I realized Mon evening ( after working a 12 hr shift in the unit that day) that we have less than 80 days until Tess ( note: we are calling her Tess and are pretty sure that is her name but there is still some debate) arrives. YIKES!! and currently, the nursery is completely white ( thanks to Reeves and my parents for kilsing those dark wood paneled walls!!! ) . I have been known to be a little indecisive and like to take my time picking out fabric, colors and paint. I just want things to look perfect! I had been to several fabric stores in Florence and found one very pretty paisley pink and green fabric but nothing that I just LOVED to coordinate with it. So, I started with my internet search, not only did I find 1 room decorated in the paisley, I found 2!! so I was able to see what fabrics they put together and I sort of combined what I liked in both rooms. Next step- try to find the fabric for cheaper than $20- 22 dollars a yard ( BIG YIKES!. and guess what- I found an online fabric store and the carried the exact fabric I needed for $10-12 a yard and shipping total was only $10. HOORAY!!! so, my mom came over yesterday afternoon and helped me figure out how many yards we would need to make the bumper, crib skirt and curtains and I ordered the fabric last night!! I am soo excited! I can hardly wait for it to arrive so I can pick out a paint color for the walls and we can get to work on the bedding!!! I saw "we" but it probably is going to be more like me sitting upstairs in my mom's sewing room and talking her ear off while she sews everything. I usually add a stitch or 2 here, but she really is the BEST seamstress and I am soo thankful she can and is willing to sew for me and our family!!! Anyways- if you are interested- here are the fabrics I ordered and I will try to post some pics as the room comes together=) Tess is going to be here before we know it!
