{ Down Under }

How about a different post today? I wanted to share with you some other projects that I am working on.
Down Under is the theme of our baby's room. This is not our actual room, this is just a photo from the website. Our furniture is lighter wood, and we don't have the crib yet. We didn't want the traditional boy colors and after countless crib sets we decided on this.
I am working on the wall decor now. I wanted to paint some of the characters that are in this set for the walls. The room is pretty big. I went and bought canvas and paints earlier this week and I finished one painting the other night.
Here is the wall hanging that came with the set.

Here is my painting. I will paint the butterfly on cardstock and then cut it out and adhere it to the corner. This canvas is 10 x 10.

I am working on a large canvas now, 16 x 20, and I will paint a Kangaroo and a Koala on that one. I like the way the quilt looks and the animals are larger and will fit perfectly on the canvas (see the quilt below). I have three large canvases to do and I would like to do more small ones. It's pretty fun. I plan on sewing some pillows for the full size bed that is in the room and maybe some drape panels.
I will keep you updated on the room, paintings and the sewing. I have more time now that I am not working, which is really strange. I have been working for the past 18 years and time off is really nice.I bought fabric to sew receiving blankets and burp cloths. That is my next project.
