Last Month's Stitching

I've been working on the same project for the past month or so, a new start for my boss at work, who is currently out on maternity leave after having her third child. The theme of the baby's room is elephants and I found this perfect Dimensions kit - Baby Elephant ABC. The design is so cute and I swapped out the Aida for a cream evenweave. It's been a pretty quick stitch so far. Most of the elephant is complete and I'm getting ready to start the ABCs next. I think I'm going to leave out the stripes in the background from the original design - I don't think they really add anything and it will save me some time.

I love the color palette in this design, especially the turquoise and tan! It has a more modern feel than some other kits. I also love the presorted floss card. I wish Mill Hill would do that for their kits.
