my dear friend meagan got married back in 2011, and this past spring welcomed a new little baby bundle in to their family. when she first announced she was pregnant, she tried to keep the gender a secret, but i was able to finagle a theme of their nursery to go with to make her a little something. they were going with classic winnie the pooh, and considering meagan is a disney addict, nothing could be more perfect. i decided to super go for it, and found this adorable cross stitch pattern on e-bay. it was from a magazine in europe, so the floss brand & colors were different than what we carry here in the US. thanks to google, i found a conversion chart and went on my merry little way converting the colors to what we have here.
one finished cross stitch, signed (not really), sealed (eh), delivered (yes!) and off to be loved.
other than hand cramping, i enjoy cross stitching quite a bit, and hope that i can convince myself to do more of them sooner. or at least finish one of the ones i've had started for quite some time now. it's even on my scrolling frame and everything (i loathe embroidery hoop marks...) seeing a real end result (besides the ones i made aileen) is quite a feat.
wait... you think you see something in that last picture?
something... something that could be quilty?
consider it a hint at what is coming next week ;)
