Tyler & A'sharae Birth Samplers

Both of these were stitched in February. Tyler decided to arrive earlier today so I've been finishing them this morning. Both were stitched on 14ct White Aida and stitched with DMC floss. Each sampler took a week to stitch. The chart is  "Lincoln's Baby Sampler" by Maria Diaz which is available from her website or an older issue of Cross Stitch Collection Magazine.

Edited to add these samplers are for my first Great Nephew and Niece. Tyler is Shaun (Nephew) and Beths first baby. A'sharae is Danielle (Niece) and Dorian's first baby.
