Finally! A project I have started AND finished!
Our friends have just had their first baby - a gorgeous little girl.
Today I got to have squishy newborn cuddles with her!
I wanted to make her a gift, instead of buying one like I typically do.
I have a special embroidery that was done for me by a lady in our church (our organist, Mrs Brooks, for those who know her!) when I was born. It was up on the wall in my room when I was growing up, and it only came down when I moved out to get married! Somehow it never made it back on to my wall, but I'm determined to rehang it now... Here it is.
Anyway, so I thought I'd like to do a name embroidery for this beautiful girl. I did some Googling for inspiration. Really liked this one and ended up going mostly from this one and this one.
Now that I look at it, it looks very 'homemade' instead of 'handmade.'
I love the bunting, not so keen on the embroidery.
Doesn't matter I suppose, I hope she likes it - and that her Mum's not ashamed to hang it up somewhere!
And here is a sneak peak of the next project I'm working on...
