The Nursery is Near Completion

I have really tried to use my homemaking time this week before I change jobs from "Homemaker to "Stay-at-Home-Mom". Obviously I have a lot more time on my hands now than I will in 5 weeks (4 weeks if I follow my cousin Macey's lead, 3 weeks if I follow Jake's friend's wife Shar, and 2 weeks if I follow Stephanie's sister Leslie). I'm still thinking it'll be 5 weeks away though.

The nursery is what has occupied most of my time since I moved back here. Here are the things I have completed so far:
I reupholstered my glider & ottoman.

I made an interior bag and border for the laundry basket.

I made a crib skirt & bumper for the crib, using 2 of the same fabrics from the quilt that I made. I also finished the quilt border.

I have a couple more sewing projects in my head, but nothing as time consuming as these were. As for the nursery, it is just missing its changing table, a few things for the walls, and a window valance. We're almost ready for our baby!

Wow, you have been busy. I would suggest to pad your glader armrests. It sucks to bonk your babies head on hard wood. I mean, that's what I've heard.
