A colleague at work has had a beautiful baby girl (aren't they all beautiful) so as I had offered some time before the birth to do a sampler it is time to look at my patterns and design something. The only suggestions of likes from the mother are pink and lemon!
So whilst I puzzle over that I have a picture of a previous sampler to share, picture recently received via the connectability of Facebook.
The lettering around the edge and the balloon strings are my own.
The layout worked out on graph paper.
I have used this basis design twice, this was the first and original. The second was again for a work colleague with changes to the colours of the balloons, lettering and of course a different name and birth details (written on the balloons)
I still like this and still have the graph paper pattern so I do not rule out the possibility of using it again. However, it is not quite right for Kyra and Colin's daughter 's sampler.
