More Gifts for the Babies...

Two ladies at work are due to have babies very soon...just a day apart! Their shower was last Tuesday, and I had to miss it in order to get to Braden's P/T conference across town. Because I am a born procrastinator, I put off these projects until Monday night...getting home late AND forgetting that I had wisely washed the items first, but had unwisely forgotten to get them in the dryer before leaving for work. SO...I didn't even get to start until around ninish because my dryer is SLOW!

I finished aroun 1:30 am...two broken needles, an issue with the bobbin, countless thread breakage, and I honestly sewed in the final stitches just as the bobbin ran out of thread...whew, close call. I was NOT about to start the bobbin winding process at 1:30 in the morning!

They turned out pretty cute, albeit a simple design...but there's nothing simple about pinning and stitching in the wee hours of the morning!
