On Thursdays I look back at my store of archives as a way to tell my story and remember where I’ve come from along the way. God is merciful and He is using this way of looking back as a way of reminding me of His blessings and how it is Him that has grown my talent and love of embroidery and not me.
This week we look back at a host of onesies. While the first thing I ever embroidered was a burp cloth, the first products I ever really sold were onesies. I did a whole line of onesies with little animals on the front and silly words on the bum and sold them on etsy, at a local shop and mostly word of mouth through friends. I don’t do onesies anymore, except for the occasional request, but it’s fun to look back and see where I got started with embroidery. This is back from September of 2008.
I’ve got many more to come, but couldn’t resist posting the newest additions to my inventory. These are all new designs and I can’t figure out which one I like best. I’m running out of flickr space so until I have the money to upgrade, I don’t have pictures of the words on the backs…sorry!
Here’s the acorn (it says “little nut” on the bum)
Here’s some pumpkins (it says “my punkin'” on the bum)
Here is the new owl. This one turned out much better than my first owl design. He’s sitting on a branch that is hard to see when it’s folded up. (it says “hoot” on the bum)
And last is mr. frog. I think he’s my favorite so far (he says “hop” on the bum)
In other news, I am going to be a vendor at the Dixie Lee Farmer’s Market on October 4. If you are local, come out and visit and support local farmers, crafters (and me of course). And cross your fingers, say a prayer or whatever that I can actually get everything done in time w/o crashing and going to funny farm instead.
