Baby is on the way and the “vital statistics” can be recorded for posterity - this cross-stitch design contains a teddy bear on a bright baby afghan of pink and blue squares, draped over a wooden rocking chair.
The information about the new baby is surrounded by a pair of booties, a pacifier, a teether, a flying stork carrying a baby, a set of baby keys, a rattle, a rubber duck, a baby bottle, and a ball - with changes to add a toy train, a doll, and a set of blocks.
There are changes of the color of the blanket the stork is carrying so that the design may be specialized for a boy or girl, or made generic if the sex of the baby to be is unknown. The stitching can be almost ready when the baby is born and the final information can then be added for a timely presentation of this special keepsake.
Materials used for the model: Country French Soft Touch Antique White Aida 14 count by Wichelt Imports, Inc. DMC 6 strand embroidery and rayon floss.
