The other evening Lovely S came home from work with a surprise from our friend Rachel, who he works with and who is to be Little H's Godmother. The surprise was this gorgeous quilted blanket which has been made specially for Little H by Rachel and her Mum. Little H's Christening is not for another few weeks but this is an early present and a beautiful one it is too. It had me in floods of tears when I saw it(still very hormonal 3 months on!) especially when I saw the work that had gone into it and the beautiful meaningful fabric that it has been made with. All for our beautiful little boy.
Aren't the little birds on the tree cute? Here's a better image of the complete blanket. The colours go amazingly well in Little H's room as most of these colours are in his dotty curtains. You will also note that the purple bits match the lovely(not!!!) carpet! Hoping we will be able to change this at some point. Not sure he will appreciate purple as he gets a bit older.
Look at the detail. This picture below shows the backing fabric with the front corner folded over. I love all the different words. Beautiful advice for a Godmother to give her Godson.
More of the backing fabric below. So sweet. I hope that Little H will love it as much as we do and will treasure it his whole life.
I'm being a bit of a mean Mummy at the moment and have not allowed him to have a good lay and kick and attempted roll on it as there is currently far too much drool coming out of him. The poor lamb has just started teething and it's a messy business. For now this beautiful blanket lies on the back of the chair in his bedroom and it makes me smile every time I see it.
