Baby bedding and handmade quilts…

18 Sep

 

The term bucket list..is new to me, but the concept is old..ideas..”oh, and I want to do this!”..according to the personality type, some can say that and then just go on with their every day life..is it just me? or does anyone else think..”oh, and I want to do or try this?!”  then it nags them until they do it???P1130699 A crib set..now, I have made many of these..since I have had 11 babies..but no two the same..and usually out of fabric I had around or someone had given me..necessity, the mother of invention.. 🙂  But, now I have the luxury of having a fabric shop and sewing business..so…”wow, this collection would make such a cute crib set!”….Then, you know you are really obsessed when you see this antique crib at your friend’s shop and you say..”Oh! that would show off the crib sets (that I haven’t even made yet) so well!..and…. it’s business, so I can buy it and write it off later for a tax deduction.”P1130694 Then, you add a baby quilt to the basic crib set..hand pieced…quilted by your self..when you have only quilted for a short time..

P1130691Then you get your son to set up the crib in your living room for a photo shoot..and..you move your living room around and your furniture goes into temporary places like your bedroom for an indefinite period of time..because you don’t know when the shoot will happen..

P1130702 Does anybody think I’m crazy yet??  Well, I do!  Especially, since I’m trying to keep up with home educating 8 children and we are planning the graduation of 2 of them..and did I mention..my physical health is not so great??

P1130709 Then, you call your friend, who has grandchildren, and a nice modern crib..so you can have a photo shoot on the modern crib..in case you would like to sell your crib set in the future..you need lots of descriptive pictures..

P1130714 Then you get to your friends..and she has you and 5 of your children stay to lunch..This was unbelievable to me!  Just 5 more, no big deal right??   When all that is said and done..Both shoots went well..Thanks to so many people!..Kezia took the pictures and helped make the beds 🙂

Olivia and Victoria did the sewing on the bumper pad and sheets…Victoria also helped me with the skirt..and I did the quilt and the children’s piano teacher..the best quilter I know..gave me help with some tough spots on the piecing of the quilt…

Soooo…what do you think?

Green sheet?   Grey sheet??

Modern crib?  Antique crib?

I would also like to give honorable mention to the side chair in the antique crib pictures…my dear husband went and picked this chair up on the side of the road a couple months back…It was covered in gold plastic..I had this “idea” to cover it in white linen..when I got it… it didn’t have a skirt, so I thought “a skirt would look so nice on this chair”…..I am enjoying this chair immensely in our living room..it is white and fresh…and it has been redeemed from the junk pile!…You can do so much with those side of the road finds!!
