Don't buy anything...

A friend of mine had a baby last October and I asked her whether she needed anything so I could buy a useful present. She immediately answered that she needed nothing but if I could stitch something for her baby, that would be the best present she could have.
There are so many people who don't really appreciate handmade things that I was happy to hear that!
Of course, I answered. Do you have something in mind ? No, she replied. Anything will do , as long as you do it.
Well... I did it.
The baby is a baby girl and so I picked up a pinkish linen, silk threads, a piece of fabric, skirtex, batting and a chart from CMonMonde.There are cross-stitches over one, Rhodes stitches, colonial knots, and tent stiches over one.

She can hang it in her room, on a closet door or wherever she likes.
She was too young to say anything but she smiled all day today, so I guess she likes it...

Here's the back with one of my favourite Japanese fabric.


Do you like it too?
Until later,
