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!

It works now! I really like the black guitar! It's my favorite.

I tried to put the video on my blog but there are terms and I think I need permission. I don't know how to comment on myspace.
Not even sure if I can figure out how to get a video on my blog. But would like to spread the word about Era Guitars.

I want to learn more about embroidery. How to do it better.

God Bless You and Yours and Your Creative Life!!!

Love the stitching! I just picked up embroidery and I love it. Check my May 28th post on my blog. It's so hard to divide knitting time with other things I like to do!!
I was thinking of joining Planet Fitness too. I need to go up there and check it out.
