I've been taking advantage of our nice weather these last few weeks and done a bit of planting. We just have a small garden and some flowers so not a whole lot of maintenance. Our summers are normally so hot that it takes everything I have in me to get outside and water when we have triple digits. I praying for a mild summer this year since we've had a nice spring.
On the stitching front, I'm still plugging away on Houses of Hawk Run Hollow. I'm nearly finished with Block #8 and plan to start something new after that. I have a few new samplers that are SCREAMING loudly at me. :) I will share pictures of what I decide to start. I'm still trying to make up my mind.
I bought a new "baby" last week! I've been wanting this machine for quite some time and finally bit the bullet. It's a Viking Diamond Deluxe sewing/embroidery machine. She's so purdy! I named her Helga. There is a lot to learn, but so far I've found it to be very user friendly. Here a few pictures of what I've made so far with it. SO FUN!
This is a floppy hat that I monogrammed for my niece. These are so popular right now. I've already had quite a few people order them after seeing hers. I'll be busy!! :)
This is Carter Joe's beach towel. I had a blast making this one, but I have to admit that the letters took quite a while to stitch out. Love it and I hope he does, too!
This would be Kayla Ann's beach towel. :)
Here is a sweet pillowcase for Princess Kayla. The one I have started for Carter is baseball.
Thank you all for your sweet comments and emails. I appreciate them all so much. I had to put on the robot thing on my comments because I've been getting TONS of spam. I'm going to take it off and see what happens. I may have to put it back on. I know it's a pain, and I'm sorry. :(
Have a great "rest of the weekend" and a wonderful week ahead.
