Something For A Baby Shower

I began this baby receiving blanket two days ago and finished it in time to give at a baby shower today. It is white 100% cotton flannel with hemstitching done on my machine and two rows of hand crocheted border done in 100% cotton bedspread weight yarn. I used flannel for the cross and Minkee fabric for the lamb. The Minkee is very popular now but I won't use it again for a design as small as this. I only like sewing it with bigger projects like blankets. But I think it's sweet and this was a gender neutral receiving blanket since the parents decided not to find out whether they're having a boy or girl until he or she arrives.

I'm just so glad and thankful to be creating again. :)

Today I took Paige to school and came right back home to clean house. I got a LOT done. I may start doing this on Tuesdays! I didn't completely finish but I did get a lot of cleaning done.

When I went to pick her up after school, we went shopping just a wee bit for some blank Tshirts (of course!) to do designs on and I was just about ready to go home with her when she said she needed to go to the bathroom. I like the bathrooms in Books-A-Million so we went in there. When we were finished, we went to sit on the benchs where the magazine racks are and she looked up at me and said, "Bear Bear", I'm fruster - rated." ha! I asked her why and she said "because I want to see my Mama." Out of the mouths of babes. :)

More Tshirts!

Just call me the Tshirt Lady!! That's all I do lately but I enjoy it and at least I'm in the sewing room. Here is a cute design I downloaded last night that I put on a Tshirt for a little boy. It was tedious because of all the little bitty pieces of fabric to be appliqued but I think it turned out cute.

Here's a close-up.

And here's a design I think I've posted on here before but just on a turtleneck and with the wording gobble gobble. In this particular set of designs, they had three choices of sayings - gobble gobble, happy thanksgiving, or my first thanksgiving - that were already in the design. Or you could just do a turkey or a turkey with an initial on his tummy.

A close-up of gobble gobble.

And here's the shirt I've posted before but I added the trim and wanted to show how cute it looks with the trim. Turkey time is coming!

Now I've got a little pilgrim boy and pilgrim girl I want to put on a shirt, jumper, overalls or something. And some Christmas designs.

Yep, I'll just keep on being the Tshirt Lady!
