Baby Stitches...

My friend is having another baby! When I met her, she already had a daughter, so I missed the first baby shower. Also, because it was probably in France. (Do the French have baby showers?)

While I was searching for my next embroidery project, I found this adorable farm set and thought it would be perfect for a baby. Like heirloom-ie.

Pattern and instructions by Charlotte Lyons.
For awhile I thought I was in over my head. But there's nothing like procrastination to keep you on schedule.
There's something endearing about hand stitched black lines that aren't perfect...
All the animals...
Rooster!
Bunny!
And here is the fun part...My friend is waiting to be surprised abut the gender of her baby. The pattern comes with instructions to make the kids boys or girls. Since she has a daughter, I made a little girl for the bigger kid and then stitched the smaller kid as a girl with the bottom half of the hair removable! She just needs a pair of scissors or a seam ripper and the bottom half comes out.
Here's the whole set. They don't really stand up on their own, but they do if you put a tube of lipstick or concealer behind them...

This is absolutely adorable and I'm sure will be treasured. This must have taken you a while to finish with all the stitch work that goes into it.
