Finally, I Finished It!!!
My dear friend, Kristi, had a little girl almost 2 years ago. I made my traditional baby gift for her - an ABC book (I will blog about that later). However, I wanted to do something else for her. Kristi and her husband, Doug, are living in Baton Rouge, LA, while Doug is working on his PhD. Kristi and I share a love for many things, including Alabama football!!! My heart has just gone out to Kristi as she is having to live in LSU territory. I found a smocking pattern that had elephants holding footballs and crimson banners and knew I had to make this for her little one (and mine!!). I wanted to have it done last year for Miss Eden's first birthday, but that did not happen. I am proud to say that this year when Kristi came to Horizons I was able to give it to her. This was my first picture smocking attempt, and I was pretty proud of the way it turned out. Now, I have to start on Laura Beth's so it is ready for football season.
