Ellie's birthday party was Saturday so I had a lot of fun embroidering a cute little jeans jacket. Before I put the design on the jacket I stitched it out on white twill fabric. I'm thinking that will be made up into a tote bag or maybe a sewing machine cover. Check out the next picture down. I was able to stitch a design on the collar too. Thanks to Dorothy for expert instruction.
Since no jacket is complete without a top and jeans, I embroidered some balloons from the same set on the shirt. The jeans didn't get any special treatment.
I also made Halloween shirts for all the grands. Ellie got the dog pumpkin. Hmmm, I wonder if I should have used a larger design on that one.
Natalie got a kitty cat sitting in front of the moon. Nice thing is these shirts get handed down so Ellie may get them in the future.
Sophie got the cool ghost with the hat in her formerly favorite color, blue. I hear she is now a "red" girl. Good thing I found out before I do the Christmas presents....
The four inner borders for this quilt is the only actual sewing I did this week. This will be a donation quilt to the nursing home we support. I am so ready to get back to my quilting. But darn, I have several more ideas for embroidering. But no more embroidery for a while. I'm ready to actually do some more piecing. I have several quilts to quilt for customers so those will be up next.
I leave you with a pumpkin scene that was in front of a Mexican restaurant. Someone has a good sense of humor.
