Rock A Bye Baby

This is how I spent my week. I had so much fun!
I decided it was time to get the cradle ready for Oliver's first visit to East Aurora-date to be determined-but I wanted to make sure I was ready.

I loved the baby quilt I saw at 6.5 sts and thought this would be an opportunity to try a similar one on a small scale.

I recovered the bumper pad that came with the cradle and made sheets because I couldn't find any ready made that were the right size. I just made them like a big pillow case with extra room at the bottom opening for tucking in. I also thought a couple of wet proof pads might help out since I only made 2 sheets. I came up empty handed when I tried to find the water resistant pads for them so I used inexpensive placemats cut down and covered with fabric and a layer of thin batting. Doesn't that sound cheesy? Honestly, no one would ever guess so don't tell.

One more little project will complete the cradle and then we will be already for our babe's visit.
