Success

Yesterday was the baby shower. I got up and made the diaper cake. So far all the diaper cakes I have made have been for baby girls, so this blue one was a new twist. I love the turquoise and brown together. After a wonderful brunch of egg and sausage casserole, sausage balls, three kinds of cinnamon rolls, fresh fruit, quiche, and cute little Petit Fores, it was time to open the gifts. The mommy to be received lots of goodies, including some of the Pottery Barn bedding I was trying to match. She received the crib dust ruffle and a baby pillow sham. Finally came the quilt. She loved it - but I was worried it wouldn't match. But it went perfectly! The fabrics were different but the colors were almost exact matches. Not too shabby considering I was working from a two inch by three inch picture I had printed off the computer!

I have started working on another UFO. This one is going to be a surprise present for someone so I can't show any pictures of the work in progress. I finished up the blocks yesterday and got the rows put together. I have got four of the rows sewn together - 5 more to go.

DS was sick last week but we thought he was on the mend. DD woke up this morning with a fever and a sore throat. Now DS is complaining that his throat hurts again too. I guess we will go see the pediatrician tomorrow. DD gets strep throat at the drop of a hat. Fun times!

Sarah, Did you write me an e-mail? I think you did and now I can't find it. If you did, will you please write me again.

Thanks!

Sarah, what a cute diaper cake. Glad that your pretty baby quilt goes with the rest.
I really like that flying geese quilt too.
