Okay...did I get your attention? Trust me, that ship has sailed!
I have two very special people expecting their own bundle of joy in the next couple of months.
For the last several months I have been planning, cutting and stitching a baby quilt for the sweetest girl I have ever known. She is a co-worker, but so much more than that. A true friend. I have often thought to myself that I would love to be more like her. She is so serene...an inner beauty...calm...peaceful.
Stitching a special quilt for her little guy was a pleasure...
I saw the nursery before it was an official nursery...so I had an idea of the color scheme. I thought something simple but graphic would fit right in...
Clean lines....using moda crossweaves...
of course, hand quilted with perle cotton....Valdani, of course!
and on the back, organic fabric in the most adorable dog print..
and a special label for the little guy...washed and dried for soft, crinkle, wrinkle goodness!
happy baby, Janelle!
The next little guy...is my own kin...another great nephew...a brother to Enzo!
His mommy is dressing the nursery in a lovely grey and off white. Fluffy clouds add a calming touch...
so cloud-making has commenced...for a mobile
I simply cut out cloud shapes from wool/rayon felt in both off white and slightly grey....and stitched with grey perle cotton...again Valdani!!!
they are lightly stuffed to give them just the right amount of fluffiness...stayed tuned for the finished project.
