Baby shower fun!

First of all, I need to point out that I'm having problems with the way my pictures are uploaded. If I upload a picture after uploading one prior to it, then the second picture appears above the first when I want it below. I used to be able to move them around and put them where I want them, but blogger isn't letting me do this. As a result this post, containing lots of pictures, might seem a bit disjointed.

Last weekend we attended the Co-ed baby shower for our Son and Daughter in law. It was like no other baby shower I've ever attended! It was a Moroccan theme complete with belly dancer and henna tattoo artist! Bravo Autumn and Genna for a job well done!!!

Above is a picture of the pillows I made for the baby's room. The Baby's room decor is vintage. My DIL purchased an old fabric baby book at an antique fair and wanted to turn the pages into pillows. The middle of each pillow has a page from the baby book. The prairie points were done with a continuous piece of fabric. A new technique for me that I really enjoyed implementing.

This is one of two fabric garlands that I made for Sophie Grace's bedroom. Only one has her name on it. In the background you can see the large scarves that were hanging overhead. They were very appropriately decorative and gloriously shade providing at the same time.

This is a little dress I made for Sophie Grace. There also is a little matching headband.

This is a blanket (not quilt) that I crocheted the edges of. This is something my grandmother used to do and I thought someone in the family should still be doing this work so I taught myself how. I also made a burp cloth and a bib to match. The bib didn't get crocheted edging, I used ric rack for decoration instead. The flannel fabric has little kitties on it and the words 'daddy's girl' on it. The back is a yellow minkie type fabric with raised hearts.

Here is an example of the henna tattoo artist's work. She was busy working on everyone for four hours. She is an amazing artist!

The Los Gatos Creek runs right next to our host's home, AKA "The Creek House". It's just spectacularly beautiful. The perfect place for this special event.

So many in attendance not everyone fit in the shot. A good time was had by all! Sophie is a lucky girl. She already has a very large fan club!
