In the summer time...

...when the weather is hot, 
I don't just sit around and complain, promise.

I'm trying SUPER hard to be productive.

For instance, I hung the second shelf AND sewed The Cactus his changing pad cover. 
 I love the colors.

I decided to keep the mirror there AND stagger the shelves, mostly because I'm going to put the sweet window Mom had made in the place I was considering sticking the mirror.

I need to get some sort of basket for diaper needs and bolt the changing pad to the dresser and that area is done.

Hello sigh of relief.

I also made some pillow covers to match the quilt and the crib skirt.
Thank goodness Grandma gave me the leftover scraps from the quilt!

The back of each of the pillows is leftover minky from the changing pad... I love the way it feels, but minky is a pain in the butt to sew with.  I was going to use more of the scraps to make a little stuffed owl, but now that's not happening unless I get a rush of energy.

A girl can hope, right?

Also, I know that nothing goes in the crib but the baby.   But since he's still safely inside me, I'm going to store stuff in there for now :)

I'm also trying to figure out what's going above the I busted out craft paper to get a visual of where things might go without putting holes in the wall...
 So... my idea now is that it's going to be this print (Link
Wish Tree - Owls
from Stinkerpants surrounded by yellow embroidery hoops with leftover quilt fabric inside.  And an orange clock.

Hard to explain....

That, or I'm going to scrap it and make a banner with the fabric.

Or I might move everything around.  Who knows.

Like I said, only one wall is done.

I'll leave you today with a shot of my poison ivy.
 It's hard to tell, but it's getting better.

And I'm going to say that my legs are swollen from the heat.
Not just large.


  1. I love that the mirror stayed! I can only imagine how uncomfortable you must be with that leg full of poison ivy....I hope it heals soon!

  2. Oh my god your poor leg!!!!

    The room is looking great. I'm hoping to get SOMETHING done in the nursery this weekend.
