A wonderful Baby Shower at The Makery
It was a real shower of thought, love and support. A creative treat, a giggle, a reunion, and a marking of a moment.
Last Sunday afternoon we hosted the most wonderful baby shower and were so impressed by the creativity and effort invested in making this a really beautiful event we thought we would share with you.
Organised by Moira for her sister Kez, the event was top secret and the expectant mum was lured to The Makery by her husband under the guise of a super baby sale! How duped she was!
Kes was so surprised, delighted and overwhelmed by the beautiful room, filled with familiar faces,delicious treats and the knowledge that everyone was there to make a beautiful baby quilt for her future son!
The next couple of hours were spent designing and making a patchwork square each. Amongst birds, hearts, and noughts and crosses, the creations took on a real sense of occasion. The feeling of support and kinship was woven into the pieces and by the end of the afternoon a set of squares were finished and ready to be joined together.
A wonderful afternoon!
Over the next week team Makery will set to patch-working the squares together and a suitable blue backing will be added then wrapped in brown paper and tied up with string this will be then shipped to Kes with our best wishes for her future bundle of joy!
The finished masterpiece! Lucky baby!
