This started out as a short post, that turned into a long tangent of a post, and is now back to a short post.
I’ve been real bitchy lately. I blame it on cabin fever. I can’t tell whether it is snowing again or if it is just blowing off the trees. One thing I know for sure is that I’m tired of being cold. Enough said.
I’ve seen so many wonderful crafts in the blogs I follow. Although, I’m not nearly as talented as many of you, I thought I’d share a few of my own creations. When I’m not mass embroidering logos on shirts and hats, I sometimes play around with fun things.
I make these bibs out of chenille fabric, with coordinating fabrics for the backing and the appliqué.
Normally I wouldn’t make so many, but our Country Store booth at our church fall festival was in need of baby items.I thought these little tad poles were kind of cute. Well, I call them tad poles. Any thoughts on what it is. I’m actually not too sure.
I made a few bib/burp cloth sets. Those sold fairly quickly. Quite a few people have asked what I would charge to make one for them. I’ve decided I will only make them for charity or to give as gifts from me. They are rather time consuming and I couldn’t charge enough to recover my time and it isn’t about money anyway. It makes me feel much better to give them away. Our church often collects gifts to give to mothers who choose to keep, rather than abort, their child. These precious souls deserve a pretty little bib.
Not to disappoint – of course I embroidered sheep. Jim would have disowned me if I didn’t!
