Say hello to Mia!

So this little cutie-pie is Mia Luz Fullerton-Meléndez, sitting pretty at nine weeks old in her brand new nursery. I remember packing up this big parcel of fabric just before Christmas and sending it away to a far off place called Jupiter in Florida, USA. I had my fingers crossed that it would arrive in time.

I do love a good customer order and this one was very special. Mari approached me via my Etsy shop about ordering some of my printed fabrics for her new baby's nursery.  Mia was due just before Christmas and I had about 3 weeks to get the project done.  So began the longest conversation on Etsy to date (38 messages in total!) Everything was carefully planned by Mari with mood boards for colour and scale and we discussed measurements and patterns in detail -  It reminded me of when I was pregnant with Stanley and all the nesting instincts and excitement I had about my future baby - Mari was bursting with enthusiasm from the start (with just a hint of panic!) and was planning everything meticulously.  Her mum, Gloria, was to be the Queen of the sewing machine in those last few days before Mia was born and what a fantastic job she did!
I was so chuffed when I received these photos.  I love how the room is decorated with a white and grey colour scheme and then you get a whoosh of brights from all my prints and the little extra details! I couldn't have asked for a better result.
Love the wallpaper!

The cot below was designed and made by Mia's dad - beautifully simple and even this didn't miss out on the tiniest of cushions!

Thank you, Mari for all the photos and keeping me up to date.  I'm so pleased we had a chance to work together.

Meet the happy family:
