What’s next? Baby things!

Well… apart from needing to put in a bit of effort into getting this journal looking a little better, I am also going to finish the project I had been working on before the mad rush to get the 2 biscornu patterns ready on time for the Territory Crafts cross-stitch class.

The project that was put on the back burned was the Baby Checkered Alphabet. I am in love with this simple alphabet that allows me to easily and quickly stitch baby things. As a model I am working on a gift for a friend who had a baby a few months ago. Its a bib with her daughters name on it. The flash is making the colours look a little faded… but you should be able to get an idea of what it looks like.

It’s so much fun selecting colours to stitch the letters. All these bright colours which I wouldn’t normally use together in any of the “grown up” patterns are perfect for baby things. My own baby girl keeps reaching over wanting to have a play with the brightly coloured letters!

I have a few more ideas for baby patterns which makes me wonder if I should re-organise my DMC threads into adult and baby colours? *wink*
