Free Form Sampler


With the all new organised me i am finding more time to endulge my crafting passion.

I've just finished this birth sampler for a friend's baby. It's based on one i saw in a book and was lots of fun to do. (It looks a bit odd top right as I edited out her full name)
So much so that i'm about to start another! The next one will be for my soon-to-be-born nephew. I'm *so* excited :o) It just doesn't feel the same being an 'auntie' via marriage.

I've also finished my first project from the Built By Wendy book, a skirt. I'm fairly pleased with it but i will make it more A-line next time.

Thanks. I've still a fair bit to perfect but embroidery has beocome my latest obsession!

I love this so much. I wish I could make one. Do you sell them?

Nicki said...

Thanks Vicky. No, i haven't sold any, just given them as new baby/1st birthday gifts so far. Maybe when i run out of people to give them to i'll set up shop so i can continue making them, lol!

As the mother of the extremely lucky child that received this - may I just confirm that this sampler is quite simply gorgeous. It is beautifully crafted with some details thrown in that add a bit of humour. I know that my daughter will treasure this for the rest of her life.
