Wild Things


This morning's blog entry is a photo of a recent finish. "Wild Things" is a birth sampler for the baby of a co-worker. The baby has just had his first birthday, so it was high time that the sampler was finished.

This piece was not a fun stitch! The chart is part of a Dimension Kit, but I used 32 count fabric and my own DMC instead of the supplies provided. I also eliminated the "bubbles" that go all the way around the piece. The backstitching was a real killer! But it is finished at last!

I will get it framed this weekend, so that Adrian can hang it in his room.

After a long hiatus [my children are 27, 29 and 32], I have begun stitching juvenille charts again for my grandchildren [Liam, 2 and Piper, newborn]. I have to say they are not my favorite type of stitching.

Your Wild Things is very cute and I am sure the family that receives it will appreciate it.

Very nice finish!

I have a birth sampler in progress for a soon-to-be 2 year old. I need to get cracking on it, since I'll have another one I need to stitch soon :)
