I finished the Winnie the Pooh birth sampler a couple of weeks ago, and now I’ve also framed it. I did it in the evening so you can’t see too clearly unfortunately, but here’s the finished piece framed:
I’ve also now had the opportunity to give the gift to my friend, who I’m pleased to say absolutely loved it! This is the first piece of cross stitching (other than greetings cards) I have given to anyone else, and I was a little nervous at how it would be received but she really liked it so it makes all the hard work worthwhile. She asked how long it had taken me and seemed really surprised when I told her, although I know I was really surprised when I started stitching just how long it takes. The father of the baby liked it too, although he did say I was cheating when I told him it was a kit and I hadn’t designed it myself! 🙂
I’ve been working on some Christmas stitching recently, but I won’t post on here as the recipients may see it.
