I got these great patterns from Sublime Stitching and I just love them. This set of patterns is called Om Sweet Om. They are the clearest transfers I've ever had. You just barely touch them with the iron and they're on and really nice clear lines to stitch. I didn't realize just how "barely" you needed to touch them until I ironed the Buddha right through the muslin onto my board. hehe Good thing I like him. You can use them over several times. I figure when they finally give out, you can always trace them or at $3.50 a set, order new ones, right?
I'm going to order some more patterns today, I think. Jenny Hart is so awesome and now she has other designers doing some of her patterns. There are lots of cute ones over there.
I think I'm going to make this into a pillow. I can't decide. I couldn't sleep last night just thinking about what I would do with it today. lol
Thanks for all your wonderful comments regarding Nick and his guitars. I'm really proud of him. If he gets the mechanical ability from any earthly place, it's his Daddy and his Grandpa. They have an uncanny problem-solving ability and a seemingly intuitive understanding of geometry and stuff. It's pretty much all "stuff" to me because I can barely measure to make a proper rectangle. LOL
Have a great week everyone. I'm getting ready to go the gym. I'm really loving it. I've been playing on the machines, trying to learn what they each do. Yesterday was bottom half lol and today is top. That's after 25 minutes on the elliptical. I was doing 45 minutes but I figured I could shorten it a bit when I started doing the machine weight stuff. I really like Planet Fitness.
I got the $10.00 a month plan and I feel like I got the deal of the century. Awesome machines, friendly staff, no super-jocks. I feel comfortable in my normalness. :)
Love you guys. mmmmmmmmmmmmmm WAH!
