I'm so excited to introduce to you Natasha the Wee Bunny. I've found that one of my favorite pass times is just looking at crafty blogs and getting new ideas for the baby's room and other goodies. I've been wanting to make a stuffed animal for the baby for a while i just wasn't sure if i could figure it out. I was looking at one of my new favorite blogs. Soul Mamma Thanks for telling me about her Steph! and found the cute wee bunies so i got the Pattern from the link, which is the same place Steph got the Pointy Kitty Pattern too. good times!

So last night i just decided to cut out the pattern and i'd work on it later.. ha! 2 hours later my bunny was done! yippee i love my wee bunny. She is so cute i had to name her Natasha. it just seemed right. I love it.

first the stuffing from an old pillow and some rice in the bottom to make her stand up

before she had her face and sweet turquoise bra joy! looking huge!

and the cute finished Natasha! Now i can make the Lion.. what i really want to make. I do love this bunny, and i am so not a bunny person!

Kim and i worked on the baby's room while she stayed with us i'm so excited about it. I decided that i would paint one wall green and then add some Blik later once i have the money. I am soo addicted to green these days that it had to be the color of the room. We picked field day green and i got some turquoise to repaint my sowing table. I loved it so much! brian came up with the idea to do the divider too, it was black

I figure if we have a girl we'll just add some pink and if its a boy we're good to go. Then i convinced brian to go to Estate Specialist Saturday after we went to the farmers market, just to look for a swivel rocker.. the old school kind that i wanted soo badly! and we found this great orange one! i absolutely love it!!! it rocks and swivels ahh i think i'm actually looking forward to breast feeding.. So here's what's been done so far.. i love my shear curtain too. I think the room is so great. it already looks like a kids room. You can't see the tile top table but it's the same color as the divider now instead of the blue in the first picture. I love it! I'll post more pictures as i go.. ahhhh baby's comin..
