A Lovely Morning by the Fire

I am embroidering the label to put on the quilt for my son.  I decided to embroider a Bird this time, instead of a Rose.

(from my embroidery book)

And I am working on my little Boy Daygown.  I am sewing the cuffs in place and using one strand of blue embroidery floss with an 11 Sharps needle.

I don't want the stitches too small because I want them to show.  But I am trying to get them pretty even….not that anyone but me would even notice!!

My prayer for this baby as I stitch:  May this child grow in wisdom and grace that he might be a blessing to all who know him.

"Be all of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brethren, be tenderhearted, be courteous." 1 Peter 3:8

The running stitch adds just the right amount of embroidery to a boy's day gown. Absolutely lovely with the Swiss embroidery.
