Here I am again! This time with pics!

I have the pictures! Yay! Now to get them into my page. I even finished the hair pretties, Lisa. Also, I decided that they would look cute on little shoes. What do you think? Is it too much? If anyone sees this, let me know what you think. I haven't permanently attached the "lollipops" to the shoes yet.

The Third Time's Charmed

This is the third time I have tried to post this -- but after all it is nearly 4 AM. I know I should be in bed!

I can't wait to show you the cute outfit I finished for Emma. I bought a really cute though plain little white knit top and appliqued a lollipop (a free design from Lisa's PicklePie Designs Group) on the front. Then I embroidered Emma's name over it in lower case letters. The applique is the same knit fabric as the little short pants I made for her. I put a white knit ruffle around the hem of the pants to make them a bit more feminine. I know Emma's reaction will be "Cute!" when she sees them. We usually like the same things. I know she is going to be a great shopping buddy when she gets a little older.

Lisa also has a Lollipop Hair Prettie that I will try to get done in a day or so. I'll post a picture of it and the Lollipop Outfit here and on Lisa's blog. I made a Star Hair Prettie that Lisa designed and will post a picture of it also. Now I have to get busy and make a cute outfit for Emma to wear for the July 4th Festivities. Any ideas?

Have a great day today! I guess I should get to bed before the sun comes up!

Crayon Rolls are so handy to put in your purse or the kids' bags. With their names on them, there's no fussing over whose crayons they are either. I made these for a friend of my daughter who has two children. She liked them very much. This is the crayon roll nicely rolled and tied with its ribbon! Neat, isn't it? I have decided to get an Etsy account and sell some of the things I make. So far I've given away everything I have made. I need to replenish my supplies!

Another Pickle Pie Design

I put a clip on the back of this rather than a pin. I thought Edward's dad or granddad might like to wear one, too.

I made a birthday badge for Emma's 2nd birthday which is coming up soon. It's really cute!

Some of the gifts for Baby Edward - Baby Bunting Boy Doll, Bib, Pacifier Clip, 3 Monogrammed Appliqued Diaper burp Cloths (only one is shown -- I love the material I found). At the bottom right is the Baby's First Blankie. At the left is the Pacifier Case, Pacifier Wipes Case, and the Baby Wipes Case all digitized by Jennilee at That embroidery machine and those great designers and digitizers make me look good, don't they? Ashley said the gifts were a hit at the shower! I love making these, so if you would like to get in touch with me to make some for you, please do so.

I made these for my daughter to give a friend who is having a baby. These sprinkler covers are to keep mommy dry when changing baby boy! Annie was surprised when she saw these.
This is a little blanket I made for her also. It's made of Minky on one side and is lined with one of the fabrics I used for the sprinkler covers. I love the embroidered "Baby Boy" quilting on the Minky.

This is a crayon roll I made for Emma for Easter. It's a really cute and convenient way to carry her crayons with her. They fit right in Mom's bag or the diaper bag.

The baby boy doll is part of the gift basket prepared for Annie. I made a baby girl doll for Emma when she was having a hard time giving up the pacifier. It became the "Binky Babe". Made in-the-hoop on the absolutely wonderful embroidery machine it is actually the "Baby Bunting Boy Doll" designed by Lisa at PicklePie Designs. Thank you so much, Lisa, for great designs! If anyone is interested in these for your little ones, please let me know. I've made them in Super Minkee, Minkee, and flannel. They are made in the 5 x 7 inch hoop. Measurements differ a bit, depending on the material. Made in flannel, they tend to be smaller, because of less stretch in the material when stuffed.
