No Slow Stitching today, I was at a baby shower

Today I went to a very special girls BABY SHOWER.
My daughter has a very close friend who has been there for her so many times. My daughter was her bridesmaid and now is beside her now that she is about to give birth to a beautiful daughter, or so we are told...... Today there was a gathering of close friends to celebrate the expected arrival of a baby..
Isn't she glowing.... And due in only 9 days...

There were beautiful cupcakes too.

And of course a special balloon to show the hubby.

Mother and daughter together.

And for all you GISBORNE QUILTERS... I'm sure you share with the grandma to be all the joy.
Look at that smile... A proud grandma...

And now for a gift I made.
I rolled up 3 pairs of socks, 2 singlets and 2 bodysuits to make this beautiful bouquet.
Not many people have seen this idea. It is so sweet.
The clothes went from this.

To this...

I also knitted a gorgeous little jacket but I forgot to take a photo.
 I am waiting for a photo to be sent to me and then I will post it...
Have a look HERE for it.

This is what I finished early on Sunday morning. 
So my slow stitching Sunday was actually knitting.
See what others did today over at
