I have really put a lot aside to finish a gift for Roan’s preschool teacher who is a blessing in our lives. Some Flickr people originally were my inspiration in thrifting the cradle and doing the watercolor stain. Unfortunately, I had one hell of a time trying to photograph it.
I had to put aside my usual battle with being a perfectionist, as the stain that was on it was difficult in some curved areas to remove. I figure this is a lesson that I can pass to my young child, that it is best to just have tried…but you know how it is when you have a vision in your head of a final product.
Saying that, I will toot my horn to say I was more than pleased with the mattress and the quilt.
I think the gift will be much loved.
