O FOOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

     I thought I was doing great today. Got up early and got all my chores done. Then I cleaned the house and did some laundry and got DH fed and cleaned up that mess. NOTHING else on my agenda today BUT to sew!
     I started out with this kitty cat. It had a large number of stitches so it took me almost an hour to get that accomplished - AND- then on the last part of the design !!!!!!!!!!GRRRRRRRRRRR! It decided to put the eyeballs up near the ears!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I even tried to pick the stitches out , but they were too tight, so that was a lost cause. I was almost afraid to try that design again because I knew I would have a "hissy - fit" it it happened on a second cat.

Here we are with a completed kitty - with his eyes where they are supposed to be!The picture does not do this kitty Justice

     This was my next challenge. I was looking forward to it , except my needle threader quit working! That was the second main reason I wanted this machine -BECAUSE it had a needle threader! With my eyes giving me a fit every day now - it is so hard to see to hand thread the needle!

     They are turning out right cute and I have toyed with the idea of putting them on Etsy ? I really need some way to supplement our income, and I don't think book markers will do much , considering that it takes about an hour and a half to finish one and then you add in your thread ???  LOL
