These are two of the gifts that I sent to my granddaughter Nikki this week for her baby shower. The first is a little bag I made in my embroidery machine. It holds a container of baby wipes and I love the heart quilting on it. The second is a rag quilt I made a while back for her, but just sent it this week. The other thing I sent her and didn't take pictures of it are some party favors for the shower. I embroidered on some sparkly felt the words "It's a girl" and it had baby feet on it and then the baby's name "Serenity Rose". They were bag toppers and I put together some bags of candy and then stapled the bag toppers to them. They were really cute. The last thing I sent was 2 pairs of peridot earrings. As the baby is supposed to be born in August and my birthday is in August, I will have plenty of presents for years to come to send to this little girl. I started with a pair of peridot studs, because they are going to pierce the baby's ears right away and then I sent a pair of diamond and peridot hoops for when she is a little older. I am still working on another Sunbonnet Quilt for the baby and some other things that will be finished way before she arrives. This weekend will be mostly devoted to finishing those things up.
Sunshine and hugs,
