"The best laid plans of mice and men" ...and women with embroidery machines!

Well, my 52 in 52 isn't coming along as I'd planned.  I keep getting orders for embroidered items and have no time to work on any other crafts!  Not the worst problem to have, mind you.  

But here are a few things I've done in the past 4 weeks.  I have tried some new techniques and embroidering on different types of fabric, etc.

A little "thank you" gift for my very first paying customer: 

The items she first ordered (she's since ordered more, so I guess she liked them!): 

Dishtowel sample - a local shoppe may start carrying them!

I also made my grandson a few Valentine's shirts and a monogrammed cap.

I have more orders this week to work on (4 shamrock shirts & a 1st birthday outfit that includes shirt/tutu/diaper cover/leggings).  Hopefully I'll get around to doing a different type of craft before too long!  

But for now I'm still enjoying playing around with my new toy.
