a day later than planned, due to flight cancellations, I am back from Chicago
and I owe you some pictures of the baby shower... are you ready?
since my friend is expecting a boy, blue was the dominant color
to give it a European touch, it was themed a tea party baby shower
every detail was color coordinated, really, my color loving eyes were shining of happiness at the sight of it
it was perfect
the wonderful ladies who organized and attended, the amazing and delicious food, the beautiful flowers...
a little Dutch corner at the table, with 'beschuit met muisjes', stroopwafels
and the chocolate cake I made with a decoration for the occasion, you can find the recipe here
a well deserved and perfect celebration in the honor of our dear and pretty pregnant friend!
usually I don't post pictures of people, but in this occasion I thought it was appropriate to show
a glimpse of the beautiful future mom and her lovely American friends who put this amazing event together for her
of course we spoiled the future mom with gifts
and I was very happy to see how much she appreciates the baby blanket I made for her
the twins who attended the baby shower loved it too, as you can see
~ smile ~
when you look closely at the blanket
you see the middle cable is a little shorter than the other two
I did that on purpose, to simulate the image of mom and dad taking care of their new baby
this yarn knitted up so soft and relatively fast on 7mm needles, I might work with it again in the future
if you are interested in knitting this blanket yourself, please visit my shop or click directly to the pattern
also, the future mom ordered a sheet set in the Dutch theme red-white-blue
I made the first one and took it with me to Chicago
super cute, if I may say so myself
we put the sheet in the bassinet for the picture, but it will be used in baby's bed once he arrives
it doesn't get more Dutch than this, does it, haha
I hope you enjoyed the baby shower update and wish you a happy weekend
it's the long weekend in Canada, happy Thanksgiving if you are celebrating!
