Inspiration :: Christening present

It's niece number 2s Christening tomorrow.

For once I was organised enough to buy train tickets in advance, but I didn't have a dress, present or card. Even worse I thought I had yesterday off work but I din't so had to brave Oxford Street after work yesterday ... While there is lots of lovely stuff in the shops it was really difficult finding a non-Christmas party dress. Anyway I found on in the end in BHS of all places.

But there was one thing I'm didn't end up needing to shop for - the Christening present.

For niece number one I knitted a cardigan, I've got enough knitting in progress at the moment without adding to my list so that was out. So I turned to Pinterest and rather than just randomly browsing I looked through my boards - how often do you actually look through your own boards?

Anyway this is my Pinspiration for the present ...

This is just a selection of the great designs I found. For more images embroidery hoop art visit me on Pinterest.
All links above are to Pinterest as a number of the items pictured are no longer available at their original link.
