I made this blessingway flag for my sister-in-law.  She brought it with her to the hospital where it resided in her room while she labored and delivered my beautiful niece.  I thought that "My courage and patience will send my baby into my arms" was a lovely, simple mantra.





After I had begun stitching, I realized that I should have used three threads to embroider as opposed to six as the words would have turned out clearer.  I'm new at embroidery, so I'm giving myself a little wiggle room on this one- this time, that is.   Wink

I freehand drew the pattern and I would like to tweak it a little for the next time. 


Thanks for taking a look.   Smiley

I feel calm just reading that mantra.  It should be up in every birthing room.  It's a lovely gift.

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