From humble beginnings
It has been a longgggggggg time since I have pulled diapers from the dryer in my house. A long time. And I sure as shootin' didn't iron them before they graced a precious bottom. As a matter a fact, that last precious bottom just sped out of the driveway on her way to meet a fella and attend the Blue's game. How far we have come. Again I digress. I know its a trend.
Back to this stack of washed, dried and IRONED diapers. I want to be considered "with it" just like everyone else, so I need to learn how to use my embroidery machine. My goal is to make some of those burp cloths that are so popular. I tell you, I can take a skein of floss, a hand needle and make them stand up and bark for dinner; but that embroidery machine makes my hands sweat. Not to be outdone, I will prevail!
With a little help my friends. Barb, one of my stitching sisters, digitized the monogram for me. Bless her heart. I then searched on the interwebz for far too long (I bet you could Google "brain surgery" and find a tutorial) to find dozens of tutorials on burp cloths and a new passion was born.
Here are the results. I know this doesn't look like much; but I could have traced out an embroidery design for a christening gown in the time it took to accomplish this! Now my mind is a whirling with all of the possibilities.
Don't forget the PINK giveaway is open until midnight tonight. Winner to be revealed tomorrow.
