Advice from crafters/cross-stitc
hers and other experts....Help!
Monday, May 25, 2009
My new nephew was born on March 23, 2009. His nursery theme was sports. I found this wonderful Birth Record cross-stitch to make for him. I thought I would make it for his Christening. This is what the finished project should look like:
The Christening is June 28th. I have already put over 100 hours into this project. I have a wedding in June and we will be away from home for five days and then I have company coming to stay at the house. I can not finished this project and have it framed in time. This is how much I have already done:
This is my question:
This is the gift that I have in mind as a Christening gift. I will deliver it in person once I am done and it is framed (my family live out-of-state). How do I let them know that I am making something that special by hand without giving the surprise away? What should I do?
I thought I would go to the Christening with a small baby outfit and write a personal note about the cross-stitch. But...should I include a picture of it..but then is the surprise and appreciation lost? Please help!
