For Emma~

A childhood friend of mine just had her first baby at the beginning of this month. I was soooo happy for her, and to celebrate this very special occasion, I made this little pillow for her daughter – Emma!!

Pattern: Plum Street Samplers "Hare’s Easter" Revised
Thread: DMC cotton floss
Fabric: 18ct oatmeal aida by Regency Mills
Stitched Size: 4.25" x 4.25"
Pillow Size: 8” x 12”
Finishing Date: 04-21-2009

When I first see this lovely design from Plum Street Samplers, I knew I had to stitch it!!! Although this design is for Easter, I thought it still would be suitable for this occasion, since Easter is all about life and birth~ So I left off the wording at the bottom and added Emma’s birthday to personalize it.

I actually finished stitching it a while ago, but was busy and didn’t have a chance to finish it until this Tuesday. I’m pretty sure my dear friend is super busy right now and won’t have time to check my blog, so I think it’s safe to show you all first~ I plan to mail it out with other goodies tomorrow so it can be there for Emma’s first month celebration~ I just love how it turned out, and I hope my friend will love it, too~~
