The nest is getting there

 Here's a pic of the nursery. Note to self:  Don't wait until 10 pm to take photos...



See the crib sheet and quilt I made from the nifty flannel I ordered online?  The quilt is going to be a rag quilt, but I haven' had a chance to wash and dry it yet, so the seams aren't frayed as they should be.  Since Julien is big into the sea, I decided to do a mobile of sea critters to habituate Little Bean to future surroundings.

Didn't Julien do a fabulous job with the dresser?

Here are a couple of before photos. From plain ol' pine to colorful goodness. :D

Thank you. It still needs a few finishing touches, like some art on the walls and a rug, but I'll get to those later. :P

Funny,that - I was just wondering whether you'd popped yet, or whether you were on the pre-baby energy surge and nesting like mad!

You're making a beautiful job of it, too - and Julien's work on the dresser is stunning!

*hugs* loads of 'em :D

Hehe. I wouldn't say I've felt an energy surge, per se, but definitely a desire to nest. :D

Hugs back at ya. :)

Thanks. :) I still need to make some wall art, and I have an idea for a rug, but I'm not sure that will be done before D-day.

Oh it's just lovely. Lucky little bean to have a family like you guys :)

Beautiful work on the dresser, but I like the mobile the best.

I need to take a couple of close-ups of those cute little felt critters. They were fun to make.

Yeah, we thought those were fun colors that could work for girl or boy. Soon we'll know which it is to be!

*lol* He or she will be too young to recognize it, but all the crafting has made me happy and insured that I felt good, so well worth it. :D

Exactly. All the stuff we have for babies during the first few years of life is really for us. But LB will appreciate your craftiness when s/he is older and can boast about how his/her parents make his/her own clothes, toys, bedding and furniture. :)

And hopefully he or she will grow up liking to make things, too. :D

The room is SO adorable
and *so* you. I love the modern vibe, and the mobile is adorable. He did do a fantastic job painting the dresser, it looks professionally done.

I hope all goes well up to the birth :)

Woohoo, looks nice! I'd totally want to be a baby living there. ;)

hehe. For the moment, Baby seems too happy to stay inside!

That looks great! I'm glad you memorialized it in its current, simplistic beauty before it's completely overrun by the eventual, inevitable madness to come. :-)
