So, yes! A new baby is on the way. SHE will be here is February, and I'm very excited to be having a daughter. I fully realize that she could have zero interest in stitching and knitting and all the fine fiber crafts that I've come to love, BUT I feel as though I have a better chance of getting her hooked than I do with my two train, tool, and bug loving little boys. Let me tell, you, though, that I plan to try my hardest with all 3. Needle crafting has so many obvious benefits to a childs growth and attention span. With this little one on the way I have a deep sense of satisfaction that our family is complete!
With all that being said, I DID finish the pattern for Luke's sampler - my Mom graciously stitched and framed, and so now I am very pleased to announce the release of this happy alphabet sampler. I designed for Luke, but with the purpose of making it fairly gender neutral. I've always been a fan of bright colors that work for either a boy or a girl, and chose objects that aren't obviously geared toward either gender either.
Please enjoy! This sample is already available here on my website: Alphabet Birth Announcement
