Embroidered Dirt Bike Sweat Shirt

Good morning.
T.G.I.F. after being away from everything for 2 weeks this have been a busy week.
I'm still not caught up on all commenting, please give me a few days and I will be.

I was moving some stuff the other day and ran across a sweat shirt I forgot I bought to embroidery something on it for Corbin.

He is all into Dirt Bikes this year and he is getting one for Christmas or his birthday in January so that is what I embroidered on the shirt.
All the colors seem to pop except for the purple. He want card he will just be happy to receive it.

Embroidered Stockings for Corbin's Classmates

Good morning my bloggie friends.

Barbi called a while back saying SHE had signed up to make stockings for Corbin's class with the kids names on them. They will be using these for something the whole month of December. Naturally as always she called dear old mom stating she was too busy to get them made.

Did I say that is 19 stockings?

I thought about getting some of the cheaper felt stockings and adhering some glittered letters for the names, but NO I had to go for the plush one and planned to embroidery the names on them. Ordered the stockings, by the time they arrived I was sick and out of commission for 2 weeks. They needed to be mailed Tuesday via UPS at the latest for him to have them on Thursday so he could take them to school on Friday. So guess what I did all day Monday and Tuesday. Was sweating getting them done. Finished them at 3:30 PM Tuesday, took pics, packed them up and off to UPS Sam went at 5:30. Cutting it close I would say.

I think they turned out so cute.

PDE Linky Party:Christmas (Gingerbread Face Mailbox Treat Boxes)

Happy Tuesday All!

It's time for this week challenge over at PDE Linky Party (Christmas)

I made these adorable Mailbox treat boxes for Corbin's classmate for Christmas. I edited the file so the front and back were the same. I did glue to back on and left the front where it could be taken off. I added the frosting look around each. For the girls I added the bow. I decided instead of a tag I would just use the print and cut and added it to the back. I added candy and 2 Kids Christmas Stamps in both the boy and girls. The boy's got 2 match book card and the girls 2 bottle of nail polish.

I think they are adorable what say you?

Silhouette Challenges Ch# 19 "Silhouette Advent Calendar"

Good Morning!

It's time for my posting for Silhouette Challenges. This month is
(Advent Calendar).

Silhouette has this fabulous Frame Advent Calendar. I knew I wanted to purchase this. I can swap out the count down for any holiday. I can also use it to display pictures etc. Since we are approaching Christmas I wanted to do naturally a Christmas theme. I did not use the free files that came with the frame. I used a Samantha Walker file. Each insert card is black on the the back for writing a note etc. You could also add git cards, candy etc behind the cards. I love how it turned out. What say you?

2 Creative Chicks Challenge #20 "Any Sewing Project"

Good Morning Everyone!


It's time for another challenge over at 2 Creative Chicks

This month challenge is "Any Sewing Project"

To kick this challenge off I created these 3 ADORABLE Country Christmas Angels. They measure 10 inches tall and 8 1'2 inches wide. I ordered the wire to make the Halo's but it did not arrive yesterday as scheduled so I could not get them added. I'm not sure if I will add them at all now. The more I look at them the more I like them just as they are.
