It seems a little long huh? I am thinking I am going to take my sewing machine with me when I go in August to help Mel put the room together, in case any adjustments have to be made...I am really hoping this won't happen, haha.
A little closer view...I love these colors. This fabric was selected by Noreen from Life's Blessings as she is making the matching quilt for me. This is the fabric for the back of the quilt. Mel just told us the colors she wanted to use in the nursery, and she found this. It is PERFECT! And I am soo grateful she is doing this for me! Can't wait to see it.
Next week I will hopefully make the bumper pads, and the valance for the window. I don't have the fabric for the window yet, so while I am waiting for it to come I think I will make the burp cloths I want to do. My sister Diane found a wonderful blog online that had a tutorial for these, and they were not only just darling, but also quick and easy. (right up my alley, haha) I am kind of scared to do the bumper pads. I am not sure why as they really shouldn't be that big of a deal. I think it is because I do tend to be somewhat of a perfectionist and I want them to be perfect. I have never made these before so I don't know how it will go. I have researched a countless amount of information on doing this, and have probably got it way out of proportion (imagine that?) but guess we will see. I have done soooo much sewing over the years you would think there is nothing that would really stress me, but they have all been clothing items. I have not made home deco items (except for window valances) or what I would consider to be crafty type things. I want to make a pillow for the rocker, and 4 stuffed animals out of the left over fabric....I like patterns and directions, I don't wing it well either, haha. I still have a couple of more nighties I am going to try and squeeze in, but I will NOT buy the fabric until I have the rest of this done I have promised myself.
I am soo looking forward to this week-end. It is my son's first time behind the pulpit in his own church on Sunday, and tomorrow we are hoping to go to my nephews baseball game. They are in the finals and in first place. He has gotten the game ball the last TWO games which is soo exciting. How I love a baseball game on a lazy, sunny afternoon. Tonight should find us playing cards as always, depending on if my hubby makes it home in time. Hope you all have a good week-end.
