What was your inspiration?
Cross stitch Birth record I did for my niece. Her room is decorated in ladybugs, so it was a combo of her birth and her decor that inspired me. :) She's only a year and a half old now. :) I bought one pattern, found two more for free on the internet, tweaked them so they fit together, then put them all together in one pattern, and added some finishing touches. Yes, I painted the frame, too. :)
What are you most proud of?
The finished product. It's fun when you can be creative and find something that makes it all come together.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Start as soon as you know when the baby is coming and what they're decorating the room in! :)
