Time to Stitch

Stitching with Betsy

It’s been a long time since my last blog post but a lot has happened! Chris and I welcomed Elizabeth Kenney Battle on October 12th! Betsy, as we call her, is doing well!

I’ve had very little time for stitching–a newborn requires constant attention (major understatement). The other day I found a few minutes to needlepoint while Betsy slept on my lap. Check out her zebra print swaddle; a future fashionista for sure.

I am finishing up a dancing monkey belt by Gayla Elliott. Click here to see the canvas in detail. It comes with a white background though I chose to stitch it in lime green. I’m using diagonal mosaic for the background though it’s a little tedious to compensate around the monkeys, bananas, and palm trees.

The bee pillow on my side is by JP Needlepoint and the other pillow is a custom-painted canvas of the Rose Window at the National Cathedral.

Happy stitching and I hope you are finding time to needlepoint!
