The Next Birth Announcement Milestone.



I have been the worst blogger ever!  If I've not been busy with end of school year stuff I've been madly stitching to have this done before I head down to the Charleston, S.C. area the last week of July!  I look forward to meeting Zachary. 

As usual I severely underestimate how long something is going to take me to stitch... Especially as this is a Teresa Wentzler!


Just this morning, I finished the border, except for the beads!  Those come last of course!


Today I move onto the center of the design, all just straight backstitching. Well for a TW it is.

Stunning! As I said on FB, I thought you had put quilted cotton round the design it is so heavily stitched.

A real labour of love.
