Sewing machine! All the live long day….well it seemed like it at times but it really wasn’t I suppose.
I didn’t actually sew much yesterday and I’m pushing it aside for the weekend. But I did snap some pictures of what I’ve done so far…..

I didn’t make the blanket but did put his initials on it….it didn’t show up as much as I wanted. I probably should have used a darker blue thread or a variegated blue one that would have looked nice but Kat wanted white and that’s what I did!

Burp cloths

And I’ve used this caterpillar before and it’s probably one of my favorite ones, I think it turns out kinda fun!

You saw the monogrammed burp I did last week……..I have 2 more to do for Kathryn I believe and a couple more to do for a gift.
I guess maybe it doesn’t look like much, but it does take some time to pick all the designs and colors, get everything placed right before I can start the machine. I love doing the little burps, they are fun to work with and choose colors and designs. The hard part is narrowing it down and not making like 47 of them!

    These are adorable. I especially like the caterpillar. The daughter of a friend of mine is going to be giving birth soon. I might just have to sit down and make a few of these for her.

    I just think those are the cutest things. When my boys were babies – did I tell you this – I used cloth diapers (I’m one of those green people even those many years ago) and to make sure I did not confuse the bum diapers with the burp diapers I used my sophisticated zig zag stitch to decorate the burps. It was quite the rage among all my friends. Can you imagine that? Of course we are talking 25 years ago.

    I just love those. Any mama would be thrilled to have such a lovely and personal gift. And they will all be used so well too. Cute as can be!

    If you get a chance, will you give me a list of the Beverly Lewis books that are her ‘Abraham’s Daughters’ series. I am not sure if there are 4 or 5 and I think you have either read or are reading them. I see one in your side bar. No hurry. I have others to read before I get to them.

    Forgot to say that I am up at 2:00 a.m. on my way to the bathroom. I know. Take me as I am. If I know the cactus is blooming I give photographing it a try. I never know till morning whether I have succeeded.

  7. Karen Says:

    The burp clothes are just darling. It’s so nice to have a useful items that are so cute!

    What sweet little gifts! I didn’t buy the embroidery feature for my machine because I didn’t think I would use it. HMMMM…. after seeing your work I might need to rethink that!

    Those are so cute! Until I started reading blogs, I’d never heard of fancy burp cloths like that. We have burp cloths for Goober, but they’re my old cloth diapers — almost 39 year old burp cloths! ;D

    I love those Gail. I absolutely adore personalized things! I can’t sew a button on, so there’s no hope of me ever doing things like that myself. They are really cute.

  11. Stacy (the other one) Says:

    I love the airplane. I wonder why?

  12. annie Says:

    Doesn’t look like much? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? They look wonderful and complicated and professional and cute all at the same time!

  13. Dawn Says:

    Every time you make these burp cloths & share them with us, I think to myself that they are so cute, you could easily make them to sell. You really do adorable work, Gail.

  14. Suzanne Says:

    Very nice…..I love the Name, Sam, one, and the plane……….have fun w/ the kids……

  15. CoachJ Says:

    I think you should make all 47 of them, then you can either give them away on special occasions on your blog, or you could probably sell them as a side business. You don’t have to get too busy! And, that would finance your sewing passion!

  16. Tammy Says:

    You’re so talented!
    And my new nephew born about 8 weeks ago is named Sam! 🙂

  17. Debi Says:

    Oh Gail…they are all soooo precious! You definitely have been working hard, haven’t you? I really like the blanket the way it is…looks so classy and expensive! Absolutely beautiful! All of it!

  18. jen Says:

    I think they look fabulous….I have a friend who has a business doing this….we always order baby gifts from her. Great job.

  19. Mandalyn Says:
