I’ve had so much fun this week using my embroidery machine! I mean I’ve only had it about 2.5 years and this is really the first time I’ve ever used it to applique and that’s the reason I bought it! I guess now that Collin is older I’m feeling like I’ve got more time to do it now. Here are some pictures of what I’ve done. I’m learning as I go and making things for practice/experience. I had to email a friend of mine to ask her what I was doing wrong on one of the shirts and she helped me a ton!

I’m working on more tonight for an upcoming baby shower for a little boy and redoing a shirt for Hailey (remember the whole practice part!) LOL!

I don't know if you can tell what is in this picture. You might have to click on it to make it bigger. I walked down the hall and looked into the boys' room. I was shocked to say the least! Above Jack's bed was this mural.

He drew it with crayon. I didn't think I needed to worry about my 6 year old drawing on the walls anymore! It's of the Polar Express complete with elves. And I don't have the heart to make him scrub it off.
