Yesterday we had a small family baby shower at the house for my daughter. Brooke and her husband cooked a delicious autumn dinner of roast pork, squash, green beans and brussel spouts and cornbread stuffing. Brooke also made a the cutest little onesie cake that she decorated. The cake it self was rich chocolate with homemade cherry jam filling. I really didn't get a chance to take a lot pictures. I was busy helping with the food and cleaning up. The day was fun and my daughter received lots of presents for the new little one.
The chair was a last minute thing I whipped up the night before. She kept telling us she didn't want a chair and her hubby came to me and asked if we could decorate a chair anyway. It was 8pm the night before the shower and I didn't think we could go to the store and get the chair and stuff to decorate. So I ran up the closet and remembered I had bought a bolt of light blue fabric a while ago for curtains but the color just didn't look right in the room. I grabbed a dinning room chair and started cutting. I made a loose cover by just measuring width and length and basically making sleeves. When I was finished there was a perfect size square of fabric from the scraps for a little pillow and then a long strip of fabric left over from the hem to make the bows. She really liked it because it was understated and she didn't want to sit in a frilly ruffly chair. The total process took about 3 hours. I was really surprised at how fast it was to make and that there was no measuring except for the the back and seat of the chair. (^_^)
