Fall is coming, just Look

I have been busy this week.  I did get all the squares done for Lola's jacket, but did not get further on this project when I decided to take off on something else.

Little play clothes for the grands became the focus this week.  I picked up my embroidery machine last weekend and had to see if it was working correctly.

Lola's is a pattern from Embroidery Library of the Paisley Pets.  I did not want to make Halloween themed outfits like last year so I thought this would serve the purpose.  Lola has seen the cat but not the whole set.  I was a little hesitant that it might not be as bright as she would ususally want but her comment was " I Like the Kitty" so I knew that it was going to be fine.

I have not gotten the pants made for Julian yet.  I tried to convince him that the Paisley gekko was going to be for him.  Ted(his dad) tried to help me out but Julian kept saying that he wanted a cat.  Finally Angela said that a dog would be great!  So here it is, another pattern from Emb. Lib. of the patchwork animals.
I had Nora Ruth yesterday and she seemed disappointed that she did not have anything on the table.  I showed Becky(her Mom) my new patterns.  Becky chose the Retro Owl.  While Nora was napping, I worked very quickly to get hers embroidered so that she would be suprised.  Her comment when I showed it to her was, I like the cat better.  I did not win. I haven't completed her pants either but the owl finshed up beautifully.
I did get one outfit complete for sale, it will be listed on the Etsy site when I get better pictures.  I call it the 'funky monkeys' and they are patchwork similar to the dog.
Seems the machine is working well.  I have a couple of things to get out for friends this week so I will have another busy week.  I have a fall romper to get made for a birthday present and an outfit similar to these  above for a friend that works in the office with me.
On to the next projects.  Have a great week.
