I survived the shower. It was a huge success. We had 22 people here. Lots of yummy food. Adorable petit fores. Lots of cute baby girl goodies. Everyone loved the diaper cake. Me and the friend that made it thought we should start making them to sell - so as to avoid having to get a real job! Both of us are lucky enough to get to stay home with our kids but our husbands complain about too many lunches out! Anyway...back to the shower. Everyone loved the quilt. The mommy-to-be's MIL loved it so much that she commissioned me to make her other DIL a quilt for their baby that is due in July. They don't know the sex but they have picked out some bedding for the nursery. I showed the MIL photos of my quilts. She fell in love with this one. Nice and simple! I think she wants 30's fabrics in soft blues, greens, yellows, beige (is there such a thing?). I told her that she could take her DIL shopping for the fabric and just send it to me but she said she wanted me to pick it out. OK!! Just one more excuse for me to buy fabric!
After the shower was over, we had one hour to relax before we were due at a birthday party for a very special little boy. We are all thankful that Jackson is here today. He was born with two of his heart valves reversed. He had open heart surgery when he was three days old. He went home from the hospital just over a week later. Today he is one tough little two year old!
Now we are finally home! I have picked up most of the mess. We are going to have hot dogs and chips for dinner. And petit fores or Girl Scout cookies for dessert! And then we are going to bed early!
