Step 2 & 3

Steps 2 & 3 now complete. . .hooray! Big stress off my plate. But I had to call in for reinforcements. . .I was in waaaaaay over my head. Thankfully Julie was there to save the day and put most of this together for me. Directions are written assuming you know a lot of sewing knowledge and cutting the large pieces . . .that would have put me right over the edge. . especially with my back bothering me. Its extremely frustrating to try to cut fabric when your back hurts and you move the fabric with your belly every time you lean over the table! So annoying!

Thankfully I waved my little white flag and Julie stepped up to the plate. There is no way I would have got all this done by myself in the middle of tax season. . .just no way! I sent her home with the crib skirt and I am working on the quilt. And I can finish my bibs! Just like me. . .buy 40 projects in advance! Could be worse habits though!

Step 1 . . .Complete!

The pillow - Amy Butler fabric and Amy Butler pattern.

Took me just a few hours. . .I am a slow at this still but at least taking my time pays off. Step 2 is the fitted sheet. Julie will be here next weekend to hold my hand through that one. I am going to try and get the pieces all cut out and pinned by Saturday.
I am very happy with the fabric and the colors. . .everything is finally starting to come together! Hooray!

Making progress. . .

Brooke's room started out slow but it is coming along and looks so happy and bright!
from a flowered Grandma print to . . . .

happy green! This color matches perfectly with the Amy Butler fabric I picked out for her bedding.

All of the furniture is in. . .just need to make the bedding, finish decorating and we are good to go. . .I have about 9 weeks give or take a few. . .but only 4 weeks left of tax season and then I can really get things done!
