Crap this may or may not work

 Here is a burp pad I made today to go with the baby shower gift I am working on, don't like how the side seams turned out on the binding so its on to the seam ripper for me :( I should have known not to follow the directions. I have finally figured out how to enlarge letters using the fancy software for my embroidery machine. Only took 2 hours to figure it out then like 10 minutes to stitch it. I so need to get back to the classes!! I used my regular machines fancy stitches to add the side borders, somehow they stitched different, GRRR, technology and I are not getting along today.
 So far a receiving blanket, bid and burp pad or is it burp rag? I have one additional thing I want to include, well maybe two then I will be done. Other than the Minky everything is made from scraps!! Love that!
 Shelf in my closet before
 and after
 Under my sink, no work needed to be done, just wanted to check to see what we might be running low on.
Top of my closet has all the extra OTC drugs along with first aid and such, did a quick check to see if we are in need of anything, no clean up was needed, THANK goodness!!

I have no idea what is going on with my blog tonight, something about blogger is no longer supported, then had to download chrome or some such thing. I have a friend who will be calling tonight to help me figure out what the problem is.
Today was cleaning all day, except for  little sewing time late this afternoon. I would love to have the baby shower gift done by the first of the week but with the boys around for the big game this weekend it might not happen.
Anyone have a suggestion on a different company to use for blogging other than blogger? That's FREE of course!!!


  1. It worked... sorry to hear you are having so much trouble with Blogger. I know there is also Wordpress and

    I love the things you made for the baby. They are so adorable!

  2. Debby, I run Google Chrome as my browers, as I was having problems with Internet Explorer before. The Gifts are lovely ! You are so talented ... Good night for you.

  3. Yes, I use google chrome too, I like it better than Internet Explorer. Wordpress is popular.

  4. love the baby items. What does the "K" stand for?

    I am using blogger still, and haven't switched over to Google Chrome...yet!!


  5. Maybe once I get use to how chrome works I will like it better, I hate change!!! The K on the baby items is for "Kyle" at least I think thats how Mom will be spelling it. Seems like lots of the new babies names have been with a K lately

  6. Those are so cute. I am jealous of anyone who is crafty! How beautiful.
    Love the stock pile!!!

  7. Beautiful gift!! Love it! :) I'd go wordress or which uses the same platform.... If you go to I can help you along too... :)

  8. these are LOVELY...much prettier than mine....maybe they will inspire me higher!!
