So long summer….sniff, sniff

Once again, the summer is gone! Once again I find myself wondering, “How could this have happened?” School starts tomorrow. :(

I did find a few minutes to hit the sewing machine. Here is a project I did for the church. The flags will hang in the nursery hallway so that everyone will know where they are going. I digitized the lamb logo (not original artwork), and stitched all 50,000 stitches. It took an hour for each one to stitch….they are double sided. It was a fun project and I am pretty happy how they turned out:

I’m planning to post this design on my site, so check it out if you are looking for a fun design for children’s items. Don’t look too soon, though….I think it will be a week at best before I can take care of posting!

I hope everyone enjoyed the summer. Don’t forget that my giveaway for WIP busting ends on the 31st! Get those last minute projects finished up and posted!!

    Thanks so much! I have to confess, I haven’t gotten as much done as I wanted to either. I got a TON of house chores done…just nit much sewing! Helped DH start a barn, which is exciting! Has promise for a 2nd story sewing studio! Yea!
