within a 100km radius was there. It was like we could smell it - the sweet scent of discount fabrics. I got about 10 meters of really nice linen, cotton and muslin for about $50. Now I just need to wait for the sun to get a little lower on the horizon so it's not so bloody hot and I can get sewing.

The lambskin was only $20 on eBay, gave it a wash and it's as good as new.

I crocheted the little raindrops with some cotton yarn.
