This is a cross-stitch I did after I first found out I was pregnant with my son.  After 2 miscarriages and being over 35 he was a true miracle.  Hope you like it!







Hope I did this right...my first time!

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

Where did you get the pattern?  Because I have a print that looks just like it, drawn in pencil.  I've had it since I was a teen (MANY years) and I was surprised to see it again.

Thank you all for your kind words!  It even looks like him!

@ juliana   I actually found it quite therapeutic, if you wanna see patience then I'll have to post my "Garden" scene, it took me over a year to do!

@ sheri    Would you believe I found it in Walmart?  Course now they have stopped carrying cross-stitch in my local store! 

Thank you all again, make a newbie feel welcome!!

I've seen this design in my local Wal-Mart and thought it was beautiful, but it's even more beautiful done up. What a lovely way to honor a child.
