I was rooting around in my closet and found a few finished embroidery projects!  A couple of years ago, I got in a big way of buying baby dresses at thrift stores and re-decorating them. I call this one my ABC dress, because whoever made it, ( it's hand-made), used ABC material for the trim. It's cute.

I added the flowers at the yoke, and the butterfly on the skirt. It's done in satin stitch, chain stitch, and outline stitch.

Full shot: ( ignore my dirty floor.)

I'll have to pick them back up...there are always baby girls needing pretty dresses in this world!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
