Necessity is the mother of invention
I really wasn't excited by the idea of stitching something a second time. I wanted a new design that would be a quick stitch but hold my interest--and here it is! A 2-1/2 inch block that will be finished as a 3-D ornament, it's being stitched in contemporary shades of Christmas red and green because no one knows--parents included--what the gender of the baby is.
The center of the top square has been deliberately left blank--depending on when the child arrives, it will either include the first letter of the family's last name or the baby's initials. I've set a deadline of this Saturday to get the stitched piece to my LNS in time for Christmas finishing. The baby was due last Friday, so the race is on to see if the new mother or I deliver a finished product first!
