The baby's room is finally ready! It would have been ready a long time ago if I had not decided that the walls needed painting when we cleared my sewing things out. Thank you for all your hard work, Mr. Mordecai.
Here's a cross stitch that I finished a few years ago. It's the first one I've successfully finished, probably because it was printed like a coloring book, and all I had to do was fill in the lines. Mr. Mordecai made a beautiful frame for it recently, and it's nice to have it hanging up where we can enjoy it.
Here's the changing table. We didn't have one for Red Chief (no room), but we were lucky enough to find this floor model on clearance. It matches the crib really well. It has a few dings, but since Red Chief's bed has little teeth marks and his dining chair has fork engravings, we figure it would happen anyway.
I like the pictures here. They're from an old daybook that I used in high school with illustrations by Mary Engelbreit.
The crib. We also got this as a floor model, before Red Chief was born. The rocking chair we got at a yard sale. It doesn't really match, but oh, well. You can't see the other side of the chair, but by it is a hideous pinkish-purple nightstand that I bought secondhand and have been meaning to repaint. It houses a lamp, books, and a water bottle for nighttime feedings.
We took the walls from tan to a yellow-tinted white. Doors are painted very pale yellow.
Little dresses waiting for a little girl. Thanks to everyone who has given us clothes--I've hardly had to buy anything new.
