One of my very good friends is expecting her first child in a month. As well as a pair of applique fox pillows, I also made her this embroidered hoop to add to a collection that will hang on her baby's nursery. The lyric is from a Guy Clark song that she and her husband always quote to each other. The colors match the baby nursery. My favorite part is the little bee
The border is just a design that I free-handed for this purpose.
And this was the first time I used "made by" labels on something!
I did a loose stitching on the back so that it would be easy to take the needlework off the hoop if she wanted to do something different with it later.
