And it has been a while... I have been busy, though. I am trying to keep up with emails and getting some embroidery done. I have done some in-the-hoop creations and am trying to get up the nerve now to do some lacework. I've worked on some things for one of the teachers at the local elementary school. I made some Easter goodie bags; one with a clear vinyl window and one with an appliqued bunny. I also made a crayon roll for children to easily store and keep up with crayons.
And by the way, I've been trying to upload pictures for this blog. I've had no luck whatsoever I must say! Perseverance, perseverance... I'm trying again this evening. We shall see.
Everytime we turn around, someone we know has had a sweet baby. Isn't it wonderful? I have two little gifts to send off. These are just little somethings that I was practicing making. Baby things and children's clothing are so much fun to work on. I want to make a handkerchief doll for my granddaughter, but haven't found the lace I want to use for hers. I made one for her mother when she was little, but at that time I was able to get beautiful lace that didn't cost 2 arms and a leg. The lace for Molly's doll is pretty, but I want something more for Emma's. So, I'm going to try to make some. I ordered Martha Pullen's CD for Machine Embroidery "Vintage Baby". I'll see how long it takes me to learn to do that well enough to make lace trim for Emma.
