Sewing Project

Table Goodies

quilt-to-be for the mom-to-be

I hosted a little baby shower at our house last weekend. My co-host planned a lovely little project for us to work on for the mom-to-be at the shower. We embroidered quilt squares for her little girl”s quilt. Lynnette cut out butterfly wings and body parts for us to hand applique on to the gorgeous fabric. It looked so chic, you could have charged hundreds of dollars for the finished piece (we sent the mom home with the squares–she”s a sewer herself). It was so relaxing, sitting in a baby-free house (that”s not counting the 7 in vitro babies in attendance), chatting, grazing, and hand sewing butterflies. I rather enjoyed myself.

    SEVEN in vitro? I swear, between me and seemingly every woman I know, Seattle”s going to need a whole lot more child care and school space very soon!

    Oh my gosh, the shower looks adorable!! I LOVE that fabric, did Lynnette pick it out or was Amanda already planning on using it? So cute! Wish I could have made it :(.

    You commented on my blog about my new thrifted dishes. Can you email me so I can ask you questions about them? :)
