Some Progress, and a Finish!

I know, it has been a few weeks!  I have not been stitching as much as I would like, but have done another three motifs on Mary Wigham.....

I am happy with how she is coming out, and still on target for finishing her this year.  I am still on the fence over the yellow, but will wait 'til the end to decide to switch it out possibly???? 

Another project I did was for my cousin's new baby, Gianna Rose.  Her Christening was this past Sunday, so I am now able to share it with you.  Since the theme in the baby's bedroom is Winnie-the-Pooh, I found a sweet pattern called Pooh and Piglet's Room online from the UK.  
It seemed very girl-ie to me, lots of pink and purple :D

While the pattern did not call for personalization aside from the name in the pink ribbon, I decided to put the birth date and weight in the dandelion that Pooh and Piglet are blowing into the wind :) 

....and lots of french knots!  Love them! 

I hope the piece brings her lots of joy and smiles!  :D

So now I will be switching back to Rachel Hyde and the neglected Elizabeth Hancock....trying to get to the finish line on that one soon!  

Thanks so much for stopping by! 
Have a wonderful week and Happy Stitching!! xx

Oh, Krista the "Pooh & Piglet" you stitched is adorable! Doesn't everyone just love Pooh...what a great nursery theme!! The birth date and weight personalization is perfect! A very sweet "welcome" gift for baby Gianna.

Nice progress on Mary! I always struggle to find the right yellow. What a sweet, sweet birth sampler. And a neat way to add the date and weight. :)

Anne said...

Mary Wigham is gorgeous and so special. I like the yellow because it's subtle but if you aren't happy with it, it's best to trade it out for another yellow you like :D

Sweet baby sampler too! I love french knots! They are fun to make!!

Bertie said...

MW is lovely, I know what you mean with the yellow, I do change colors a lot too, put your own stamp on it:)
