Baby Shower Projects...

As I mentioned in a previous post, this past Saturday
was our assistant pastor's wife's baby shower.
Mom and I both were busy preparing things for it.

Mom put together a quilt from pieces that

the baby's great-grandmother cut before she passed away...


I crocheted a baby afghan as well
as some matching crocheted bibs...


I also crocheted a little stuffed duck
(the theme was ducks)...


And mom used it to go on top of the diaper cake she made...



For food we brought foot-shaped sandwiches, onion dip,
cucumber sandwiches, ambrosia salad, & yellow chocolate duckies.

Here is the cake that I made...


I was going to make duckies out of frosting,
but I didn't buy the right frosting (to save money),
so I used duckie candles and cut off the wicks.

Here was the table of delicious foods :-)...

The shower went very well and we had quite a few visitors.

Well, I just thought I'd share.
I hope everyone's weekend went well.
