A Good Quilty Week…..and ahhhhh …A Baby Shower!

Such a good quilty week. Tuesday my weekly breakfast with my quilty friends Evelyn and Carol….Wednesday night , weekly sit and sew---my cheeks hurt from laughing…..Friday night a quilty dinner exchange!!! Last January another friendship group I meet with, decided we would pick names and take a year to make a quilt for the person we picked. Friday night was our dinner and quilt reveal, and wow, the quilts were wonderful. Here’s a peek at some of the beauties and the butterfly quilt is MINE!!!!!!!!! Thanks for the oh so pretty quilt Lillie…I love it and it is so beautifully made. Fourteen quilts exchanged in all....so more pictures to follow!

Today was Baby Polka Dots shower and was so, so, so, so much fun. My DIL has a car theme in the boys room, and her friend Adrianna who hosted the shower ordered wooden cars for all of us to paint. It was so much fun to sit and paint and visit, and of course lots of eating was happening too. And finally a chance to use my wonderful cupcake stand that my friend Lani gave me!! This little guy got a HUGE pile of cutie patottie outfits. He is going to be one stylin’ little guy! Sixteen more days and Little Polka Dot becomes a big brother! So much in the moment not many pictures taken

I am so grateful for all my wonderful quilty friends and so grateful for the wonderful family and friends that made the shower so special for our sweet mommy and her baby to be!! Happy week everyone!!!

Sounds like you had a great week. The quilts are all lovely. What a brilliant idea of having the wooden cars to paint at the baby shower too.
