Monograms for baby

Soon before moving from Germany I meet the sweetest girl. Now they just moved to the base in El Paso and just had their first child too. Alyssa mailed out the cutest baby announcements that were blue and brown, so I thought I would make my card and gift in the same. She stated they were all good and didn't need a thing, but I think every new mom and baby need a little something to celebrate. I made a stitchery for new little Charlie's room.

That is a darling announcement...and a darling stitchery!! What a fun idea for a baby gift.

And to answer your question about the sailboat, I used a paper piecing pattern, so all the pieces are cut and the edges inked. I'll send you a copy of the pattern if you'd like!!
