Birth Announcements - Counted Cross Stitch
(and a few No Count Cross Stitch)

List of Counted Cross Stitch Patterns & Kits I Found on the Internet August 2002*
(so my niece and her husband could choose one
for me to make for the birth of her new daughter)

*

I searched for both counted cross stitch birth announcement and counted cross stitch birth announcement.  This is not a list of all of the birth announcements that are on the Internet.   It's only a list of those that appealed to me from those that I found.

Note:

  • ++ indicates pattern I really like for a girl.
  • There are a few duplicates.
  • List is in no particular order.

Cute Cross Stitch Design for a Little Girl

The following is not a birth announcement, but I want to keep a record of the web page in case my grand-niece would like this design done for her some time in the future.  It's such a cute bear design for a little girl.
