Baby Shower

During my daughter (Megan) and son-in-law (Mark's) recent visit from England, I organized a baby shower for her.  They are expecting their first baby in January and although she was only 12 weeks at the time, I decided to go ahead rather than having to ship all the presents at a later stage.  They haven't bought anything yet but went home with a suitcase filled to the brim with nearly everything necessary.  A few items which she will use when baby is bigger, was left at home which we will take with on our visit next year.

Before I started on my quilting journey in 2010 I actually had time to do other things beside quilting :-)  Feeling rather bored whilst watching movies with my husband, I knitted baby stuff which to Megan seemed rather crazy at the time.  But, she is pregnant now....

The expecting parents.  They were married on the 25th of January 2013 at the Maldives.
As Megan absolutely adores Pooh Bear, I made this nappy cake with Pooh and friends. 
I also made a duvet cover featuring Baby Pooh with Tigger, Eyeore and Piglet also as babies.  I used a pre-printed panel I bought at a quilt shop and just added the back. 
All the presents.  Most of my colleagues at work gave money towards a rather substantial voucher which M & M spend at Baby City.

A Baby Banner which pattern I downloaded from Designs in Machine Embroidery's website and embroidered.

A green jersey with a teddy bear appliqued with satin - knitted by me.

A white one.  I knitted a blanket with this pattern as well in blue, green, white and pink squares.

A yellow romper embellished with a white teddy bear.  I knitted a bunch of socks as well. 

I found this cute Baby Shower image on the Internet and used it as a thank you card for all the guests.  I added a message from M & M with a chocolate.
