The End is Near....

OK. Claudia's chair is finished. Tessie won't let anyone see it. At least that was her excuse when I snapped this photo just as she was settling into it. Personally, I think that she is just having a bout of seperation depression....She knows that it is leaving tomorrow.

I don't want to make two trips to the post office, so I am going to get Sabiha's bassinet finished today and make sure that it is nice and dry. Then tomorrow I will pack them both up and send them out bright and early.

I am still having trouble getting Tessie to believe that the things that I am putting together are going to end up looking like the bassinet behind her. Sabiha, I am still having trouble getting a good photo of the fabric. It is cream with snow white sprigs on it. I think that you will like it. I hope.

I got the deleted bead jar out to find some feet for the bassinet. Tessie was delighted to see that.

Every time I pull it out, she gets excited because it is full of all kinds of beads, large and small, that have found their way in there because it was easier than sorting the colors and putting them back where they started.

You know her. Anything that is shiny, on a string and fitting around her neck is considered jewelry for her.

I am going to leave the jar open for the rest of the day. It keeps her occupied for hours.

Anyway, I have to go back to work now. Tomorrow I will be back to whatever is considered normal around here.....

See you then.

Lucky Sabiha! That is going to be one gorgeous bassinet! Tessie looks too cute standing up in that huge jar, decorated with all those beads.

Gorgeous Bassinet. Tessie looks quite happy up to her ankles in beads, and you have the patience of Job, LOL. Great job on the wicker..I have GOT to learn how to do that.

Oooh Wow!!!! How exciting is this!!!! I have no doubt what so ever, that it will be the most beautiful bassinet I have ever seen!!! It is such a great honor to see how it is progressing and all the love and time there is put in it!

Big X and Hugs,

The bassinet is absolutely gorgeous. I have to go back and reread how you did the bottom portion. It's amazing how you do your pleating! I have a question, what do you spray it with to get it to stay that way? I've used stiffy on the fabric and wonder if that's what you use before you follow this method or if you spray it after. Great work Casey! Carolyn

Carolyn, I do the pleats for the bassinet the same as my bed skirts. If you go to "bed tutorials" in the "Labels" section on the sidebar, you cna find the directions there in the earliest post. I use unscented,extra hold, pump, hairspray to hold. Several coats.
