Still kickin’

Yep – we are still alive, believe it or not. We are slowly getting over all our illnesses, and hopefully we won’t manage to catch something else before school is out. I never showed you a few of the things that I had been working on when I was crazy busy. So here are a few pictures for you.

Cute Nap Mat in the best fabric ever! Hmmmm…and can I just tell you that there are some new great things coming from Michael Miller Fabrics. Yep, super excited about them!

Fun burp cloths with Alexander Henry Fabric. More of this is on the way to me…so you can be watching my store for it.

My Flower Power bag found a loving home. It’s sad to say that this fabric is no longer in print, so no duplicates to come! Robert Kaufman has Another Iota though, and it’s lots of fun too 🙂

What is that you say, you want more? Alrighty then! Hooded Towels – I have made so many of them recently. I think this might be one of my favorites.

It’s made with the Silly Safari fabric. Everyone who gets these hooded towels just LOVES them. Often times, the gift recipient becomes a gift giver and they tell me ‘This is the best gift – I have to get one for my friend.’ That makes me smile!

And then there is the embroidery machine. I’ve been contacted by several people to do “little” projects. Whew – sometimes these little projects take much more effort than I had imagined. I was contacted by a sweet lady in Colorado about doing a nursery wall hanging, and I’m trying to get a design laid out – but just haven’t found the time to finish it and present the idea to her. Has it come to a point where I have to actually turn someone down? Yikes – I don’t know. Needless to say, I will not be opening an official embroidery store just yet. But most of my “customers” are friends and are happy not to have to pay big bucks to get a name onto something!

Like this patch for a softball bag.

There is even more. I’m getting together a box to send to a friend whose husband was recently deployed to Afghanistan. (as long as it’s taking me, he’ll probably be home by the time I finish everything!) And my chalk cloth arrived, so I’m working on some fun things for Christmas Craft Fairs (yep – Christmas already!) And the list just goes on and on. So while I have been silent on this front – as you can see, things have not been silent around here!

I’ve also been tagged on both of my blogs – and I WILL get to that – but I like to put some thought into those things before I reveal too much 🙂

Have a great week!

    I didn’t even feel guilty about it! But I promise not to make it my norm 🙂
