Haven't joined in for a little while... but after having an internet chat with Fiona at bubz rugz, we were discussing making things for Grandchildren. I don't have any yet but I will hope that I am still able to make crafty goodies for them when they do arrive!
My mum made cross stitch birth samplers for all 13 grandchildren. My boys' had an animal theme as animal have always been my passion, my brothers children all got cross stitch pictures by Bessie Pease Gutmann, and my sister's children got samplers with a 'toy' theme. Mum only had to make 3 for my boys but my brother and sister were a little more prolific with 5 a piece.
They are just beautiful works and ours hang in our lounge room as they are too special to put away.
They also help DH remember the birth dates of the boys, details he never seems to remember.
(Sorry about the photo quality but they are so hard to photograph through the glass.)
Have a lovely tuesday...
