This owl is from embroidery-boutique.com. I left off his tummy feathers and added an initial instead, really liked how it turned out.
This is from planet applique....I rotated it straight and left the note paper part off so there was room for the initial. You can buy it from digi stitches already like this but its 6$ on sale and the one I got was only $1.50. :)

Made this Taylor for a friend to give as a gift. It's a Taylor from Children's Corner. It was a fun project. Love that pattern, reminds me of how easy it is to sew for babies! So much quicker than my big girls. Not sure why the picture is blurry...
Made these cute weenie dogs for the girls and my niece. This was really fun and a great way to use small remnant pieces. The indersides of the ears are satin, which is great for my lovie loving girls. I got this pattern from Jennifer Paginelli's book "Girl's World," which I got for my birthday. It is a great book filled with 21 patterns, great directions and beautiful pictures. If you love sewing books, this is a great one.

We went to a birthday party at the skiting rink a few days after Christmas. It was their first time skating. They LOVED it! We stayed an extra hour and Abby wanted to go back the next day! They pretty much stayed on the wall until the very end when Abby ventured to the middle of the rink. She just wanted to go fast, which made me so nervous. It really wore them out, they were zombies the rest of the day.
I am going to have to take them back, but definitely early in the morning. As we were leaving after lunch a bus load of kids were just coming in. That would have been disastrous. :)
