B is for...

A very quick post this time and it's not about quilting (Sorry! But, it's so worth it! promise). If you're are following my blog you know that one week ago I was more than 40 weeks pregnant waiting anxiously for my baby boy... and making a lot of English paper piecing hexagons (check my grandmother flower's garden made with mini charm packs)!

Well, I've the news!!! The biggest one ever... 
He is here (born on April 26 at (9:34pm)!

One day before he was born I finished this very simple embroidery using chain stitch. BTW, have you notice how embroidering and quilting are going together lately?) For now, look for chain stitch at the web. You'll be overwhelmed by the great tutorials.

I came out with this letter style based on a metal letter frame sold by the store Restauration Hardware Baby&Child. I just drew it freely on a paper. Then I placed the paper under the fabric and drew the letter on the fabric with a pencil. It was so easy to embroidery it with no marks at the end.

If you're are wondering, yes, B is for baby, but mostly for Benicio.

(Hopefully I'm gonna update this post with a picture of him, wearing the shirt. Thanks for being along, and thank you for all the warm messages in my earlier post...)



I've linked up my post on Finished up Friday by Amanda at Crazy Mom Quilts.

Aww congratulations! I hope you are recovering well too? My oldest was 16 months when I gave birth to my second and it was tough going for a while - I hope you plenty of love and support around you :0)
