NEW RELEASE Sampler!!!!

The great Kate wait was so full of excitement and I watched the news all weekend on the computer predicting she would be induced on Monday considering the dates and her return to London. I didn't miss it. I was up until midnight but sleepily went off to bed, to awaken and find out, yup, she is in the hospital and I was almost finished with the model of a new sampler.

Just recently hearing that the baby is a boy, I will be working on a larger commemerative sampler design in some beautiful blues. I will work on this as I can as I want it to be a wonderful sampler in honor of a moment in history you can pass down to your children by needle and thread.
This sampler also can be useful for ANY pregnancy memory and month and year can be substituted to fit your special bundle of joy!
So, have a spot of tea and smile with me!
Suggestions for finishing include framing and putting a dark green ribbon (similar to the DMC colors in the design) loosely with a bow and through the scrolling of the frame.
When the sex of the baby is announced the mother can change the ribbon (or you) to pink or blue after finding out the gender whether during the pregnancy or at the birth. I think this is a fun  way to commemorate any baby's birth. 
Alternatively this sampler design can be made into a pincushion with a special old fabbie to back it and a couple of diaper pins and buttons to accessorize.
This frame I used was in my stash and bought at half prince at Hobby Lobby.
I stitched the model 2 over 2 on 32 ct Belfast linen Baby Lotion. It's a gorgeous extremely light pink. I'm not sure if this color is available any longer but simple white linen would be a great alternative.
The DMC colors will be included with your emailed pattern.
If you stitch this up, shoot me an email pic and I will put it on the blog and Facebook page. :)
