Holidays are here!

Wow, I can't believe it's already Thanksgiving next week.  Where did the time go?

I've been busy filling orders and haven't even begun to try testing out my new embroidery software.  I did use a design that was on my new machine to make a bag for my niece a couple of weeks ago.
Here's a picture

I mirrored the design and then copied and flipped it so it made the big swirly design in the background. 

I'm getting ready to offer Miracle Blankets on the site as well.  If you haven't seen them, they are a wonderful gift for a new baby, truly a lifesaver for those times when nothing will calm the crying. I'll also be offering them monogrammed for a small fee.

Most of the items I'm working on right now are custom ordered blankets.  I'm loving all of the different designs.  It sure adds some variety and spices things up a bit.

Getting ready for a festival.

Hopefully I will be getting lots done this week. Last night I made my first tooth fairy pillow. It turned out so cute! I am planning to make a bunch more by this Saturdays fall festival at the park.
I bought another embroidery machine yesterday. It's very nice but its still got different features and controls so its a learning curve. I also bought the professional software so now I have the ability to create my own designs. I'm really excited about that hopefully I will have some time to learn how it works soon.
