Oh is it Friday? I had no idea.

Today is probably the best I've felt in over a month.  To celebrate, I dragged my sorry butt to my sewing room and finished up a couple of nursery projects.  After all, the clock is ticking and this baby is going to be here before I know it.  (Although that clock could tick just a little faster, if you ask me)

I finally fancied up the little lampshade for my beloved milk glass lamp.
With ruffles!

To make the shade, I ripped 2 inch strips of plain white muslin, ruffled each strip and hot glued them onto my yard sale shade.  This was much easier and faster than the coffee filter shade I attempted for the floor lamp not too long ago...  that is still hanging out, unfinished, in the sewing room (aka failed project storage).

And then I dug through some fabric scraps from the baby quilt (which is still not quite finished...  noticing a theme here?) and made some mini buntings!  When the rest of the room is ready, I'll show you where I decided to hang them.
