First Birth Sampler Has Framed.

Hi, finally I framed one of Birth (Baby) Sampler for friend's baby!
It's baby boy, so I bought blueish frame (for quilt, no glass) and very light baby blue mat, then framed!


This is a surprise gift, so I can't show the name of him and birth date, though I stitched them one over one, and they are very beautiful IRL.
I also added gold star charm on it!
I was thinking to add little bear charm, though the linen colour (raw) is darker than I thought, so I choose this star instead of it.
I thought about this frame a bit darker than I though for the Birth (baby) Sampler, but when the baby blue mat was putted in at the craft shop, it became lovely!


It's a bit shame that the thread colour of "Bless" didn't stand out well even after framed...
I should have changed the colour, now I think...


I hope my friend will be happy to receive this!
I should make 5 more same samplers, though!! whew!
I don't like one over one, so there are blank area on all the samplers where I should stitch their name and birth date... lol

My SIL asked me to change some threads colour, so I so undo some area...
I hope everyone would be glad to receive these gifts! :D


Take care and have a lovely weekend!
Thank you always for your visit!

It's beautiful, Yuko! I think the "Bless" stands out just fine! I can't believe you have the patience to stitch this so many times -- I would go crazy! lol!

What a lovely birth sampler, Yuko! The colors and the framing are just perfect - I know it will be a much loved gift. I can't believe how many times you've stitched this - one time per design is usually my limit.

I love this birth sampler, Yuko! You've done a wonderful job and I too am not a fan of 1 over 1. :) The end result is always lovely though.

VALIE said...

I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.

Rachel said...

Beautiful! Your baby sampler is lovely with the frame/mat!

LOL I'm not a fan of 1x1 either so I can completely understand why you have left those bits for last!!

I'm sure the families who receive these gifts will love them.

Can't wait to see what you do next ;)

Oh Yuko
It's absolutely beautiful and I can imagine finishing this has inspired you to carry on with the others. I love the frame and the word Bless is so pretty and the lighter colour gives a delicate look to it. I love the little star. Someone is going to feel like a star when they receive this.
