More Showers of Fun!

Today I would like to share with you the items I made for the shower.  The first is the signature quilt.  I used Brenda Riddles (Little Acorns) pattern named "Remember Whoo Loves You" as my inspiration.  Chelsea collects all things owls and I knew she would love this.  I received a list of special women from her Mom and Diane and sent out blocks for their signatures.  It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed doing the applique.  It is the first quilt that I have quilted by myself and I did enjoy the process.

While visiting dear girlfriends (The Stars) in Ohio.  I saw lovely towers made from various pieces of china.  As soon as I got home I began looking for pieces to make my own.  I used Gorilla Glue and I can tell you for certain that these pieces are stuck together for life.  Note to self: read instructions and do not get glue on bare skin.  Hard to remove!  The cute bride and groom cupcake toppers came from Sur La Table.

I used the top of the towers for flowers but you could just as easily use them for candles or candy.  The cookie cutter is a wedding dress and was made from Lavender Shortbread.

I plan on using these china creations for years to come.  So much fun and very little expense and work.

Chelsea, knowing how much I love EmersonMade, purchased this lovely pin as a thank you gift for me. Isn't it pretty?  I can't wait to wear it!

Showers of blessings!
