Weekend Wrap - 8/9/2010

This weekend I finally finished a set of coasters for our living room (started probably in Feb or March, LOL).  The design is from GG Embroidery Designs.  As will any new embroidery design or InTheHoop design I purchase I like to make something for my family with it first to try it out.  That way I can learn the ins and outs of the design on something that "doesn't" have to be "perfect".  I used a red star from My Embroidery Haven on the blue star fabric I have used for several couch pillows.


 One of my current research projects is starting The Spunky Diva Etsy shop.  In order to have the inventory needed (and to stock up for my next craft fair), I need to make up 12 new burp clothes each month.  Here is the stack that are ready to have embroidery designs added to them.  Two of these are going to a childhood friend back in Washington State that just had a little boy.  I think I am going to use the two designs that have pictures below.  But... nothing is set in stone until the machine starts sewing!


{The thread colors in these pictures just show contrast, the neat thing about embroidery is that you can easily change thread colors to match the fabric you end up using.}


A project that I have brewing in the back of my mind is turning these two shirts into one.  There have been several projects posted on various link parties that have t-shirt remakes.  I love these shirts, but after going through the dryer they are both a little short to cover my growing pregnant belly.  My thought is to take the lavender shirt and add 6" or 8" to the bottom of the chocolate shirt, and do some sort of Reverse Applique design to fancy up the finished shirt.

And to wrap of my weekend wrap - I received the book Captured by Grace in the mail!!!!  I had a hard time putting it down to do the laundry, LOL!
