My friend Christine just had a new sweet granddaughter and I will say her daughter did a great job in picking out her name... It's Addison! I have had so much fun making bib & burp cloths for her and I have one more set to do soon. I wish I had my machine back when my little Addison was born. But at least I can do things for her now and for others - I love it!

Our friends Josh & Gnickie are having twin girls and their shower is this upcoming weekend. I was thrilled when I found out her colors - pink, green & white! So I decided to make her two sets of bib & burp cloths by Saturday. :) I have actually made very good progress mostly because the Whimsy dot font is so easy and stitches out so fast! I still have ribbon, ball fringe (little chenille balls) to sew across the bottom of the burp cloths with the Whimsy dot font and fabric to sew across the Curlz applique burp cloths but hopefully I can get it all done by Saturday. I will upload the finished projects soon.
I just posted the finished products including the basket of goodies for Gnickie & Josh. I think they turned out really cute and I am happy to report so did the parents to be. Yeah!

I have taken a little bit of a break recently but have a few things to post... First I did a cute crazy daisy t-shirt for Ansley and I hope to see pictures of her in it... :) My cousin Tonya sent me pictures of her cuties in their name t-shirts - so check out Britt & Grey... Finally I found a new design that Austin actually likes and wanted me to do for him... It was of course a Star Wars design - light sabers. It actually comes as one light saber but I used my Sew What Pro and modified the design into "dueling" light sabers. Addison decided to try on Austin's shirt for him and then he finally got to put his own shirt on... Austin's loves his new t-shirt! Success!! I have finally found something that I can make for him. YEAH!

Lately things have been really busy at work, at home with Austin finishing up 1st grade (only 2 more days left and he will be a 2nd grader!) as well as sewing projects... I have sadly neglected this blog so I am uploading some of my latest projects and actually forgot to take pictures of several things which were really cute. I have more to do but after I post these pictures it's time for me to get to bed! Have a great week!

Madeline loves shoes, but don't we all? We bought these cute long shorts with matching scarf belt a while back, but didn't have a top to match. So, of course, we made one! The shoe applique is made from Addison's Christmas dress leftover fabric. She wanted her picture taken in front of the gigantic dandelion, because she thinks its beautiful!

I made the cutest name applique t-shirts for my cousin's little boys - Grey & Britt. I only have a picture of Britt's t-shirt because I forgot to take one of Grey's before I gave it to him... :) I can do most names and fit them on a t-shirt. Hopefully soon I will be able to to do one for my little Addison. (It would be nice if this image would display straight across but it won't... )

This Wednesday is my little cousin Britt's first birthday so I made him a birthday cupcake shirt with his name on it. I am also posting a picture of Addison's purse dress. I have made several for other little girls but our sweet little girl needed her own purse dress... I am also working on an order for a cute bib and burp cloth set in black with hot pink polka dots for Cambree. I finished the bib last night and it is so cute. I will work on the burp cloth later this week.
Last week we had a craft show at work and it was really fun getting to display some of the items that I had previously made for Addison and other friends/customers. Check out some of the items that I made for the show including some 1st birthday cupcake t-shirts, purse t-shirts and a few new designs including a new double fabric applique (I have circles, ovals, rectangles and squares in sizes 2 inch to 6 inch with four different stitches - vintage, satin, lacey and zig zag), a new simple flower applique, a dragonfly and a double popsicle. Plus I also included two pictures of the setup of my booth. It was really fun! I hope to have more craft fairs and I always appreciate your order.
