...A Quilt, for a SPECIAL baby, my absolute NEW LOVE!!! :)
One of my old college roomates informed me that she was pregnant a few months ago, so it was time to give her a baby shower... they chose a day at the end of November, I had to hurry up and "create" something FAST. It seems to me that as soon as October hits, life gets overwhelmingly busy... I thought about it, knew what I wanted to do, I asked my friend Sharon for help with the back part, it was embroidered, and my machine isn't that "talented." And that's as far as I got until 3 days before the shower... AHHHHHH!!! Have I ever mentioned I work better under pressure?? Well let me assure you that this probably one of the busiest weekends in November, and I ended up pulling it off, BARELY! and actually finishing it with 30 minutes to get ready, yes I said get ready, and that was for the shower in the OC!! THANK GOD I had requested the day off... I know, I know, I cut it REALLY REALLY close this time!! I was so happy with how it turned out though, totally made the stress worth it! Here's a couple of pics of the process... and the final product...
LOVE THE FABRIC!
the front and back of it... my friend Sharon embroidered "LOVE" strategically all over a white piece of fabric.. I wasn't sure how I felt about it at first, but, I LOVED how it turned out!
sewing away!!! :)
ALL DONE!!! and with minutes to spare!! ;) Cute huh?? Baby still doesn't have a name, so I passed on "personalizing" it...
...and my mom knitted this one for baby!!
