I wasn't entirely sure where I should post this. At first, I thought I should put it with other felt projects (as that's what it's made of), but it was the needlework on it that took me so dang long to do, so I'm putting it here!

This is my Christmas present for my soon-to-be-one-year-old niece, Addi. It will eventually be framed, but probably not until right before I send it out in December. (What can I say? I procrastinate.)

Here's the full pic:

A close up of Pooh:

And a close-up of the flowers, for which I used buttons from a recent swap:


The text says, "'Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.' -Christopher Robin" An appropriate quote for little Addi.

Also, the color is a little bit off. It should be a light muave color in the background.

This is so sweet!
I love the quote, I love the Pooh bear, I love the flowers.

Addy's going to treasure this for years to come.  Smiley

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Thanks everyone!  Cheesy I should mention that this is 8X10 inches. It looks like it could be smaller than that in the picture...
