Birth Sampler update 23rd November

Well as I was really ill with my endometriosis today I got to do lots of stitching and have now completed one bootie and most of the bow on the second one ! My hope to finish this by the end of next weekend is looking a little more hopeful ! It's taking a little time as it's stitched on 18ct aida.

Birth sampler

Well I started this birth sampler for Harry last weekend and I am almost half done this weekend. I am going to try and get this completed by the end of next weekend ! Maybe I am setting myself a little too big a challenge but I would love to be able to get this framed before my trip home to the UK and meeting Harry for the first time ! Keep me in your thoughts that I can accomplish this, this week ! !

The first picture is what it should look like when completed !
