A friend of mine let me know in November that he had recently found out he was expecting.
He's a youngin' like me, but he's gonna make a grand poppa.

I'm incredibly ecstatic for him, so for Christmas I made his child-to-be a little something.
I think it's adorable. My first free-hand attempt at cross-stitching as well.
My fingers hated me throughout the creation of it, but I believe they have forgiven me due to the loveliness that resulted from their hard work.

Finished!:


In Progress:


Because I found the underside to be so intriguing:


And here it is hidden away inside the book I gutted.
Along with a mini owl, mini stocking, and a letter for the almost poppa.



Oh! And it's been ages since I've posted on craftster, so I'm glad to be back!

Its so adorable, I love it! Am a great zelda fan myself lol.
I believe you made a mistake. It must be his wife or girlfriend who's expecting, and not himself Tongue Or maybe i just got the meaning wrong?

Thank you for the kind words. Smiley
I usually don't see this board much (I'm a bit more of a seamstress), but I believe I have fallen in love with embroidery.


And I had a blast trying something new.
He seemed to really like the gift as well, which was all I had hoped for. Smiley

You are correct! haha he definitely won't be birthing his baby at all, but the situation is rather complicated.
It does sound funny, but whenever I think of it, it's always he's having a baby, so that's why I worded it that way.
Sorry for the confusion! I'm glad you like it though, thank you for taking the time to comment.
