i am now fighting the urge to go home and just start sewing… no, must put in one productive work day first! 😉 … but, i think a lunchtime trip to Hobby Lobby is probably in the offing!

my spatial relation skills aren’t always top notch, but this really doesn’t appear to be six yards of fabric, does it? maybe it is… it had better be!

and i do hope my calculations are on point… eek!

i am definitely impressed with the hand-written note:
Dear KT~
Thank you for shopping
Quilt Home! I hope that you
enjoy your darling fabrics! Have
a wonderful time sewing! 😉
~Mary

if you have some sewing or fabric needs- i highly recommend QuiltHome.com!!!

more pictures to come after the weekend with the progress!!!

easing the panic — March 23, 2010

easing the panic

you may recall my panic from awhile back… and all days since…

that darn, sweet, tiny nursery. how was i to outfit it?

i really love this bedding set:

but just couldn’t resign myself to make the mega down payment for the 4-piece set and all it’s coordinating cuteness… especially if i planned to ditch the bumper once The Bumpit starts to roll about…

so i searched, and i searched, and i searched… and then i searched some more… but still loved that Delilah from Cocalo Couture.

but alas… two friends sent me on search through this wonderful blog (thanks Nia & Andrea!) and then i found this post and my DIM (Do It My-own-self) instincts kicked in… and i was off….

i have always loved the Lotus collection from Amy Butler… (and in fact, have purchased a purse from etsy with some of the beautiful fabrics!) and my brain started turning and i realized, “I can do that!”

though, i will say- finding these fabrics in Lincoln was not meant to be.

but i finally found them online, and rush shipped them to myself right here in NE…. they should be here in time for a weekend of sewing fun!

all the more fun to find this post over at Young House Love…. so fun that they are expecting a babers too… 😉

yes, i can do this. and i will post pictures upon the completion… as long as it’s presentable.

or, i’ll just run out and buy that Delilah set and post pics of that! 🙂

mama panic — March 2, 2010

mama panic

i am just going to let you know that i am turning into a Crazy Lady trying to figure out crib bedding.

i found one set i like – but am not 100% sold on it, so i continue to look.

then, reading further in my Baby Bargains book, they strongly suggest you NOT even invest in the bumper pads. then it’s down to just piecing together sheets and accessories– should be easy, right? right.

not turning out to be true.
