After my online search for the perfect purple elephant fabric, I went to the local JoAnn store and bought some fabric. As it turns out, none of it has elephants (in fact, some of it has birds), and most of it is not purple, but green. But I'm very happy with...
This fabric is destined to be throw pillows to liven up the futon that somehow found its way into Little Sister's nursery.
And this fabric is for some to-be-determined crafts, including a very cute name banner I finished today. The pattern for the banner is from a lovely book called Winsome Baby by Nancy Halvorsen.
Since Baby's name is top secret, I will not show you the whole banner, but here's a look at one of the letters, so you can get a sneak peak of what it's going to look like. (Also for those of you who are trying to figure out what the baby's name is, this will give you a small hint. As a reminder, it's a name from the Bible. I chose the letter "A" because it is intentionally obscure; this will eliminate a couple of names, but you will find that most woman's names in the Bible have the letter "A" in them...)
Next up for the nursery is painting, so we're looking forward to big changes coming soon!
