|KATIE AND JOE ON THE BOXING RING HE HAS IN HIS STUDIO NOW|
Hope I copied this video right and you can see a little bit of Joe doing his thing, lol
One more.....this is MUCH MUCH harder to do then you might think, lol.
After we left Joe's we stopped for some frozen yogurt (it was SOO hot!) and then headed back home where we continued our conversations until her parents came to get her around 5.
The rest of the week has found me parked at my sewing machine as always. I have to admit I am STILL on somewhat of a sewing bonanza of baby clothes. I am officially done though (with baby clothes that is) and will FINALLY begin Christmas sewing now. Let me show you this weeks projects....I know your dying to see, lol
On Monday I made these sweater shirts for Sam, Luke, and Claire. I found this fabric at Joannes, and even though it WAS pricey, I used my two 60 percent off coupons, and one 40 percent one too, so it came out really well. I have never really sewn on this kind of fabric before so I was a little apprehensive about it, but it was actually a dream to work with. I was especially concerned about the neckline as I knew it would be kind of thick using it for a neck band and was afraid it wouldn't lay flat, but it really worked out well. It is kind of hard to see it from my pictures, but it literally looks like sweater fabric on one side, and the inside is a soft fleece type feel, so they should be really warm too. I think they are perfect for her annual Christmas card picture, but not sure rather she will or not. Here they are...

|CLOSER LOOK AT THE DESIGN.. IT IS KIND OF HARD SOMETIMES TO MACHINE EMBROIDER ON THIS THIN OF KNIT, BUT I USED TWO PIECES OF STABILIZER, AND A TOP COAT OF WATER SOLUBLE AS WELL. WORKED PRETTY GOOD.....NOT PERFECT, BUT GOOD ENOUGH, LOL|
