Another Small Finish
Stitch Lines. That's the title of my blog.. You're likely thinking "there hasn't been much stitching shown lately..." and you'd be right! But I'll remedy that today. And I am just finishing up another miniature quilt so you'll see that soon too.
To continue "wrapping up" Christmas 2016, here is a small finish, a cross stitch birth sampler I did for Noah's room. I should have had it done to give to them when they visited in October but it just didn't happen. It now hangs on his wall. :)
I purchased a cross stitch pattern, Snips and Snails by Sue Hillis Designs but just took a few elements from it (the boat and the lettering) and designed my own piece.
Because Laura did his nursery (which you can get a peek at in this post) in blues and teals, I chose similar colours for the waves and the lettering. Then I moved to primary colours for the boats, the reason being that I will be doing
Noah's middle name Osmond is after my father. How I wish he were here to get to know his great grandson. He would be so very proud of this little guy! I never dreamed that Laura would choose her grandfather's name and it warmed my heart and I'll admit, it brought a tear or two. Laura is so much like her grandfather in many ways, but because she was only two when he died, she does not remember him. So this is special.... very special.
