I did not make a birth sampler for my BFF's son as by that point she too was cross-stitching and her mother-in-law was also a cross stitcher.
I had quilted a pre printed panel baby quilt ( my friend picked and purchased the panel for that) which was a Noah's Arc so I cross-stitched a "nursery" picture instead of a birth sampler to go with it.

The rainbow is one of my BFF's favourite things so it was most appropriate and this a very colourful version.
The red of the Arc picked up the red in edge of the panel quilt.
However, after finishing the hippo's, giraffes and flamingos, I spotted a mistake.
I will give you a moment to look at it, enlarge it even, can you see it?
The pale green section of the arc.
Yup it is a couple of stitches higher on the right than on the left.
