Hey there, Stitchy Peeps!
So.....I did not get all the ornaments stitched yet. Eeeps! But I have a good excuse. I was busy making these:
Cute, right?? A dear friend is having a baby soon, and when I saw that onesies were on her gift registry, I got busy stitching.
The bunny and the birdies are my favorites:
Three of the four patterns are from Sublime Stitching...Emily Martin of Inside A Black Apple designed these cuties, and I thought they were perfect for the onesies. The piggy is from a small sheet of transfers that I purchased at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft.
So, I beg of you, please do not be mad at me for not having the ornies done. I know I promised you that I would have pictures of completed ornaments, and I will have some soon, I swear.
How about until I have pics of all three, I just show you the one I have finished. Miss Paula, this is for you, darling:
I'm afraid this is nothing to brag about, my friends. My sewing skills are not so hot. Oh well, I still like it.
Here's the front:
And the back:
I learned something while I was putting this together: Hand sewing is far from relaxing when you're tired, stressed, and your youngest refuses to sleep even though it's far past his bedtime. Hmmph! I need to muster up some energy before I sit down and sew the other two ornaments.
I also need to muster up some energy to work on some Christmas gifts for my brother and his wife. Yikes, people! I have a lot to do!! I better wrap up this post and get busy! I will back soon with more stitchy goodness. Until then...
