Baby Shower

Today was my daughter's baby shower and she lives in maine and i am in wv so it was different doing this high tech.. we skyped the shower and it was funny watching it on the computer screen.. but at least i got to see her... She was surprised with her "cake" it is the only thing that we have been able to send her without her knowing about it in advance. Someday when i figure out how to post pictures I will put them on.

So now we have to wait for the due date of april 20th.

Nursery curtains

I have been working on curtains for my daughter's nursery this past week... the window curtain was pretty easy as it was just a couple of panels with clip hooks to hang it by. The curtains for the closet spaces were another matter. I decided that i would cut animals from fabric and iron them to a twin sheet that i had already sewn to the correct size for the closet. Sounds pretty simple unless you are a newbie and i spent 3 evenings trying to figure out how to cut the animals the correct size and colors. I am hoping to post some pictures as soon as i can figure out how to do this. Just wanted to thank anyone who happens to read this for there help from the bessage board.

towel cake

I just finished making a towel cake for my daughters baby shower. It came out better than i thought it would since this was my first attempt. The towels had animals on them that she is using in her nursey. I hope to post pictures soon but i am not sure exactly how to do this. I will let you know when i get this done.

I am working on an explosion box for my daughter's baby shower. i have an idea to have this box be a year long box of pictures. i hope to be able to upload pictures of this as soon as i have finished this. She is having the nursey done in an jungle theme and this animal kingdom cartridge is perfect for this. i have gotten so many ideas from other blogs that this is turning out to be a lot of fun. Just have to get it done quickley as the whole thing has to be shipped to maine from west virginia. the post office and UPS loves me.
