April Shower

Last week's vacation ended with a surprise baby shower for my younger sister in Philadelphia. What fun! Here I am with my mom and sisters. Doesn't my sister look glamorous? I don't know how she does it, when I was pregnant I swear I looked haggard at all times.

Here she is again with her growing belly and her growing family.

The food was delicious and the games were fun, but my favorite was the presents. I love giving! The Bright Ideas quilt I've been working on forever was for her new baby - I could just never say it in case she was reading my blog.

And my twin sister is a knitter. Isn't this sweater, hat and mitten set just adorable? I wish I could fit into them.

As you can see, my sister had the same thought!

And here are some random photos from vacation, the horse and buggies that shared the road with us,

the teams working the fields,

a potting table that I want to make for myself.

So, after all that fun, I was dreading coming back to work, but guess what! We got free 15-minute massages at work today! Life is good!

What a fun time! Your sister does look quite glamourous pregnant. I know I didn't look that good. She looks like she was pleased with with the beautiful quilt and the sweater. Just adorable!! Looks like you were in the Lancaster area too! I was there at the AQS show last week, lots of buggies out and about.

What fun. Your sister is glowing. I also love that potting bench.

What a great place to live! Your sister does look glamouros. I think it's partly the dress she's wearing. It really suits her in style and colour. Also for some reason taller women look good pregnant. My neice is 5'9" and when she was pregnant with her twins people were always saying how elegant she looked.

Erin, I am speechless over the quilt, WOWEE! What a lovely job you did and I was thinking about this type of pattern and rainboy idea driving home from work today, You have inspired a Godwink. You sis is gorgeous and I bet you were too! We never feel glamorous when it is ourselves.... Love, Em

It looks like you had such a great time and your sister looks fabulous. I didn't look good prenant either - too short! Your quilt turned out great like all of them - you pick the best colors! Lisa

I am sure you looked great pregnant. You probably just FELT haggard. Lucky sister you have with her hand made quilt and hand knit sweater! Those are wonderful gifts.

Hi Erin! Aren't you all gorgeous! What a beautiful family!

I bet your sis was over the moon to receive the quilt for your soon-to-be niece or nephew. Well done, it looks incredible.
