Something for the festival

I am not quite finished with things for the Strawberry Festival, but I am going to go ahead and post some things that I have done. Some of these items are already in the slide show on the left, but I am going to feature them here anyway.
Some bibs:


Some shirts, which my mother hasn't seen yet so don't tell her!

Some kitchen towels, one is for my cousin and her husband. They host an awesome shindig every year during the festival! The fajitas are sizzling and the margaritas are free-flowing! Can't wait! Cousin, if you are seeing this...act SURPRISED!! :)

Well, I guess that is all for today! Hopefully I'll have more to post tomorrow. I made a couple of strawberry tu-tus last year, but they kept being mistaken for watermelons! They are in the slide show featuring tu-tus. I do have a couple of dresses done, but I think I want to put a monogram on them so I'll wait to post. Have a great day! Until later...


P.S. For those of you who machine embroider, my mom's shirt was 35000 stitches!! That is the most I have done at one time!! With 6 appliques, two colors! On a double knit Tshirt!! Needless to say, I had a time with that one! I think it came out ok, straight even...

Oh my gosh you've been busy!!! Are those bibs oilcloth? They're DARLING. Everything looks amazing! I've never done a shirt before, maybe someday I'll get up the nerve, lol. You rock!

Yes! I love oilcloth, it embroiders much better than vinyl!

I love the bibs! Strawberries do sound good. Perhaps when it's not so wintry feeling I'll go get some.
