I think the shower was a success. My daughter was very happy and a couple of times she was moved to tears. It was a wonderful day, and went off without a hitch - which is major for any of our Family Events. I am not an Event planner, they make me very nervous - even children's birthday parties put me right over the edge. Now that it is over, I can relax and get back to my stitching goals.
Below are some pictures of my finished little diaper Center piece. Besides my Little Bear at the top, there are little yellow flipflops and socks that reminded me of the only socks my daughter would ever wear (we just called them Gym Socks). And then to use of up rest of my "back of the bear", First I created this Taggy -- You can click the link to learn all about what a taggy.

I still have so much of this fabric left - and I have about four weeks before the baby is expected - so maybe I can come up with a few more ideas. Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
On a side note:
This is a picture of all the freebies I was gifted at the Retreat. Both Saturday and Sunday morning we received a gift bag -- all of these were in Sunday mornings.
Because I live in the North East United States, we are starting our rainy cold muddy season. So I will still be blessed with many indoor evenings perfect for stitching and with it being Day Light Savings time we have lots of extra daylight. Enjoy the day.
