My First baby theme!

I have never done a baby theme before. None of my friends are the baby type. And I'm not having one anytime soon.

A co-worker is pregnant and we are throwing her a baby shower. Which is tomorrow and I finished this today O.0
The reason why we are throwing one and not her mom is a long story. But anyway...

I wanted to stitch something up for her. I didn't have a long enough notice to do a big one and I didn't know what she was having until three days ago (he was shy).

I like those doorknob pillow hangy thingies. So I made it into one!
I'm very pleased with how well it turned out.

The pattern I got out of a booklet from the 80's, called I Love Miniatures, by Dale Burdett.

Last night we had some friends over and one of them brought me a gift. And to my surprise it was a bag stuffed full of floss! I was more then a little happy. She made my night!

And from the look of the binding on them, I want to say that they are at lest from the 1980s. Ooh, vintage!
I remember what the ones my mom used back then and they look just like them.
So now I have to go through all of me current thread and check to see if the numbers have changed or the dye lot changed. I hope not. Wish me luck!!
