the nursery

The nursery is as done as it's going to get before the baby arrives. I was hoping to sew the crib skirt and bumper in these weeks, but it will have to wait. I'm not a very experienced seamstress, so taking on such projects is not conducive to keeping my blood pressure down.

I am so thankful for the hours of work that hubs put in to painting the furniture, for my mom spending her entire Saturday afternoon yesterday sewing the curtain for me, and for my Grandma who made the beautiful Beatrix Potter quilted wall hanging. I know baby girl will love all these gifts!

This bassinet will be baby's first bed, in our room. It was a gift from a couple at our church. I think it is so adorable! What a gift!

Everything is washed, folded and waiting. all we need now is a baby!

The nursery is very cute. :) And manages to avoid the whole pink or blue color schemes. I mean, I like pink and blue, but when that seems to be the entire contents of baby departments, it is nice to see a change! ;)

Hopefully she comes soon! Bedrest is no fun, I know. I'm glad you didn't get put on bedrest til the end of the pregnancy.
