Ready for baby!

I've been doing some intense nesting the last several weeks, and now my little nest is all ready to bring a baby home to it. There has been lots of cleaning and baking involved, but I've mostly been best friends with my sewing machine. Here's what the baby's room looks like

I made all the bedding

Bryce and I refinished this Goodwill dresser together and I sewed the changing pad cover




Figured out how to make a diaper stacker without a pattern. It was quite a triumph!




Coordinating laundry bag from scraps


Nursing cover


Car seat cover

Not pictured: About a zillion hair bows, at least a dozen burp cloths and a couple of dresses I made.

And after all that I am still not done with the list of projects I want to finish before she comes.


Taken at 33 weeks, I'm 35 1/2 now.
