Well, we finished the nursery just in time, the weekend before Cora's week-early arrival. It was such a relief to know I could just enjoy her once we got home. And now I know there is absolutely no time for art/craft projects in the first weeks with a baby!
I'll share as much as I can today before she wakes up from her snooze.
The old tree got a facelift when we found out we were having a girl.
The Joel Dewberry and Amy Butler fabrics became a crib skirt (from Little Stitches for Little Ones), rocking chair cushion, changing table skirt, and wall art. (The quilt is the one work-in-progress that didn't get finished in time.)
We tried several ways of hanging the birds before deciding on this method--fishing line strung through painted embroidery hoops. I wanted something stable enough to hang over the crib, and this seems to do the trick.
Oh, I hear some tiny grunts. There are lots more details in previous posts, if you want to wander back.
Thank you to Jackie, for featuring the room on the tiny decor blog.
