Baby shower numero dos!

Last Saturday, Rob and I threw a baby shower for our friends Ryan and Megan. Although is was a more low-key event than baby shower number one, Rob made sure that the food was first-class.

For those of you who have seen Ratatouille, yes, that is the dish from the movie! Here's the recipe we used. Rob also made two delicious frittatas.

We decided to have people create some freezer paper stencil onesies. Ryan and Megan don't know if it's a boy or girl yet, so we tried to make them as unisex as possible.


I made the baby a little pig because it'll be born in the year of the pig!

Even though he's small, the pig made quite the impact on Ryan.

Finally, I made them a quilt using the same fabrics as the quilt I made for Sarita, but in a coin quilt design. I created the pattern myself, I couldn't find a pattern on the web.

It's photographed on Ryan and Megan's green bedspread - I think the two quilts look good together, don't you?

Next post - my 250th post! I think it's time for a giveaway!

mari-

i've been "lurking" around your blog for a few months now, and I really enjoy your aesthetic. I'm new to the knitting game, and even newer to sewing (just three weeks ago I bought my first machine.) The images you post of the generous gifts you create are inspiring! thank you!

Oh the onesie with the 3 bunnies is just too adorable and I want that pig! I think it's great you made the pig for the baby born in the year of the pig. Pigs are wonderful. On the quilt; at first I thought the green quilt was the border it works so well together.

Love the onesies idea, how clever and they all look wonderful. The quilt is gorgeous, and I am sure the baby will love the green to look at. The little pig is so cute too.
