I love embroidery. I love how delicate and pretty the tiny stitches are. I dream about pretty girls clothes, beautiful ornate bags, pristine, sweet smelling pillowcases. This weekend I decided to give it a go, and learnt to stitch bullion roses. These little baby's singlets are my first attempts, and I am very pleased with how they turned out. Each singlet took just one evening to make, so I am now ambitiously planning whole layettes for babies.

These two singlets are now in the mail, on their way to a friend in Florida who delivered her ninth child last week, a dear little girl they have named Ruby. It's just a little gift, but I am sure it will be enjoyed.

I really enjoyed making them. In my close circle of loved ones I have two sisters having babies next January and my best friend expects twin boys in October, so I can see a lot of baby stitching on the horizon. If anyone has any ideas of appropriate designs for little boys I'd be very glad to hear them!

These are so pretty Emma. I keep going on about how I am going to start embroidery but I really must actually do it and stop just admiring others work! Lol. Keep it up you obviously have a knack for it!
