Oops, I forgot to post last weekend. I finished the one block wonder kaleidoscope quilt top. I might quilt it tomorrow, I'm not sure. I need to do more with triangles- they are so hard. This actually turned out fairly well, but there are a few areas that are puckery. Lack of pre-washing really should take care of it though.
For Halloween, I embroidered shirts for all the nieces and nephews.
Initial shirts for the young-uns.
And a super awesome design for the grade schoolers. (This may be my favorite design ever; it turned out really nicely.)
The other issue with them is the little kids shirts have pockets. I debated removing them, but worried it would leave thread snags in the t-shirts, so I just left them, half under the design. It was nearly IMPOSSIBLE to find black short sleeve t-shirts in September. I wanted t-shirts because Texas is usually warm until Halloween, and gets a cold snap that night, just in time to ruin your costume. I found some specialty websites, but shipping cost like $15, so I ended up with these Old Navy shirts- the little kids cost $2.06 each, the big kids $6 each.
I really hope the kids like them! (Also, if you are into machine applique embroidery, I highly recommend PlanetApplique.com I'm not affiliated, didn't get compensated to say this, but these are their designs, and I just LOVE them.)
