Welcome Ilhan Joshua

This piece got me beaming from ear to ear. I cannot take all the credit though :(

This was a team effort namely, my sis for stitching the birth sampler for her godson's little brother, and my BIL for picking that fabulous fabric that suited the piece to a tee. And me for finishing it superbly (there I go tooting my own horn again :p)

Without further ado...

Designed by Joan Elliot from her book 'Sentiments and Sayings'
Stitched on 14ct aida with DMC threads

Comment Notes: Thank you to all you good people that have dropped by, and some that have left comments. You cannot begin to know how much I appreciate them as I know we all live very busy lives. Time is a gift that you've given me, and for that I thank thee all.
