I made this table cloth a couple of years ago for a swap. The patchwork side took quite a bit of time, but I think it turned out great.

I found the pattern on the DMC website for use of variegated floss. I simply switched out the colors.
IKEA Malma mirror that I painted with acrylics. I took a light gray and painted the mirror and then sponged on a darker gray to give it a mottled look. Then I used stencils to put on the leaves. I had meant to have a red leaf in there, but I misplaced the paint.
In March of 2009 I threw a baby shower for my friend. As part of her gift from me I made receiving blankets (I kept one of the blue for my son).
I made this cake back in March of 2009 for a baby shower. I used a soccer ball cake for the belly and the mini wonder pan from Wilton for the chest. I rolled out white fondant and draped it over the cake, then smoothed and shaped it around the cake. I cut out a brown band of fondant to serve as the tie that many maternity shirts have. Then I took green gel food coloring, mixed it with water, and painted it on the fondant. Finally I cut out four flowers from green fondant for the sleeves and tons of small brown flowers to add embellishment.
