Maddie's Pillows

I had never embroidered before, but I had the urge to try it recently. I drew some simple flowers, and Ava drew a scene on paper - which I transferred onto fabric.

Before I could start stitching, I had to untangle the gigantic knot that Ava had made with the thread  when she was 2. I had been cutting what I needed from the edges over the years, but this time I figured I would work to separate the colours.

Once the thread was ready, I chose my colours and started stitching....

After several evenings of stitching here and there the pillows were ready to be sewn and stuffed.

Here's my completed pillow...

...and Ava's "Mommy & baby kitty"....

The crib is now ready for whenever Maddie chooses to arrive.

(Everything will be removed from the crib once she's here.)
