thanks everyone!

the entire piece is stitched in backstitch. i usually try to have more varietyin each piece, but since the lines were so close together, it needed to be simple, and i didn't want to take away from the image itself.

i'm sure i was also inspired by all the mods who have been preggo in the last few years as well! and of course, the fact that taloola is studying to be a midwife - i've already promised her one for her "office" once she's done her practicum!

i think it could have done without the roses as well, but i don't think they look bad, either. i'd just seen the tutorial, and really wanted the excuse to try it, and i wanted to add a bit of dimension and texture to the finished piece, so roses it was. i originally intended to do roses all around the edge, but they turned out bigger than i'd expected!

This is beautiful, all the way around... the stitching, the colors, the composition, and (especially) the subject matter -- perfect.  I love this.

That is so beautiful, both as an idea and in your execution!  What a gorgeous gift that would be for a recent momma.  Thanks for sharing!
