Letters, Embroidery and Emily

I embroidered this onesie last night using a pattern from the book, Sublime Stitching. We carry it at the store but needed a sample to show people what you can do with it. I used iron-on interfacing on the back of the design to stabilize it and it worked great. The interfacing is Fusi Knit (we don't have it at the store because we don't sell knit fabric).I also used variegated embroidery floss and I love it! That stuff is so cool. I'll have the onesie for sale because I have no use for it! I bought it from H&M before Ava was born but it was too small (it's 0-1 month).
The green "E" was done last year when we first sold this velvet paper and we got it in again plus some other colors so I had to do an "A". It's really easy. Maybe I should offer a class... or Mary could since it's a "dirty" project. Here's Emily trying to get away from Jon after he told her he was going to change her diaper. I'm pretty sure this is the first time she has attempted to climb to this level on the cat tree. She knows she's not supposed to but I guess desperate times call for desperate measures! I mean, having your diaper changed is the end of the world, right?

That's pretty high... did she get down by herself?? The onsie is even cuter up close! I love the letters too. Clever girl.

Oh my goodness, Emily is HILARIOUS! I LOVE that lamp you have in the pic with the letters. It's really pretty. Cute onesie, too! I hope you had a nice weekend, and hope the girls are all better. :)

I'm sure if we had a cat tree nicolas would do the same when it comes to diaper changing. He's always in a onsie at home to, I can't get enough of his chunky thighs.
