Guess what....... my cell phone can not hold its charge more than like an hour ....go ahead, laugh. It really feels as if every electronic, appliance in my life is taking a break from its responsibilities. Drama, drama, drama with the gadgets in my life. Even my embroidery machine has decided I was overworking it the other day. How, you ask.....
Oh it decided to chew up a blanket I was embroidering for a friend to give as a gift. Horrified, I was!!!!!!! Let me just say that blank blue baby blankets are not easily found in my area. I would know this because I visited every one in the area trying to find a replacement. After realizing that this was not going to happen, I knew that I would have to make her a new one to replace the one that was not so ready to be given. So I came up with this and had a little cooperation from my machine to personalize it as well.
I finally calmed down once I had it completed to understand not all was lost with the chewed up blanket. I was able to take the rest of the blanket and make the following:
A Monkey Lovie, He is a cutie!!!
A Burpcloth, a Bib and a Wrist Rattle
I love this Taggie Bib and the Wrist Rattle. They turned out much better than I could have imagined.
Life threw some lemons at me this past week, looks like it is still hurling some this week. But that is OK.......because I know how to make lemonade!
