Curtains, Quilt, and "Camping"

I’ve decided that even though the curtains did not come out like I had imagined, I am just going to leave them alone. They will serve their purpose whether I change them or not, and again, Ellie won’t care. Here is a picture of the curtains.

I had yesterday, July 4th, off work! I love having days off during the week – I don’t get very many of them! I have to save all of my sick days for Ellie and I don’t have any vacation time until April since I’m brand new at my job. So I goofed off a little. My mom and I had lunch together and then I started sewing the quilt squares together! I feel like I totally redeemed myself for the curtain mishap with how adorable this quilt is going to be! Since it isn’t fancy, just squares, I was able to get the entire front piece done!

The squares with the animals are flannel, the pink squares are super soft cuddle fabric, and the other three (dots and stripes) are just cotton. The back of the quilt will be the solid pink cuddle fabric. It’s a little big for a baby, but she won’t use it for a long time. Plus it’ll fit her bed once it becomes a toddler bed. I love it so much!

This weekend is my annual family camp-out. I won’t be sleeping in a tent. I have a hard enough time getting comfortable in my bed; I’m not going to try the ground! It gets really hot in the tent, too, and I don’t think I can deal with that.  It’ll be a whirlwind of a weekend, and so much fun! I love seeing my family.

I’ll be sure to post for Bump Saturday!
