Is it Sunday afternoon and hubby is relaxing and I am quilting my second Christmas runner. Well actually, I am taking a break. If I sit at the sewing machine too long I begin to feel it in my back, so I am trying to be careful. The last thing I need is another sore or non-function body part...sigh. Let me show you what I have finished up in the last few days, and then I will tell you about yesterday.
First, I decided it was time to try and embroider something on a tiny little onesie for one of my two newest grandbabies. I researched this quite a bit, as obviously they are really small to work with and come with their own unique set of problems. I decided to go for Luke first, so I made one for him and a matching one for his big brother Sam. They came out really cute. I had intended to take a pic of the little onesie on the machine so you could see how tiny it was to work with, but I could never figure out how to do it without taking one of my hands off of the shirt. I had to hold it carefully the whole time so that nothing got caught where it shouldn't have been. I pinned, and clipped and carefully worked it. I think when I am finally done learning how to do all of this, I could teach a tutorial that would be really helpful, haha. Anyway, here they are...

I am also putting a super soft piece of iron on interfacing over the design so that there is a soft comfy feel next to their skin. Just a little tidbit for anyone who is interested. I also finished up the Christmas runner with binding. I made a few mistakes. I did a

Well, guess maybe I will head back to the sewing machine for just a little while and then get dinner together. Hope you all had a good week-end. Praying God's best blessings for you all! Debbie
