A while back I mentioned a pattern that I admired in Just CrossStitch magazine that I asked hubby to stitch for me.
It is a lovely red transferware teapot that is the first in a six part series. The designer of this elegant pattern is Donna Giampa.
After completing an adorable “baby's first lock of hair” keepsake piece for my daughter, hubby has begun work on my transferware teapot pattern choice.
I can see already that this will be one of my favorites - it will be gorgeous. Then I’ll have the challenge of choosing the right frame and mat, a task my hubby always assigns to me. A fair trade off, don’t you think?
And just in case you wanted to see the piece he did for our new granddaughter, I’ve shown a section of it above. It is quite cute with the garland held by two birds (you can see where it has a little space in the center for the lock of hair) and the bunny wielding a pair of scissors. It also includes her name and birth date. Now all we need is the lock of hair. ☺
