for the birth of my friend missy's second baby, abigail, i made the family a cross-stitch portrait. this customizable cross-stitch project from martha stewart's website was my guide. free printable grid paper may be found here. the project was a lot of fun, especially drawing the pixel family pattern.
this is the real family last spring, minus baby abbey...
and here's abigail rose, born friday, january 20th. i met abby today and she's a sweet lil muffin. best wishes to baby abbey and her family (and happy bday to her marvelous mama, missy!) xoxo
