Da da da Done!

So, I FINALLY  have Darcy's room ready to welcome the little girl.  Her crib and dresser are painted and in the room, and I've finished all the crib linens that I'm going to be making.  (Well, I may sew more sheets come summer, but I'm not committing to that now). 

I have her clothes sorted into the drawers of her dresser (how are six drawers already packed?), and the newborn and 0-3 month sizes have been washed.  I've also washed the carseat cover and the bouncy chair cover in anticipation of her arrival, but I have to dig the carseat base out of storage. 

In actuality, Darcy will probably spend the first month in a pack 'n play in our bedroom so I have easy access to her in the night, but we'll see.  However, when she is ready to move into her own room, this is what will greet her:

I'm little frustrated by the hitch in the crib skirt, but it can't be helped since this is a drop-side crib.    I am, however, extremely proud of sewing my own ruffles and the crib bumper came out exactly how I wanted it to.

I wish I could show you the rest of the room, but it's covered in junk that I'm still sorting, cleaning, washing, assembling, etc.   It definitely still needs a few homey touches, like artwork and a pretty lamp, but were she to arrive early, I'd be ready to meet her.

  1. so cute! great job, mama! question: is there a lever or something that causes the hitch? could you just cut a slit in the crib skirt so that it falls around it? i have no idea if that would work, just though i'd make the suggestion from one perfectionist to another ;)
