Sewing, sewing & more sewing ...

Since my heart surgery back in April, I have been sewing up a storm, teaching sewing lessons, started exercising at our church's fitness center, & preparing for hubby's retirement on 8/15. Here are some of the preemie burial gowns that I have done for The Mid-South Threads of Love chapter. I have 3 more gowns started & will post photos of them when they are done. A friend of mine crochets the blankets & bonnets for the burial sets. Then one day while I was folding laundry, I saw this worn hand towel & thought it could use a pick me up so I added this design which is built into my Ellisimo sewing machine. It gave the towel a new look. Who said that you only have to embroider new towels? I also cut out 4 diaper shirts for a cousin's new grandbaby but I need to finish them & am working on pillowcase dresses for children in Africa. I have 10 dresses ready to add the bias tape straps & 5 dresses cut out to sew. With the hot weather that we are having, it makes sense to stay inside my air conditioned home & sew.
Happy Stitching!
