McKinley and I will be wearing pink and brown this Easter Sunday, so I thought I'd try my hand at sewing some coordinating ties for the boys. I found an easy tutorial here that makes a good-looking tie that fastens around the neck with Velcro.

It's time to post some more nursery progress pictures. This might be the last nursery post for a while. I have at least two more projects to complete but I know they will take me even longer to finish with the wee one claiming my free time these days!
I had a little breakdown a few weeks ago (before I had Mckinley) over the crib bumper. I was stuck. I had cut the fabric but the fabric wasn't lining up when I tried to sew all the layers together. So I called my mom, and in over-emotional-crazy-pregnant-woman-tears expressed my inadequate sewing skills: "I can't do it! It's too hard!" She calmly reminded me that she'd be here in just a few days and would make it all better.
And, as promised, LaWanna arrived with her sewing machine in tow and was ready to get to work. By the time I was released from the hospital, the bumper was done. Mom fixed all of the problem areas I had created and made it look like it had been sewn by a professional. I love it!
After that, she got right to work on the curtains. I had purchased the fabric, but that was as far as I'd gotten. Mom sewed the panels and we hung them under the cornice board I made.
I love this room! And of course, McKinley loves it too.
