Babies Don’t Keep – Finished!

Yay! Finally a big(ish) finish for this year!

Vintage Baby Sampler

Vintage Baby Sampler

The design is Vintage Baby Sampler from issue 225 of World of Cross Stitching magazine. I stitched it with DMC threads on hand-dyed evenweave from Enchanting Lair. I changed the French knots on the carriage and the stitches on the vines to beads. The area for the name needed a little bit of editing so that I could fit the super cute little baby’s very long name into the space. (I’m so glad last names aren’t traditionally placed on baby samplers. It wouldn’t have fit at all!)

I’ve sent the design off with my mom to be frame, and it should make it to baby and mommy before the baby’s first birthday. Yay me for managing to get it done on time!
