A Birth Sampler
10th April 2020
Whilst many of us have retreated to needle and thread to help take our minds off the situation unfolding before us on a daily basis, one very special member of the Inspirations family finds herself with needle and thread in hand for an entirely different reason!
We know many of you are currently plying your talent to the projects featured in ‘Willing Hands | The Counted Thread Embroidery of Betsy Morgan’ and while you’re busy counting twice, stitching once and constructing carefully, Betsy finds herself stitching a long-awaited birth sampler.
It was with much excitement and immense pride that Betsy recently announced the birth of her first grandchild, Elijah James.
Eli was born to Betsy’s daughter, Caitie, at 12:11am on 18 March in South Riding, Virginia USA. He came into world the weighing 8lbs 3oz and was 21.5 inches long.
While they’re currently all self-isolating at home, Betsy is enjoying every second she’s getting to spend with him and is so thankful to have this precious time with him. She’s even managing to squeeze in an hour or two of stitching each day while he naps!
Although Eli’s come into the world amidst a time of great uncertainty, we love that Betsy and Caitie have determined to take everything day by day and are relishing the uninterrupted time they’ve been given to spend with him in the all too often fleeting newborn days of a baby’s life.
We couldn’t be happier for you Betsy and can’t wait to see Eli’s birth sampler once it’s complete!
BTW, Betsy’s book Willing Hands is finally back in stock! After selling out of the first print run last year, copies of the second print run have now just arrived.
