Bless the Baby

(click on the photos for a larger image)



I'm finally sharing pictures of a pillow I made for my baby cousin, Henry. Isn't he adorable? His nursery is done in tiffany blue and chocolate brown. I made a tie-on pillow with paisely fabric and matching grossgrain ribbons. Henry lives in California; his mommy Lorie, a very talented photographer and awesome Mom, is my husband's father's sister's daughter - ("cousin" is easier, isn't it?).

Thanks for all your encouraging comments! Hugs and love right back at ya.

p.s. I watched the cutest movie this week, Calendar Girls with Helen Mirren. Go rent it or Netflix it if you haven't already! It is wonderful British fun, very tastefully done and inspired by a true story.

Henry was a name on our list when we were trying to decide on a name for our Zack - I've always loved the name Henry - how it sounds and how it's a good strong classic name. He's a cutie pie! Darling finish and looks like he likes it :)

CALENDER GIRLS is such a treat - those ladies were a hoot.

I adore 'Calender Girls', too! The first time I saw it was on a plane to the States, and I remember crying my eyes out, right there!

The pillow you made for Henry is gorgeous, and so is the little gentleman himself:o)
