Birth Announcement for a Sweet Girl

Baby Girl finally decided to grace us with her presence, as was shared earlier this month.  George the giraffe quilt was finished well before she was born since we expected her sometime in December.  You just never know when a baby might come . . . so it was ready and waiting for her really early.  We started a birth announcement at the same time, using some of the same fabrics.  Here is the shell that was all ready before Thanksgiving.

Birth Details Added

Once she was here and home and FINE, we could think about a little birth announcement.  Front-facing George was added, and Sue hand embroidered all the sweet details.

Once it was layered and some little tabs quickly sewn, some straight line quilting ensued.  Add a binding and ta-da!  We just happened to be babysitting so we could hang it in her room and take a photo.

We made a wish . . . and you came true!  Truer words were never spoken.  We love you sweet girl, Addison Brooke.  ♥ ♥  As a fun side note, Michelle at From Bolt to Beauty was the most accurate delivery-date guesser!  Nice job Michelle, although I know Andrea wished that one of those December delivery-date guessers had been most accurate.  HAHA!

    This wall hanging is totally adorable. Congratulations!!! I had a little granddaughter on Dec 26, just a few days before Addison was born. My girl, Cameron was 9#2oz and 22 inches long. Both were big girls!

  2. Just adorable! I love this idea and it really is so sweet. I love that it is reflective of her quilt too – so appropriate.

    I always planned to do announcements for my two and it didn’t work out. Gave up before the grands came. Now I just love them to pieces in person. Beautiful job. And congratulations to all.

    Hello Roseanne, That has to be the cutest birth announcement I have ever seen! Sue, your hand embroidery stitches are so beautifully done!! I very seldom attempt letters because mine do not look natural, yours just look so perfect. I wish that we lived close by and I could ask you to teach me your method. Thank you both for sharing all of your talents with us, I know that I always enjoy your projects and especially just the love that comes across so freely! Have a fantastic day!

    Congrats on the safe arrival of Addison Brooke! I hope Mom and bae are both doing well. January 4th is an auspicious birthdate. My daughter and eldest was born on January 4th and we have just celebrated her 35th birthday. How fun for you and Sue to work together so closely on projects. What a lovely combination – the giraffe quilt and birth announcement.
