The Drawn Thread - Birth Band

It should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me that I've picked The Drawn Threads Birth Band as Rosalin's birth sampler. I've now finished my first rotation slot on it and while I didn't get as far as I wanted due to a bad attack of the frogs which meant I ended up stitching the cranes twice :( I'm pleased with how it's looking.

Have you seen the new Drawn Thread releases? Flower Boxes is lovely and Toccata no 4 has been on my wishlist since Cynthia first posted it on her website and given the price of the charts I think I'll have to get it soon while the exchange rate is working in my favor LOL

That's a lovely start Karoline!

My favourite of the new releases is definitely Flower Boxes. I think I can live without T4, especially at that price ;)

I love DT’s Birth Band Sampler, and will always recommend it to anyone having a baby who is looking for an elegant baby piece. I’ve stitched it three times myself. I’m sorry you are having problems and have an attack of the frogs – I know it will look lovely when you have finished it.

I haven’t looked at any of the newer Drawn Thread pieces, but I think I’m going to have to have a look at them based on your recommendation.

Great choice for your birth sampler! Even with an attack of the frogs it looks like you've done a wonderful job so far.

Gorgeous! Are they cranes or storks :-)?

Toccata 4 is a must have for me, I already have it ordered.

A beautiful start! Hopefully that will be your last tussle with the frog!

You've made a great start, Karoline, I've got the blender all powered up for those darn frogs.

Beautiful start! I stitched this for my cousins new baby last year and loved every minute of it.

What a lovely start

Hope those frogs have done their worst now and keep away. Apart from them you´ve got off to a great start.

What a lovely start! The kitted-out sampler for my youngest is still sitting in the drawer! Yikes!

Toccata Four nearly made my eyes pop out of my head!! =) Your Birth Band Sampler will be beautiful if that start is any indication!
