Summer has arrived at last in the Pacific Northwest! It is so beautiful--clear, sunny, high 80's! I am out at our family's time share condo on Hood Canal; here is a picture out our front window:

However, I'm still working away on my baby gift; we travel to Denver at the end of the week, and it needs to be finished by then.
Here is the project so far:
I added a snippet of cast on stitch--for flower petals, as several others have done; this stitch works well for petals. Small green bead in the middle of each with a butterfly button:
I also added a button cluster on top of a piece of lace trim, as well as the rick-rack trim to cover the outside seam:
As the embellishing gets closer to being finished, I'm liking the project more than I did at the begining!
