Baby’s First Embroidery

posted Thursday October 6th, 2011

Look what Sophie did — all by herself.

OK, she did have some guidance from her amazing physical therapist, but really, I’m told, she did all the stitching on her own.

“M” for Mommy. (Sorry — Hipstamatic washed out the purple M a bit.) She also did an “S” for Sophie and has plans for “A” (Annabelle) and “D” (Daddy).

One more thing Sophie and I will be able to do together in our old age! (Along with read and get pedicures.) Except that she’s way better than I am. You should see how clean the back of her piece is.

  1. I was going to say, I’ll bet the back of her piece is way neater than mine ever was (or is). Way to go Sophie!

  2. Wonderful job! M deserves every present she can get!

  3. Yeah Sophie!!! Now, you just need to frame it, or stitch it into a small pillow for her (or you).

  4. awesome.
