Diaper Cake

I made my first-ever diaper cake for Emily and Steve's BBQ/Baby Shower and I am thrilled with the end result.   No rain for the BBQ/baby shower, but it was a hot, hot, hot day.  I know the expectant Mom had to be uncomfortable, but she was a trooper.   Thought I would share some pictures of the diaper cake, which eventually will be dismantled so that the baby can wear the diapers, the sneakers, use the receiving blankets and baby washcloths, and play with the little toys.

Rambling Rows Baby Afghan

The Rambling Rows baby afghan is finished!  This is the Cottage Creations pattern.  It was so much fun to knit.  I gave it to the expectant mother (my daughter) on Saturday.  The colors match those in her nursery bedding set. 

I used Lion Brand Vanna's Choice yarn "Sapphire" and Vanna's Choice Baby in colors "Bluebell", "Aqua", "Sweet Pea", and "Chocolate Cake".  Below is a closer photo.  The "Sweet Pea" looks a bit washed out in the photos.  In person, I am thrilled with the colors and how well they match the purchased bedding.

Since I am so pleased with the finished baby afghan, here is one more photo.
