The above was the centerpiece of the collection. I embroidered the baby's name and birthday on the center yo-yo, and made two additional embroidered pieces: one of the state of Alabama, with a heart over Gulf Shores (where they reside), and another with the parents names, birthdays and wedding date "carved" into a tree.
For the other "medallions" as I began calling them, I stitched a cute, woodland fox, the Alabama state flag, and an alphabet sampler.
I mailed them to Coralie for Christmas (two months after the baby had been born, and loved what she did with them. In fact, she is the one who took most of these pictures! Despite me living in Southern California, and her living in Southern Alabama, our blog is marvelously collaborative!

Oh my goodness! I'm loving the hand embroidery! I love that it's so personalized and I love all the prints. So fabulous! Thamks, Leigh.
