A Southern Thing

I have a lot of clients in and about the southern region of the United States.
And in the south, we like names.
Yes, we like names so much that we want to be called by all of them.
One of our babysitter's for the boys is named Taylor Raye, for example.
One of Eli's good pals from church is John Mark for even more southern proof.

And Jack Watson's mama wanted him to be called just that.

Jack Watson

A client of mine ordered a baby bundle for this mama for a baby shower gift. His nursery colors are blue and black children's toile.

My client chose to off set the toile with a funky yet classic twist on this black and blue color palette.

The black and white stripes jazzes up the toile and the blue and black gingham lends itself to the classical theme of the nusery toile.

Free motion top quilting in wavy swirls just to mix it up a bit.
And for the backing, my client selected a soft minky dot. k.Mac baby blankets come with your choice of a coordinating satin backing as babies love the soft satin feel or you can opt for a coordinating minky dot to add a heavier weight to the blanket. And babies love the raised dot for a change in texture feel. My blankets are sized so that they are roomy enough to completely bundle a wee one up for the 1st year of life. Then the blanket becomes justtherightsize for the security blanket a little one cAnNoT sleep without. Just ask my niece, Mollye.
The nice part about k.Mac's baby bundles is that you can choose how you want to bundle your baby gift. This particular client selected to do a baby blanket with a coordinating burp cloth set.

Other baby bundles combinations can include:

  1. diaper bag with matching changing pad
  2. diaper bag with matching changing pad, mommy wallet, and burp set
  3. burp cloth set and matching appliqued and personalized onsesies (set of 3)
    That's the beauty of purchasing customized and couture baby gifts.
    You can make it exactly what you want it to be.
    Just like Jack Watson.
Completely unique.
An individual.
Set apart from the rest.

Double names may, in fact, be prominent in the south, but giving exactly what you want as a baby gift doesn't have to be thanks to k.Mac!

Hey!
Missed you girl! Figured you were off busy as a bee with business....let's talk cameras.
I have a Canon Rebel XTi--I think they change the ending letters every year. Great camera especially for those of us just learning probably the lens that comes with it will do what ya need to do --after a while you can purchase another lens if you think you need it. i am actually trying to get in the photo biz ---buying a new lens as we speak!!!

I wish I was Southern. But you can call me Stephanie Ann and we'll pretend.

Your work is beautiful!
