Thanks for the lovely comments on my recent posts - I always appreciate them.
Today was the Christening of my gorgeous little nephew, Button! This is the present I made to hang in his nursery:
I had a vague idea of what I wanted to do. I searched and searched online for a pattern, but could find nothing that felt right. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted, but I knew I'd know when I found it. Well, I didn't find it! But I managed to come up with this myself - and I'm really pleased with it! I found an alphabet online that I used for the letters and numbers - and I saw the rabbit on something, and copied it onto paper to use in the design - I think I changed one stitch I wasn't happy with. The rest just evolved as I worked on it!
I love it framed in the embroidery hoop, with a ribbon bow and hanging loop. I painted the embroidery hoop light blue to tie in with the design.
This is going to be my June Monthly Make!
Another present I bought was this beautiful wooden rattle, engraved with his name and date of birth:
It's such a lovely Christening present (even if I say so myself!) - something special to keep.
It was a lovely day - I'm just chilling out now after the morning service and an afternoon eating buffet food, eating cake, and having a few drinks!
