Not much going on

No quilting going on around here. Just a nice sunny weekend with a party, shopping and movies. Kind of taking a break after that non-traditional baby quilt. I have to warm up my creative bones. I'll try to start with something small.
The baby shower was fun. It's always fun to see all those little clothes. I think every shower I've been to in the last 10 years, I've learn something new. It's so confusing these days on even how to lay a newborn down. In my day, we laid or babies on their tummies. That's a NO-NO today! There are so many new products out there, I don't even know what or how to use them. But the shower was still fun!
I'm sure you are all wondering what this Play doh is all about.
It was one of our party games. We were told to make a cute baby. I was influenced by the party decorations and of course, my own quilt and diaper bag. So I made a cute little Elly.
She even has a wrinkly bottom. How cute is that?
I know I wasn't following the rules, but I was having fun!
I won't be back till I have something new to show you. Maybe I'll get around to cutting into some of the new decorator fabrics I've just received. Some I've order online, one I inherited from cousin Linda and some I just bought. Wish me more luck, it helped the last time.
Take care, Brandie

Elly is darling! I hope you save her! Wrinkly bottom is the best. I played that game once at a shower too. Mine was a non-traditional baby as well. I made two peas in a pod for mine. After all, I am a mother of twins. :-)

Your little elephant is adorable, that coming from a gal that has a special place in her heart for elephants (after working for RB&BBC for 2 1/2 years). I've not been to a baby shower in so long. I live to far from the baby producing members of my family, and evidentally just hang out with too old of a crowd here, lol. Sounds like you had a nice weekend.
Luck with your new fabric!
