I’ve finally managed to finish the birth announcement cross stitch I’ve been working on for a friend’s baby. Phew! Relief! About time too – this child could arrive any day now!I was starting to worry that it would end up being like the picture a stitched for some friends of mine’s wedding, which I ended up sending to them after they came back from their honeymoon as I wasn’t finished any sooner than that!
Check it out! All I need to do now is insert the name and date of birth in the sce within the cloud, which I obviously can’t do until I have that information. I’m actually incredibly proud of myself for managing to do all the French knots on the Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. I absolutely hate the things.
I also received word today that the gift I sent for my cousin’s baby girl (born on 5 January) arrived. I sent it over a week ago so was starting to wonder… don’t trust Deutsche Post or Royal Mail as far as I can throw them, and when both are involved anything could happen!
I can already see that this is going to be another baby filled year. Apart from the mammy of the lucky recipient of this cross stitch I currently know 5 other people who are pregnant – and we haven’t even made it out of January yet! I can’t wait to get started on my next new baby cross stitch 🙂 Hopefully I’ll manage to pick one without a million French knots this time…

That’s so lovely! What a great baby gift: it’s so personal and the baby will never grow out of it! You’ve done a terrific job of it!
Thank you! I always wonder whether people will actual like them or just end up shoving them into a box somewhere…
So cute! My hubby loves to do baby quilts to give away. l like that pattern.
There is actualy a quilt of it as well, but I think the baby would be a teenager by the time I finished a whole quilt!
Looks fab Bev! Well done on getting it done in time!
Thank you Anna!
This is wonderful, Bev! Happy new year, by the way! I haven’t been here in so long!
Great work on the cross-stitched birth announcement. You inspire me to pick up cross stitching. Whether or not that will happen, we have yet to see. 🙂
You should, it’s fun! (Apart from the French knots…)
That’s cute! I used to cross-stitch…now I want to start up again.
