Some Stitching

I did some stitching this weekend, but it wasn't in the form of quilts or quilting. I revved up the embroidery machine and got creative.

First up is a banner that I made for a friend for a parade she was going to be in. She has miniature horses that she shows in parades or takes to peoples houses for birthday parties.  I made 2 banners, but just took a picture of one of them.  Anyhow she called and was excited because people could see the lettering from the street which is what she wanted.

Next up are some shirts for a little friend.  She entered 3rd grade this year and asked if I could make her some new shirts.  I'm only a month behind the start of school.  Oh well, better late than never.

Really?  Makes me feel old. 
Class of 2023

I embroidered some names and initials on other things, but I didn't think they warranted a picture.

Have a great day!

Where is the Love?

I'm not feeling it that's for sure.  This project is one of those love it or hate it kind of projects.  I don't hate it, but I don't love it either.  I wanted to finish it by September 15th.  It seems that it's going to live on the UFO shelf for a while.  Oh well.

There isn't enough color change or something.  I think it's actually one color in both faces that is to too dark for me.

If you are wondering who the guys are, it's 2 of the brothers from the band Hanson (Isaac and Taylor).  The 3rd guy, Zac, is still on the design wall and is pretty much only hair.
