A few weeks after the fact, but better later than never, n'est-ce pas? Finally, photos of the second of the two baby showers that I threw for my sister, this one at her place in Boston. I found those Martha Stewart tissue paper flowers & after that, the theme was set. I stamped invites in two shades of blue flowers to match.
The party was great & I got to see several of her friends that I hadn't seen since Terri's wedding, in 2001. I also caught up with an old friend of Terri's from high school, with whom she recently re-connected. Turns out, they currently live about 2 blocks from each other, over 400 miles from where we grew up! And, last, but certainly not least, I discovered that one of Terri's friends is a follower of my blog. That was super-cool to find out & it was really great to talk to her. She is trying to convince me to move to her neighborhood in the Boston area, and, if we ever move up there, she has me convinced!
Terri received some really great gifts, both practical & really creative. In addition to the super secret quilt, she received several handmade items, including the adorable sock monkey shown above.
Now that the showers are over & the quilt is finished, I'm attempting to get to things in my life that I was neglecting while planning & sewing & so on. You may actually see a few non-nephew related posts. But, not for long. He is due in 6 weeks, after all :)
