Less than two weeks ago Kari contacted me about a baby gift set for a friend who was in labor --we were waiting until delivery to know the baby's name! I had an annoying head cold but was able to complete the items by the end of that week:
Little Big Nest.
As soon as I saw the letters on the wall, I thought of Lynnie Pinnie's Taylor font. However, it's only lowercase, and the lowercase "L" looks too much like a one. So instead I used the Plain Jane font from 8 Claws and a Paw. I used the marble khaki material to imitate the stained book pages. Kari requested navy blue for the text and ribbon to coordinate with the bedding.
Circle Monogram Set 3 from Embroidery Arts.
Sew Terific Designs; I customized the design with baby's birthplace, birth date, time, weight and full name.
Lawson was born 13 days ago... and it's not 2010 anymore!!! AAAAHHHH!!! Of all the baby's stats, the YEAR is the one thing I know already. I'm blaming it on the head cold. Lawson is the first 2011 baby I have done a special delivery design for, and I hadn't changed my lettering file. That has now been rectified. Unfortunately it had already been shipped, but thankfully Kari noticed it in a picture before the package was received, sparing an awkward conversation. I stitched a corrected one and got it in the mail ASAP. Amazing how a little number only 5mm tall can cause such a problem! :)
