I know, I know, it's Tuesday already, but yesterday I was suffering from low blood pressure, so all I did was minimal housework and tv watching! Sue me - I'm 7 months pregnant!
So this weekend I finished my kitchen curtains and we hung them up. What do you think?
I used Alexander Henry's Heath on the top half and then various prints from his Rivoli for the bottom. I LOVE Alexander Henry!
I know they look like a lot of curtain for just the kitchen, but the window faces west so for a good part of the afternoon we have blinding sun rays and I wanted something I can close.
This is the view of our little front yard. Hubs put in the begonias along the front walk just before I came home from Canada as a little surprise for me! Awww...
I have also finished cutting up and resewing the bento box blocks. I have a nice piece of grey minky I'm going to use on the back. The quilt is a bit bigger than your standard baby quilt, but with this type of block I didn't want to make them any smaller. The middle square is 4", the whole block is 14".
I really wish I'd been able to do the whole nursery in grey and yellow - it's a colour combination I adore! But the hubs didn't want grey in his baby girl's room. Gotta let him win a few battles. (emphasis on "few"!)
We also went crib shopping this weekend, but ended up only buying the mattress and the change table pad. I remembered I'd seen the crib I wanted online, for almost 100 euros cheaper than in the stores!
But at least now I can start planning the fitted sheets and the pad covers.
I still shake my head in disbelief as I walk past the mattress and think "There's a CRIB MATTRESS in my house!" I don't think it will really be REAL until she's born.
