Stitching with Betsy

Stitching with Betsy 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! Susan
