For a new grand baby that is! And I for one, can not wait!!
The new baby girl’s nursery is now installed and for the most part complete. After sorting through hundreds of paint samples the baby’s mother settled on the most delicate orchid color. The perfect, really soft shade that gives the room a light and airy feel. Along with the new, plush gray carpet this room is the most serene, peaceful place I’ve been in in a very long time. This is just the effect the new mama was looking for. So calming and peaceful. Hope the little one feels it, too!
With still about 9 weeks to go there is plenty of time for the momma to create the wall art she has in mind. There is a still a set of trundle drawers, the length of the bed, to be put under the bed. Also, a glider and possible a bookcase to come for the fourth wall you don’t see. It is not a large room but a cozy one, just perfect for what is needed!
The mobile was created by my sister, Aunt Kim, who drove for two days to get here and surprise everyone at the baby shower! It worked! The mobile fits in perfectly with the room. She had no idea that circles would be a theme but then I do believe we operate on the same wave length!
And this is the daughter that is fascinated with circles. Can you tell? Hmmm I wonder where she gets that from??
I knew I wanted to create a quilt with a circular theme. I settled on an impro quilt using Kona cottons with inset curves, focusing on grays and purples with other colors thrown in for the pop factor.
As I was playing with layouts of the 10 1/2″ squares, one of the blocks started to take on the look of a heart so I just went for it. Pretty sweet, huh?
Kanga Roos quilt
An original improv quilt
1/8″ – 1/2″ spaced organic lines
P.S. Perhaps I should explain why the name, Kanga Roos, for the quilt?
Daughter’s last name is Roos and with her dry sense of humor and, I suppose, being tired of people asking if you had picked a name, (even before they knew the sex of the little one), she started telling people they were naming the baby Kanga. Kanga Roos. 🙂
