A simple skirt and baby shower ideas

This past month, I headed out to see my daughter, son, and their families. I had seen a skirt here. I called my daughter and asked her to send me her measurements. She did so and I went shopping.

I hate looking for fabric. I don't seem to have the taste or should I say I don't have the confidence in my taste in fabrics. It took me forever to find what I wanted and I hope that she likes it. When I got to her house, I asked her to model the skirt.

It doesn't look too bad and it fits her quite well.

Here is a look at the back.

While I was at my daughter's home, she showed me the things that she had made for a recent baby shower. I was so impressed I took lots of pictures, but I will only share a few. These are the flowers that she made from tissue paper and hung from the ceiling.

Here is one of the absolutely beautiful pins she made for a thank you gift. I found the tutorial here.

That's all for now!

  1. You're so sweet - yes, thanks for the skirt! And the pins were technically "favors."
