Happy Valentine's Day!!

Happy Valentine's Day 2010! We went to church this morning, lunch at Zaxby's with friends and I cooked a little din din tonight for the family! Tomorrow is a holiday (my kids haven't been to school since Wednesday) and they all go back to school Wednesday. I'm battling some crud but had a great weekend and here are a few baby gifts I did for some friends... Layette gown, burp cloth and bib with the AC simple train on it. I've been discussing the ribbon sewn on the bottom of burp cloths with an embroidery friend and used Heat N Bond on the ribbon to keep it in place while sewing it on. It made it SO MUCH EASIER!! Why I didn't consider that before, I don't know? This gift was for a baby who's parents weren't sure of the name yet.

Another baby gift - a burp cloth set. I used the Embroidery Boutique sailboat patch minus the sailboat for the initial patch burp cloth and the elephant from Etsy seller thelongthread. Again, used Heat N Bond on the ribbon and it was easy peasy to sew on! I like the sailboat patch b/c it has several stitches going around it so you can tie in different colors!
We've sent 4 new AC designs to be converted to ART so when we get them back, we'll list them!

I got a tip today to share - I haven't tried it yet but plan to this week! It's a stain removal spray called AWESOME from The Dollar Tree! It is in a clear bottle with red Labeling and the spray is yellow. I had mentioned throwing away some of Mallory's stuff b/c it was so stained, so for $1 a pop I'm going to get me some Awesome this week and maybe save some clothes! Thanks for the tip Courtney!!

Hi!! Love your blog and appliques :) Where do you get your layettes? I got some, but found they were too small to get a hoop under and applique. Any suggestions??
Thanks, Melanie

You do great work and I have loved all the applique designs I have purchased from AC. I was wondering what this font is used in the "drew" burp cloth? I have seen this on lots of the things you do and it is super cute!
