Here is the finished pillow my friend ordered as an anniversary gift for someone. The scrolling font of this monogram is so pretty. It's a 14 x 14 inch pillow cover with an insert. The insert can be removed for cleaning. I created the piping from some upholstery fabric I picked up to cover my dining room chairs in. Hmmmm, whenever I get to that project, I will have to show the chairs off as well. Like everyone else, I never seem to get to my own decorating though, unless I have a party or company. I had better start planning something soon, so I don't use my dining room fabric up on other items.

Sweet baby Emma will stay pretty in this bib! My sister-in-law ordered this for her new niece. There is little tiny piping around the edge and a polka dot flannel on the other side. I love to make baby items. I wish these cool designs and fabrics were out when my kids were little ones. I did sew for them and hand embroider at that time, but they would have been covered with these darling designs.

I've been working on my ever-growing list of orders, new ideas, and gifts I have planned to give friends and family. Usually, I just get to the paid orders and keep cataloging the new ideas and gift list. However, I have mixed it up this week. I have some orders for personalized bibs, towels, and pillows, so to keep me working hard, I have done some gift items in between. Pictured are a hand towel, set of dish towels, and a cute apron. The apron is made from some darling fabric picturing all 50 states and fun symbols. I wished I could have bought the whole bolt. However, when I went back to get more, everyone else had wanted it as well, so no more. The hand towels, I think, work great as burp cloths - they cover more area and can then be used as a hand towel in the future. Taking orders! Just e-mail me.
