Heaven isn't too Far Away.

I got started on Ninja Baby's birth announcement...finally. Okay, so I might have procrastinated a little. I mean heck, he's only 4 months old, right? Heh. The Very-Brady-Baby has one and she's not even here yet. *blush*

Anyhow, here's the start of a long process.

Birth of A Star is Born.

I promised a happy surprise-- I finished Very-Brady-Baby's birth announcement yesterday morning. Without further adieu, here's pictures.

This was done of 14 ct. white aida with "cotton embroidery thread" of unknown origin. It was a Dimension design. I'll post about this one more time when I have a name and birthdate added.

Do you currently subscribe to any stitching publications or have you in the past? (Either in print or online) If so, which ones?

I currently subscribe to and Both sites have beautiful designs, and I cannot say enough about them. I've recently been looking for a print magazine with cute patterns, but haven't found any. Far and few between are the good LNS around here. If any reader has a good suggestion, please let me know.

Tomorrow: a happy surprise.

Star Light, Star Bright

A Star is Born is almost complete. The Very-Brady-Baby's birth announcement should be able to be given to her mom, sans name and date of course, on Sunday.

I'll also have to take pictures of V-B-B's presents from me and my wrapping job (quite creative, I think).

Any who, without further adieu, I present my progress.

Here are some close-ups of Mr. Teddy.

And these odd colored lines? That's the start of the words "a star is born."

I love this design. Feminine without the frou-frou. Perfect for this particular little family.

WIP it good!

I'm adding pictures of two of my WIPs today. The first is my green winged Amazon.

So far I've only got his tail done.

You may also notice part of the branch he's perched on. GW, as he is now known, is a pain but is definitely one of my favorites.

My other WIP is called A Star is Born. This is a birth sampler done for the very Brady baby-to-be. My cousin's wife is due in August.

I hope to have this done for the June 22nd baby shower.
