On Sunday, my mini-group (there are 14 of us including me) threw me a baby shower.
This is the group quilt:
(No cats or kittens on this ABC quilt... They must be protecting my baby from my obsession. I've been pretty good about not haveing a lot of cat stuff for the baby.)
& a couple close-ups:
A is for Aries (the sign of the conception...) B is for balloons, C is for cow, D is for dog, E is for elephant, F is for fish, G is for giraffe...
S is for sheep, t is for teddy bear, U is for unicorn, x is for xylophone, y is for yo-yos. The friendship stars are in the corners - since the alphabet only has 26 letters.
The backing fabric:
& the lable:
Oh & the proud parents receiving the quilt:
(I have a knack for looking goofy in most photos...) Yes, I am "that" pregnant!
In addition to the quilt, we got a lot of gender neutral (yellows, oranges, & greens) onsies, socks, mittens, sleepers, etc. a boppy, a bath mat, a teddy bear, some food related items (a bowl that has a gyroscope to keep the food from flying) a fancy brand name basket "piggy bank" & some other stuff that I can't remember off hand right now...
After the party, we went over to a girl friends house - she serged a ton of flannel into receiving blankets & is going to embroider on a few more - since they were solid.
Hubby is going to have a fun time washing all of this stuff - before the baby even gets a chance to make it dirty. :o)
