The beginning of another addiction
So I have been spending tons of time going to all the blogs on Sew, Mama, Sew's site and have been hopeful about winning something new and exciting. I think it is a great idea to coordinate everyone's giveaways to the same time and encourage people to look at new blogs. But there is the problem, I am looking at everyone's new blogs. Every time I go to a new blog, I am signing up for the giveaway, but then getting lost in the blogs. I have really been enjoying everyone's work and it has been great to see the possibilities. I had a couple of blogs bookmarked before this, that I would visit, but now I have about 20-30 that I have subscribed to.
And all of this has made me want to actually start my own blog. Not really for others, as much as for me. I am thinking that this is a great way to journal my life, something I have always wanted to do, but never had time for; and a great way to make me keep working on my crafts, and not let them linger in the works in progress pile!
So to that end...I give you one of the things I created. I have a whole bunch of items to share, but many are on my camera. I will start with something that is already on my computer:
I made these onsies for my nephew for Christmas. It was my first attempt at embroidery and I really enjoyed it. So far I am sticking wiht the simpler beginner stitches, but hope to get better as I go. Since my nephew is one, he was easily pleased, and his brother thought it was cool that he got Nemo. I used an on-line coloring page for the Nemo one, and a sublime stitch pattern ( I think, will have to check).
