Sewing Project

22 Feb

I have been searching for curtains and some pillows for the nursery and have not found anything I liked so I decided to sew them myself. (I guess those fibers classes I had to take when I was getting my Art degree do come in handy). The nursery seems to be almost all pink, chocolate and white and I found some great fabric yesterday to coordinate:

curtainsThe curtains are WAY too long so I will be finishing up the one side, hemming and adding some finishing details later today.

Here is the pillow:


Beautiful weather in DC!

8 Feb

We have had wonderful weather this weekend! Bright, sunny and in the 60s- perfect weather for Kerry to wear shorts. We went to Annapolis today to celebrate mom’s birthday (her birthday is tomorrow) and had a great lunch at the new Austin Grill.  And, we even got a picture!

meandmom209I am officially at 32 weeks and 3 days (only 53 days to go) and she has definitely dropped some. It must have happened over the weekend because my clothes are fitting a little different than they did on Friday and my heartburn is not as bad.

Mom has been working on a watercolor for the nursery and we got a sneak peak today. It is really great and it is a little hard to tell in the picture below but there will be a giraffe, monkey and toucan when it is all complete. We think it will look great in our nursery.
