Baby W's Sampler WIP Progress #2

I did a bit more of the sampler as I'm really enjoying it. I did a bit of the blanket. It is all colour changes so much slower going now...Big Grin

I can't wait for baby to be born so I can find out date, time, weight and of course the baby's name Big GrinBig GrinBig Grin hurry up Baby Whinfield!!!

Baby W's Sampler WIP Progress #1

on one of Emma's beautiful fabrics...this is for Baby Whinfield (not sure yet if it is a girl or a boy...)
No news just yet and I think he or she was due today but you know how reluctant a baby can be to enter the world - especially in all this cold!!!

So I chose a design from a back issue of CSC (I don't know which issue mind) which has a teddy holding a blanket and the words 'new baby' written in baby blocks. I have selected parts of the image (because it is lots of little images together to make the sampler up) and decided to stitch them to make it's completion a bit faster.

I've been off work today due to my god knows what I'm suffering from...(virus maybe?!) so I have done a lot Wink

I hope you like my progress so to do a bit more before bed!!!


Big GrinBig GrinBig GrinMum's apron is finished...(I have decided!) lots of nice comments from people on WOCS and here so I have decided that if I did anymore to it, it'd look cluttered. So Yay!!!

Right now I am working on a birth sampler for the arrival of Baby Whinfield...who is due any day soon. I don't know whether it is going to be a girl or a boy so have chosen a design from a back issue of CSC which could do for either
Big Grin...

That's it really. Intend to spend most of today stitching as I am trying to recover from a virus
Frown, it sucks!!! Nobody (doctor wise) can tell me what I am suffering from so have shoved me on some anti-biotics JUST IN CASE!!! GRR!!! Frown get on with some stitching of some sort!!!

Mum's Apron...fourth set of photos :0)

Possibly the last set of photos of this project as I feel I am finished with it. Now it just needs to be washed and ironed and wrapped for Christmas Smile ...

I'm not sure whether it needs a bit more doing to it?! I feel that the gap above and below MUM and the cupcakes maybe should be filled?! Or is that going a bit overboard?! Roll Eyes See photos below:

--- The slight Christmassy element to my design as it IS for a Christmas present!!!
--- Ignore the slight purple lines around some of the designs, they will disappear...honest!!! :0/...

Now moving onto the last two xmas cards I have to do and a baby sampler Smile it's non-stop as per usual Smile

I hope you like it and if you think I should add a bit more top and bottom of the design please say - because I can't make up my mind ?! Roll Eyes

Mum's Apron...

Mum told me she wanted an apron for xmas - for when she is doing Sunday dinner/baking. So an apron she is getting!!! ;0)...I found one on that has an aida band running through it.

The design I am stitching on there is of a bear saying 'Too Much Of A Good Thing Is...Delicious' and with some cupcakes near by. My Mum loves her food & is always commenting 'too much of a good thing y'know!' so it is perfect.

Although might need to find some more designs to stitch on it as it is quite a long aida band :0/...

Here's how I have got on after 1 evening of stitching (about 2 or 3 hours)

I shall keep you updated as and when I do some more!!!
Off for a bath now...;0)...
