I have been working on this embroidered baby quilt for the last six months! I could not believe how much embroidery was on it once I started. It looked so simple with the stamped design and consisted of mostly large cross stitch but it took me forever! I started soon after I found out my son and daughter-in-law were expecting and managed to finish it two weeks after my new grandson was born. My excuse for that is that little Lucas arrived three weeks early so I was actually done before he was expected to arrive. Since I finished this, I am totally immersed in small stitching projects which require me to use my glasses and magnifier and are tiny enough to finish in a couple days - sort of a backlash from this endless stamped embroidery!
This is my gorgeous grandson, Lucas. This photo was taken while he was still in hospital. What a sweetie, eh?! He was three weeks old yesterday and Mom and Baby are doing very well. He is a bit tiny because he was early. I am thrilled to be a new Grandma!!
