Roan and I made the rounds this weekend. Two birthdays and a baby shower. Luckily, one said no presents (huh?). They didn’t know they could have a lovely pillow for their child rather than a piece of plastic. Cousin Sam is a space boy. I probably would have been pushing it to do two Saturday morning anyway.
By the time we finished with party number two at the gym…I was done. So glad I had said I would make some easy goodies for the Baby Shower to follow the next morning. Did these Easy Peanut Butter Cups. I had to go old-fashioned, but if you have a microwave they will take you no time at all. I used left over Valentine muffin papers and sprinkles as toppers instead of chopped peanuts. Perfect for a girl baby shower.
I had purchased this fabric on sale at Joann’s. I loved the retro birds, but was so reminded of my own room as a girl with the little rosebuds.
My sister-in-law and I spent some time together making some receiving blankets. They are large enough for swaddling and so useful. When I was pregnant I thought my mom had gone crazy with all the receiving blankets she kept making me. I was clueless about spit up and blow outs. So they just seem the easy, soft thing to make. It also satisfies the urge to buy that cute reasonably priced flannel that Joann’s has sprinkled in here and there.
