My sister recently had her first baby (my kids’ first cousin on my side!) in early December. Cross-stitch is a hobby we both share, and when all my kids were born, she stitched something for each of them. I thought I’d surprise her with this piece. She is a huge lighthouse fanatic, so I thought the beach fit in nicely. Plus, my precious new niece Abbie has lots of beautiful dark hair. What I’ve completed so far on my herculean project is below.
I’ve been working on this since mid-September. I had hoped to have it finished by Abbie’s birthday, December 5, and then Christmas, but it was just too big and, well, I have four children. Enough said.
