I've been having a bit of trouble sleeping lately, so I've been trying to use my nightowl hours more effectively. Last night, I was up from 1 until about 4ish. I ate a slice of pizza and researched quilt patterns.
It was productive...especially since Grandma Stainbrook is going to make us a baby quilt. She didn't volunteer, exactly, but said she would be happy to make it for Baby Brady :)
Grandma making a quilt is great on multiple levels--I get an heirloom AND I get to pick out the pattern and colors I love.
Here's the pattern I've decided to go with.
How cute is that?? Colors will be decided after we know the gender, but I'm pretty sure the nursery will have an owl theme.
I think the lack of sleep inspired me, but owls are still cute.
In other owl/mooching news, I've convinced my friend Erin to make us some artwork.
Here's my favorite inspiration piece...
Awwwww. Erin's going to do it (or some other Owl work) in the colors I want and make it fit on a canvas. Woo!
I also think I'm going to make my own crib bedding and changing pad covers. I'm not seeing pre-made, reasonably priced ones I like. It's a bad combo. I'm both cheap and picky :)
Anyway, here's a fabric I really like. Does the little bit of pink make it too girly if we have a boy? Is it too busy for sheets and changing pads? I think I'll make the crib skirt in a plain fabric.
