Long Overdue Post

I know I have been MIA on my blog and I apologize. I have been very busy in another venue and my poor cards have been somewhat neglected for awhile. Now, I will qualify that by saying that we put together 30 Christmas cards to send to our church missionaries, and I've got almost 20 of my own Christmas cards done, but other than that I've been in my other craft room.....my sewing room. Here are two of the outfits I've made for my sweet grandbabies. The robot outfit was for my grandson's 1st birthday, and the Christmas dress is for one of my granddaughters. I still have another one to make just like that. I was blessed with the acquisition of an embroidery machine back in July. It was a used machine, but new to me and I've been loving sewing again. I've made lots more dressed and outfits than these but thought I'd offer an explanation of where I've been. Sadly our Copic Creations challenges came to an end due to a very full plate on our leader Mary. She hated to quit the challenges but time is not allowing her to keep up the extensive work involved in putting all of the challenges together. I loved being on the team, as did all of our team members, but alas it's time to move on. I'm sure I'll get back to my cards soon but I'm still on a honeymoon with my machine and decided I best be sewing for the kids while they're still young enough to wear the cute stuff. I'll try to share more items if there seems to be some interest in seeing them. Thanks so very much for stopping by and for your patience with my long absence.

Oh, Karen, these are both just darling! So precious and special and of course you get the greatest pleasure from doing this for your grandbabies. I didn't know the Copic challenges had ended. You always did such beautiful coloring. Since we got LuLu on the 7th I haven't done much in the way of stamping and I'm glad I no longer have committments in that regard. I'm just now picking up the pace again. I know you'll stamp when you feel like it and I'll be here to admire your awesome coloring when it happens.
