These are two old photos I scanned to see how that would work out. Both were taken long before I entered the digital age.
The first is a pillow I made in 1990 for the new son of my boss at the time. The baby was born on Halloween, two months early. He spent a fair amount of time in the preemie ward and the parents took this pillow to the hospital. I saw the boy who is now ready for college about a year ago at a party and he brought the pillow with him. I told him he didn't need to carry it everywhere he went. The haunted house design was from an old issue of Cross Quick magazine:
The second picture is a growth chart I made for a baby back in 1994. She was the first of four girls for these parents and I stitched an announcement of some kind for each child, but I have no pictures of the later ones. The design is by Lori Birmingham from an old Treasures in Needlework magazine.
