Maternity leave days ten to fourteen

The baby's room is coming together.  I spent literally hours trying to sew a ruffle for the bedroom curtain, after much swearing and two broken needles I finally made it!

Sorry for the poor quality of the photos, I took them on my little camera. 
Basically I had the curtain already and I simply appliquéd some coloured fabric onto it and onto the tabs at the top.  That part was really tricky actually, but I am pretty pleased with the results, although they aren't perfect, but then neither am I.

I also strung up some bunting that I made in co-ordinating fabric, I got the colour way from the Jamboree range at Mamas and Papas:

On Friday I picked up some sample paint pots from B&Q that matched in too.  I have a small wooden trolley/toy box that I am going to paint with them, and maybe some picture frames too.

Hope you have all had a good weekend.  Even though I am not going to work tomorrow, I still have that Sunday evening feeling.  I think it is because Paul is back to work tomorrow, so I will be on my own.


  1. It's going to be lovely - so bright and cheerful. And cute for either sex - do you know which you're having?

  2. No we are waiting for a surprise! Really excited.

  3. Its looking so beautiful, i adore the curtains! I was like a thing possessed when i started my maternity leave - serious nesting instinct! Scarlett x

  4. that's great. why don't you make your own baby room stuff, specially for kids its very nice and easy to make some good stuff for them and its great too if you involved them too in this activity. nice job you did. thanks for sharing.
