My friend Patty welcomed her first grandchild into the world last year. She asked me to look for a baby birth announcement chart with scottie dogs in it, as the baby's room's theme included these cute little doggies. She'd stitched birth announcements for her sons and wanted to continue the tradition for her grandchildren. I did a search and came up with nothing, so I asked her if she'd like me to put one together for her. I found a scottie dog freebie on the blog, Cross Stitch Addict and a pretty flower from a Sam Hawkins book. Using PC Stitch, I combined these with my own border and lettering, and here it is!
This project helped me to learn more about the intricacies of PC Stitch. There's a lot to learn. I had to consult Sheila a couple of times. Another piece of advice for those using PC Stitch: Save your work - often! I'm also inspired to try my hand at more designs. I know that I included other peoples' designs (totally legally) for the creation of this chart, but now I'd like to design one that is all mine. I'll add this to my list of things to do!
