Hi, there. I am trying to take a break from the computer for the next few weeks. Before I go, I wanted to show you a couple of things I made for our friends' daughter, Ellen, who turned one this weekend.
I made this little embroidery in two days, a record for me. Though its different sections could have been lined up and straightened more perfectly, I'm ignoring that and choosing to be happy with the finished piece.
I also grabbed this nondescript pink hoodie for $5 at WalMart and made it awesome by doing some freezer paper stencils. A simple E on the front, and an alien scene on the back. S drew the happy alien and three planets, and I used his drawing to make a stencil and paint the image on the sweatshirt. I think it is so cute, our friends loved it, and S felt proud of his contribution. Winners all around.
