Button's Christening!

Thanks for the lovely comments on my recent posts - I always appreciate them.


Today was the Christening of my gorgeous little nephew, Button!  This is the present I made to hang in his nursery:




I had a vague idea of what I wanted to do.  I searched and searched online for a pattern, but could find nothing that felt right.  I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted, but I knew I'd know when I found it.  Well, I didn't find it!  But I managed to come up with this myself - and I'm really pleased with it!  I found an alphabet online that I used for the letters and numbers - and I saw the rabbit on something, and copied it onto paper to use in the design - I think I changed one stitch I wasn't happy with.  The rest just evolved as I worked on it!




I love it framed in the embroidery hoop, with a ribbon bow and hanging loop.  I painted the embroidery hoop light blue to tie in with the design.




This is going to be my June Monthly Make!


Another present I bought was this beautiful wooden rattle, engraved with his name and date of birth:




It's such a lovely Christening present (even if I say so myself!) - something special to keep.




It was a lovely day - I'm just chilling out now after the morning service and an afternoon eating buffet food, eating cake, and having a few drinks!
