Nursery

Here are so better pictures of the nursery, 
First off the cute rocker, from Target, pillow by me from Baby Times 24 Handmade Treasures for Baby & Mom.  The pillow is on the front cover.  The table was painted by the daddy-to-be, carrying out the cute green, yellow and brown theme
chair
Next the crib with the shortened crib skirt, the crib is also from TArget

Here is the book slings and a bit of the artwork above the crib.  We saw this idea in a book and decided to do our version.  Erin purchased art canvases, we covered them in extra fabric.  Next I painted the letters in alternating yellows and greens.  After the paint was dry Erin used Gorilla Glue to attach to canvas.  I don’t feel right showing you the entire name, keeping that a bit private

Finally, the baby quilt made by soon-to-be Aunt Meredith and it went to the longarm quilter today.  That gives you a good idea of all the fabrics we used and the small bit of John Deere fabric that was included.
