Nursery Update

We at least got one item off the checklist this weekend.  Nursery moldings painted!
 Our house is still a disaster though.
But at least the whites in the room are more white than dirty.  Next up, the walls.  Piece of cake compared to all the nooks and crannies of the moldings.
I also had some energy and time last night to finally start the quilting of the quilted wall hanging for the nursery.  Progress is a great thing, and a motivator for more progress.  I'm eager to finish it off tonight, if I am not wiped out after dinner time.
Now, I didn't do anything crazy with the quilting, just some straight(ish) lines and eventually some borders around the outside.  This was really all I could handle at the moment--a wall hanging with minimal fancy stitching.
I even used painter's tape as stitching guides, so I could sneak out on having to draw chalk lines all over the quilt top.  So lazy....
While I was sewing last night, I kept thinking "I'm doing this!! I'm quilting!" It was exciting, and a little funny too, that that kept playing over and over in my head.  Such a dork.

I still have many other projects to tackle, like my felt mobile for the nursery, and making a coordinating pillow from the fabrics of the quilt.
Eventually I'd like to do a crib sized quilt, or even a twin, since I do have enough fabric left to do it.  But as usual, time, space and energy need to align to get anything done.

Hope your weekend was productive, or more importantly, relaxing.  Thanks Iz and Jeff for help in scraping and painting those stubborn moldings, and for keeping an eye on S!

  6. Love how the quilt hanging turned out! It's so cute! Progress of any sort when pregnant is something to be excited about. I chuckled a bit, getting geeked out about quilting and actually the fact that it was getting done is something I would do. :D

  9. It's looking great.

    You are a quilter!! I would chant to myself, too, over such a success.

    I love the pretty felt and fabric you have for your mobile and extras. I've seen some darling felt mobiles, and I'd like to make one, too.
