it's going to be a busy two weeks...

...because that's when we're hosting Kelly's baby shower! So much to do in so little time. I can't share here (Kelly reads this blog, so the secret planning would be out), but I would like to share what we have in store for the nursery bedding. We're using four fabrics and a jumbo ric rac as trim. Here they are:

The blue fabric is the exact color of the wall paint, a soft sea-foam blue. We've paired it with an ivory Minky dot, a brown and cream Toile, and a stripe incorporating all the colors.

I've got to get to work sewing! And... finish planning the details for the shower! If you have any awesome baby shower game ideas, please let me know.

Yikes, sooooo much to do. At least with our cold weather, there's nothing to do outdoors!


  1. That is going to be one beautiful nursery. This must be such an exciting time for you:-) Hope you enjoy every moment of it.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog during the Holidays. I am sorry I didn't have my act together to do the same. I'm sure I missed some amazing posts so I need to go catch up on your blog.

  2. Oh my goodness!!!! I saw those pictures and couldn't stop smiling. I cannot wait to see how it turns out! You are so creative!!

  3. It looks beautiful!!! You'll have to let me know if you have any sure-fire tips for sewing with minky dot, it always gives me fits. :)

  4. I absolutely LOVE all of it together. You are so amazing with all of your skills, not to mention your excellent taste!

    Can't wait to see the finished product...

  5. Is it okay if I RSVP here? I cannot wait!!!

  6. BEE-U-TI-FUL! I have some sewing projects of my own that I've been waiting to start on a snowy day. Well, the time is here.
