It's a Girl.

My sister has just has a beautiful little girl named Grace and to celebrate I thought I would try my hand at embroidering her some personalised little singlets. I quite enjoy embroidery but as you can probably tell from the photo's I'm still quite a novice. I took out some library books on embroidering and the lovely lady at my local library told me about a friend who had just finished an epic piece that had taken about seven years to complete!! These little things took me about 15 mins total, at a guess. The videos by Mary Corbet at Needle n Thread are really useful when you're learning new stitches (like me). I used french knots for the flowers and stem stitch for the G and the stems (how appropriate).
