I am thrilled to have a new man in my life. Meet Mr. Harrison Warren Skinner. He came into this world at a healthy 9lbs 6oz, 22.5″ long! He is as happy and as peaceful as can be. He is an absolute doll. His mother and father are lucky to have such a little sweetheart.
Of course as his “Auntie Kara”, I had to have a little handmade gift for him, but probably much to his mother’s surprise, it wasn’t a handknit. Instead, this time I tried my hand at quilting again.
Here he is enjoying a little time on his new blankie.
I can’t get over how cute the monkey pants are!
Since finishing this quilt, I have taken the scraps of fabric left over from my nursery room wall art project and have cut them into 2.5″ strips to make another quilt for baby Stanley. I am really enjoying this new craft — just don’t look too close, I’m not perfect with the sewing machine quite yet!
Congratulations Aly & Chris on your bundle of JOY!
You are a beautiful little miracle and we are SO happy you are here. We can’t wait to watch you grow into a beautiful boy and handsome young man. We love you so much already.
