I’m not a very good housekeeper. M is awesome. He’s always making sure the vacuuming is done, that I’m on track with laundry and the dogs are clean/fed. It doesn’t come naturally to me – but my brother is the same so I don’t feel so badly. And apparently M finds it all very relaxing. Go figure.
He’s been after me to make some decisions about the nursery … Mom had me choose some fabric for a baby quilt she wants to make for us (which I am super excited about as it has zoo animals on it). I bought some discount fabric at a local quilting shop for some pillows to make the glider more comfortable on my back. I finally got around to actually buying the pillow forms … and making the pillows themselves.
Super simple but effective.
The backs are 5” overlapping pieces with folded, finished 1/4” seams for easy peasy removal and washing if they get dirty from baby … or the dogs mouthing them (apparently they are very interesting – it must be the smell of the pillow forms themselves).
The next project is the diaper bag, actually acquiring the crib (we’ve ordered it, just waiting for it to arrive) and other miscellaneous things I would rather not think about … I’m not very good at this whole ‘nesting’ thing. Oh well! M will keep me on track :)
ps. Sorry for the cr*ppy iPhone photos – M is in a meeting so I can’t get the camera from his office!
