Sticking to It

If I had cleaned the bathrooms and kitchen, vacuumed and mopped the kids would have just gotten it all dirty by morning. So I will just wait until Saturday morning to do my house work. That's my story and I am sticking to it. David's family won't be here until closer til noon anyway. I scrap piece of flannel piggie print turned into an appliqued M.
More scraps appliqued into a penguin.
An "I spy" charm turned into a cute appliqued heart.
And one more appliqued cat heart.
The appliques sure stitch out faster than a large design. I will have to keep that in mind when I need a gift in a hurry. David told me to find a source for towels online so I can buy them by the case. I am guessing he has plans for me to make some for his office.
My embroidery machine hit 1 million stitches today. I can't find any information about how often it should go in for a tune up but I am guessing I should take it in soon. David has warned me this is the only one I am getting so I had better take care of it.


  1. My mom made a dress for my eldest daughter from the cat print inside the two hearts. It's long since been put away, but I'm going to have to pull it out again very soon for my youngest daughter. I can't believe how long that fabric has actually been in print, because I just saw it very recently at Joann's.

  2. Love the penguin towel! These are great!

  3. Haha the penguin is so cute-looking!
