Carter’s 3 month photos

I am busy finishing up a couple new patterns for fall market.  I really had fun quilting this one, as I tried the little circle detail in the veins of my feathers for the first time.  It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be!

I just love these fabrics and have been saving them for something that will really show them off.  I will share more soon.  .   .   .

Speaking of fabric, I just want to thank everyone for all the fabric suggestions from my last post.  Obviously, you are all better hunters than I am!  I now have lots of good choices for the bed skirt, not to mention the new fabric sources that I now have bookmarked!

In addition to finishing up some quilts, I have been spending lots of time photographing Carter.  He’s now about 3 1/2 months, so it’s time I got some 3 month photos posted!









We couldn’t get him to smile for the family shot.  We were taking family photos with my entire family and it just plain wore him out!  Better luck with the smiles next month . . .

He has already changed so much since last month.  He still hates tummy time and has started to get scared of people.  He lets it be known with lots of loud crying.   But, he still loves to smile, kick, and talk.  He also loves to stand, put everything in his mouth, hold onto his toys by himself, and get up too early (and hang out with Dad).  He has also started to giggle, though I feel a little jipped that Daddy is getting all the giggles.  I guess I need to grow some better whiskers for tickling (which is how Daddy gets his giggles) or come up with some new tricks!

    Love the detail in the feather and the new pattern. I might not be as easy for me. The pictures of the main man are always tops! Did you think of a name for the pattern?

    Oh my goodness Heather — he is sooo cute ! He had that round daddy face doesn’t he. I think moms get less giggles early on — but those babies always know who to turn to when they need a rock… Thanks for sharing your lovely pictures.

    Love the Nautical Notes. I also knit and quilt, so i totally get it. The challenges are amazing! Please keep posting knitting, quilting, and Carter. I also enjoy family photos with your hubby and Daisy.

    He is adorable and I love your quilts. I am just making my first big quilt and like the more modern bright colors like you use.
    A hint for tummy time, put a baby proof mirror on the floor so he has someone to play with. For my grand daughter we used her car seat mirror. She enjoyed tummy time a little bit more!
