Birth Sampler for a Friend

Work in progress photos for this project are below:

I’m currently working on a birth sampler for a friend who had a baby girl almost one year ago. If feels like yesterday.

This particular cross stitch kit, by Dimensions, is geared toward a boy or a girl. They provide you with all the material for either. It is a cross stitch that is mixed with a lot of stitches using only one strand of floss verse the usual two. There is some blending of floss between colors, half stitches, back stitching, and french knots. This piece is also different in the way that you actually add a photo of your baby on the cross stitch. I have never done this before so I’ll figure that out when I get there and will help my friend with it. I’m hoping it doesn’t ruin the aida cloth depending on what medium you use to adhere the photo. We shall see and I’ll keep you posted.
