Modern Sunbonnet Sue's Musings

Musings from the mind of a modern day Sue:
Birth Announcement Embroidery

I completed an embroidery of Bambi & Thumper, that also announces the information of my newest granddaughter's birth. I purchased the stamped embroidery linen, as a part of a baggie of similar items, at an antique shop last Fall. I paid all of $3.00 for the baggie, which you can read about in my previous blog. I looked it up online and discovered the stamped item was put out in the 1960's, about the same time that the Disney movie hit the big screen. Maybe some of you remember going to the drive-in or theater to see it. My sister does, but it's a vague memory for me. At the time I purchased the embroider, I thought it would be something different to make and give to my daughter, when she gave birth.

I actually finished the embroidery before baby Carly was born. I went home the Thursday night of her birth and planned out the lettering of her name, birthdate and weight, finishing the stitching the following Sunday. I sent it out for professional framing at JoAnn's, with a 50% of coupon and an extra $20 savings coupons. They did a beautiful job. Check it out below. (Sorry about the glare from the camera flash). It was well worth the extra money for the glass, which will keep it protected from sun damage and dust.

It will be a beautiful keepsake for my granddaughter.

Yes I remember Mom taking my brother and me to the movie. She was pregnant with my baby brother.  Love the sampler. Very precious and it is a very beautiful keepsake for your granddaughter. You did a beautiful job on it.
