We got to celebrate with one my most favorite couples at a baby shower over the weekend! Pregnancy is still such a funny, mysterious thing to me. I can't wrap my mind around the fact that soon these dear friends are going to have a baby. That lives in their house, for real!
After my trial run with a baby blanket, I decided to do another one for Baby Luther. I ventured into the world of blue and orange for this one, since it's going to a baby boy! I also embroidered a little "L" in the corner for their last name. BBL is as Southern as they come, and I didn't think she'd want to turn down a monogramming opportunity.
This one has longer, thinner stripes than the first one. I also tried hand-tying the quilt with embroidery floss for the first time - you can see it a little bit in the last photo. It's a super easy way to quilt, if you're nervous about sewing on top of your work!
We threw a few board books into the mix for baby's library, too, including Spot's First Christmas, some Dr. Seuss and Let's Dance, Little Pookie, which I think is just about the best title I've ever heard.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
