More furniture

It was a nice surprise to come home on Friday and the delivery man had dropped off a package. My dad bought us a bassinet. David put it together and it looks really nice. We like the size of the piece when it's all together. But also the little moses basket comes out and has handles. So we can carry that up and down stairs separately. And it can be used as a changing table too. Very nice!

Also this week I finished a small embroidered piece to be framed and put in the baby's room. I think it's super cute.

Here's the bassinet. It's in the second bedroom for now but it will fit nicely right in our room too.

Here's the cute embroidery. It's small..only about 4 x4. It will look great framed.

Big Finish

Tah Dah! I have finished my Quaker Halloween cross-stitch. I think it turned out really nice. I can't remember when I began but I really kicked it into gear this summer so that I could have it framed in time for Halloween. Now I am working on small piece to hang in the baby's room. After that...another Halloween. What can I say? It's my favorite time of year.

I'm so proud of this piece!

Here's a bit of detail.

Oh yes...and on a side note, the baby crib delivered. I think it looks nice.
