Saturday started off with a soccer game this morning at 9am and then I went over to our city's annual parade at 10am. It lasts all day with music, games, food, and activities. The celebration will end at 10pm with fireworks.
I couldn't resist showing you this darling picture that I took this morning at the soccer game. I got there a little late and as he was running past. . . he noticed me, flashed me a big grin, and shouted with sweet enthusiasm. . . "Hi, Grammi!" I can tell you. . . it melted my heart!!! He's really having a great time playing soccer.
Later in the day I went to a baby shower. This is what I made to take with me to the baby shower.
Yesterday, I made this nursing cover using some of Sandi Henderson's new fabric collection called Meadow Sweet 2. I tried out the Nursing Cover Tutorial over at Diary of a Quilter. Amy is a dear quilting friend that I met several years ago now at American Quilting. She's also a darling person and it's so fun to know her in person. Go check out her blog. You will enjoy it.
I also made a Diaper Clutch using another one of Amy's great tutorials. You can find the tutorial HERE.
Of course, if you go to the effort of making a baby gift you may feel kinda obligated to make a handmade card to go with it. I know I do, so this is what I threw together using a cute stamp set and some coordinating paper. I think it turned out cute for 5-10 minutes of effort. It doesn't hurt to stamp the envelope too. Just for good measure.
Here's a cute polka dot bag I had on hand with an aqua organza ribbon. Aqua is one of my newer favorite colors. The gift is now ready for taking to the baby shower.
