I may have been absent on here for awhile, but I can tell you it is not because I have not been making anything. My sister is having a girl in March and I helped her with the nursery. And by help I mean lots and lots of sewing and decorating.
My sister pretty much let me take control of the nursery. She wanted it in pink and grey chevrons. That was all she said. I used the pattern from Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones to make the crib bedding. You cannot see the bedskirt in this photo but it is just big grey and white chevrons.
We purchased a mobile on clearance and I stripped it of its former being. I hand stitched elephants out of felt and decorated them with ribbons and buttons. So far, it has been the hit of the nursery. It is cute, if I must say so myself. I didn't get a close up of the mobile with my camera, so the cell phone photo will have to suffice.
The baby shower was on Saturday and it had a "Breakfast at Tiffany's" theme. The baby's name is Audrey as my sister has had an Audrey Hepburn obsession for a while. My sister also has a love for anything Tiffany & Co. so it was a perfect fit for her.
Pinterest is a horrible thing when you are planning parties. You see all these wonderful ideas and feel you have to do them. Above is the tea party table.
My cousin made these wonderful Tiffany box cakes. They were perfect. The Tiffany punch is just Blue Raspberry Hawaiian Punch and lemonade.
We also had a candy buffet that was a huge hit. I found this perfect vase at Target. I love robin's egg blue so it will be a permanent feature in my house, now. All in all everything went perfectly. The baby is already spoiled (first grand-baby for my parents). I also made her a dress with the tutu bottom and a few ruffled minkee blankets.
I have a lot of quilting projects on the horizon to share on here soon. Now that the baby preparation is pretty much over I can get back to quilting.
