Since I showed some Works-in-Progress yesterday, I thought I'd show something finished or some stash today. A search turned up... well, not much so far as 'B' goes until I came across some Babies!
Rooster Baby, by Ellen Maurer-Stroh:
Stitched several years ago, and still not framed yet! These patterns are fairly intricate, at least for their size. Lots of color changes. They used to be free, but they were taken down because of copyright infringement - mostly other sites claiming to be the designers. There were no new ones for over a year, then they popped up for sale on patternsonline.com . You can still buy them there, and I have them all in my stash. I got most as the freebies, and I think there were ten or so new ones that I ended up buying. I have the Bunny baby in progress. I used to say I wanted to stitch them all. They were some of the first projects I found when I started looking at cross stitch on the net.
And 'Spotted Leopards' from the Endangered Young'ins books:
These books are out of print. They are by Gloria and Pat and you can find them on eBay sometimes if you're really, really lucky. Sometimes, you can even get them cheap! I also wanted to stitch all of these babies, mostly for my younger sister who is a passionate animal lover. Her tastes have changed, though, and she's more fond of realistic patterns instead of cute ones. But I do have a little nephew due in May, so we'll see if these get some more love! I have the Brown Bears in progress.
