OH HAPPY DANCE!

Sepia tones - Baby - by Maria Diaz (Cross Stitch Collection #144)
Stitched on white lugana, 28 ct using recommended DMC
Now I just wait until baby arrives (early April) to personalize it before sending if off.

So I finished this late on Sunday evening but I've had a house full of sick kids (DH is included in that) and no time to post. I even ended up going home early from work yesterday as DH was not coping well being sick with one sick kid and one wired healthy kid. Now we are just knocking on wood that Caleb and Mommy have avoided this all together!
So now I get to do a new start! My fairie godmother by Barbara Baatz has been kitted and ready to go since last summer and last night I put the first 100 or so stitches in only to realize that one large block was off by a couple stitches, so tonight I get to counter stitch some first. But I can say that this piece is for me and me alone...and I am enjoying it totally!
Stay warm and put some stitches in something!
Until next time...

Please keep this pattern. I would like to stitch it for the next (goodness knows when) new baby in our family. Thanks

Oh my gosh! That is stunning! I can't believe how good that looks!

Unfortunately, as I sit here contemplating adding the pattern to my stash, I can already see my husband start to panic. lol

Hi Rebecca, Thanks for popping over to my blog....the wedding pic I had converted into a chart by Elite-Designs (just google them). They are a UK company but will do orders from outside UK. I can highly recommend them :)
