This birth announcement was started back in December when I heard about a new baby on the way, my friend Tim's and his wife, Emma's first baby. I wanted to get a head start so I could finish it not too long after the birth. I did most of the stitching of the little deer and the grass last year. Worked on it a little bit here and there, in between other projects.
Tim told me the name they had picked out, so I stitched that in, and after seeing that it was a little plain, I added the butterflies.
We gave it to Tim yesterday at the gym where my husband and I play senior volleyball three times a week, and he was so excited to receive it. He gave me and my husband a big hug, which was very nice.
