And ladies and gentlemen it is hot off the presses. I just finished it and it is due to be given tomorrow. Nothing like sweating bullets and getting hand cramps trying to finish in time. It is not only a complex piece to stitch with the stitches in a non-traditional pattern; there is so much of it, 25 PIECES!!!!
I made one for myself many years ago and it became my first “I swear I won’t make another” or as like to call them “limited editions” because of how much of a pain in the butt it was.
……but I guess it is true what they say, never say never…………… She has been eyeballing my limited edition piece for as long as I can remember and dropping her not so subtle hints about trying to make one herself or just receiving one of her very own.
Last year sweatshop worker mom and I made her this cake. Look so good you could almost eat it.
As a special treat for her birthday this year I decided to make her a baby carriage of her very own.
Book: Best of Dick Martin -- Fun For Everyone
Pattern: Baby Carriage
Level Of Difficulty: Hard
Time: About a month on and off because trying to hide it from Kim
I hope she loves it. If not, I know someone who needs a shower gift to give…..lol (sorry inside joke)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIM!
