Since all my Christmas stitching was done pretty early, I've been focusing on the birth announcement for my niece's first baby.
The baby was already born (in fact, she'll be 3 months old tomorrow!) but my niece and her husband didn't pick the pattern out until after she was born. I had given them their choice of about 15 patterns at the baby shower. They didn't let me know until Payton was about two weeks old which pattern they had chosen. This is it! LOL
The middle will have the critical stats - name, date, weight, etc....
It's a fun one to stitch, I like the colors. But there are a LOT of fractional stitches, which can get a little crazy, but it's worth it for the effect. Also SOME blending but not a lot. The grass is two shades of green, and some of the sky is two shades of blue. Also, there are a couple of other areas that are blended...I'm hoping maybe it will be a 6 months birthday present!
(For those who might want to know - it's called "Fairy Tale Baby" by Bobbie G Designs).
Thanks for looking!
