I Got My Groove Back!

 
 
I took my embroidery machine in for a check-up on May 8th and just got it back this past Friday on July 10th! 2 months getting a check-up! I tell ya, if I didn't have my regular sewing machine, I'd have gone postal. Apparently it needed a part that was on back-order. I can deal with that. But then the shipping docks in California were on strike, so it could be a while before the part got here, the repair guy said.
 
Long story short, I picked up my machine Friday, only to find out the foot pedal and cable were missing. I was so frustrated! The repair guy never could find them, so he gave me new ones off a different machine...no charge, he said. NO Charge!! I don't think he knew what a hot mama I could be, mid-menopausal and all.
 
So, I got to work on a couple bib orders that had been waiting since May.
I hope these kids still make a mess when eating. At least drool a bit.
 
 
 
This one is for Will...duh. Do I really have to be so specific? :)
 
 
 
And don't forget Grayson!
 I wonder if these kids will ever be friends.
Maybe they'll sit together at lunch in 2nd grade and ask each other if they happened to have a personalized bib when they were babies.
Maybe the bibs will show up for show and tell.  




Yep, they turned out pretty cute. I am finally putting my labels on things.
Gotta give myself credit. I also bought some business cards! Woohoo!
Maybe I'll make the Forbes list someday.
 
 
My hubby is out of town all week and it's stinkin' hot outside, so I think I'll delve into my stash and do some more stitching!

  1. These are absolutely adorable! Do you have a pattern? I'd love to make one for my little one who will be born this November. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you...I think they are adorable too! I made a plastic template from a purchased bib long ago and just trace that as my pattern. Congratulations on your upcoming November blessing!

    1. Ha! I found my groove once I got my machine back from the *spa*! I was going crazy without it and was not a happy camper! I find lots of inspiration looking at blogs, Tonia, where there is tons of creativity.

    1. I know what you mean! My own kids were the messiest eaters and I went through a ton of bibs. Most folks who buy these fancy ones keep them for "special" occasions. The groove is on! :)

  4. Cute, cute! I hope the mother enjoys them. I made some for a friend to give as gifts, and she got a brush off, they weren't from Sax, or Neiman Marcus.
    All that work for naught...L

    1. Oh, I'd be upset with that kind of response too! Any gift that is given with love should be appreciated, especially those that are hand-made! Don't let one sour apple spoil your fun and creativity.

  6. You have such a fun sense of humor Kathy! I was laughing out loud over your threat of becoming a mid-menopausal hot Mama! No Charge indeed. You also had me chuckling over Will and Grayson comparing bib history in second grade. :) Those bibs are adorable - and very well done!
