So I finally finished some overalls for my nephew, who is 1 mid June. I am happy enough with the applique, but the other night I discovered a different way of appllique-ing (a blanket stitch rather than satin stitch) which may have looked better. Plus, the car looks a little off evan though it was a clip. Oh well.
I used some Michael Miller fabric for the cuffs and even though I was planning to use navy snaps at the legs, I used red all over.
I must get back into selling stuff on ebay. This new computer loads so much faster than my old one. I am aiming to raise enough money to cover registering a business name. With an idea in my head, I have no idea if it will suceed or if it is in God's plan for me but I am going to have a go anyway and come what may.

Jalisa and I went into the show (met up with some of Wayne's family). We had a good look the craft/art entries. the quilts are just amazing. I found out that I recieved a 2nd and a third (maybe two but one of my entries had fallen over so you can't tell). I think some of the entries didn't have enough competition so they were just displayed. Cheryl suggested the judges must be "older" - obviously they like traditional, country (yawn) entries. Oh well
