Baby Shower










I had a a very busy weekend. One of my very lovely cousins is having her first baby next month, so we had a little baby shower for her. Lots of beautiful food and gorgeous cup cakes which looked far too good to eat. The diet went out the window on that day. I decided to make Caz a floor quilt for her baby, but I didn't get it finished in time for the shower. I will finish quilting it before her baby arrives - no prizes for guessing what sex the baby is! I also made an Edward the Elephant, a bib, and some embellished onesies.


And couldn't let you go without an obligatory shot of Ellie Bella. She had a bit of a pamper last week, and her gorgeous coat is all gone - she is now looks like a rodent. My 12 year old son thought that she looked absolutely shocking, so insisted that we go out and buy her a pink hoodie!! Just wait until you see her in her little sundress for the Summer!

Oh, the cupcakes and oh, the beautiful colours you've used for the elephant and appliqué - yum!
And your dog, we have a dog that looks very very much like your sweet one and our dog is named Ella too! We call her Ella Bella Puppy Power.... long story there. She is off to the puppy parlour next week too. We keep her coat long, well at least I try to. Lotsa dreadlocks at the moment!
