So, this past Saturday was just one of those truly wonderful days. Any day I get to spend with the girls is fabulous and memorable, but this day was even more special, as we gathered for Julia's baby shower! Thanks to Ellen for bringing us all together!
I must say- I have never seen such a parade of adorable hand-crafted items in my life. From Ellen's beautiful quilt to Mary-Heather's February sweater, mobile and sleep sack to Kat's blanket to Mames' washcloth, blocks and bibs to Loriz's handspun & knitted vest to Marnie's Alsace le Monstre...not to mention all the other ridiculously cute gifts bestowed that day. Suffice it to say- the "oohing" and "aahing" was in full force! The talent of these women astounds me!
Thanks to everyone who took good photos, some of which I'm borrowing here. (Thanks again, Marnie and Mames!) You can see more photos of the day and of these women's awesome projects on their blogs. (You might even catch a glimpse of one of the gifts I added to the mix!) As for my (formerly top-secret) projects, those will come in my next post. :)
All in all, a fabulous day. No shower games, just lots of crafy goodness and being surrounded by a bunch of warm, funny, and super talented women. I am truly grateful for these friends. Love you ladies!
PS: Here's a photo of me posing with one of the stars of the day, Marnie's creation, Monsieur Alsace le Monstre. As you can see, he stole my heart. Then again, how could he not?
