Three sweet girls
With all that sewing on the baby quilt, I completely forgot to show you what I bought from Cathy some weeks ago.
Another brilliant embroidery pattern from her hand - and this time with a very special purpose too.
The pattern is a drawing of Cathy's three beautiful girls Cate, Lily and Eme. The picture was made for the girls' birthday invitations.
When I'm going to make this embroidery, I know that I will have to make the girls look as true to life as possible. I don't know why I feel this way...it's just the way it is.
But since the baby blanket isn't all done yet, I push myself to that one piece of needlework. Starting other projects would only make me forget all about the blanket.
I can't tell you how much I hate it at the moment! A whole lot of the special quilting knots I have tied, somehow tend to untie themselves...so I'm doing them all over.
