Christening Picture


I finished the christening picture last night. I need to get a frame and frame it today. For this picture, I just set it in this frame. I haven't decided what size frame to use. Well see. I blocked the baby's name out. The printing is done on ExtravOrganza, which is an organza that has been treated for printing on an ink jet printer. I used Misty Fuse to fuse it to the base. The blues were all pieced. I quilted parts of it with a Sulky silver thread that I have been wanting to use for a long time. All of those products came from my fun visit to Fiber on a Whim yesterday. (I got to go without children for a change.) Anyway, this is to go with a silver plated bunny bank that will have a little cash in it. I hope this gift is appropriate. I am over this whole thing. I have been cleaning like crazy for a week, and I am tired of it. (What do boys do to their bathrooms to make them so gross?)

It's beautiful, Jules, and the shells are so appropriate. Sometimes I've seen the water dipped with a scallop shell. What a sweet family occasion.

Get used to gross bathrooms--it doesn't get any better. Ask me how I know!

Lovely gift!
