The family sampler - progress

Here some progress. I did the letter R with a bit more stitches. I'm trying to locate the blog where a got the idea. I'll post it when I find it.

A baby is coming...

I'm expecting my son for October 2nd 2012.  I wanted to stitch something that would commemorate his  birth.  I found the pattern in the book : Souvenir d'enfances aux point de croix by Véronique Enginger. It's an amazing book with lots of projects.  This project is stitched on 28 count natural linen.
