meet my new best friend

My Brother... that's my brother SE-350 Embroidery and Sewing Enthusiast !
I bought it back in December on sale and we've been having fun together ever since!
With these cold rainy days, it's nice to have a friend to play with indoors. The two of us have been crafting up a storm!
First... I sewed the baby bedding and bedskirt, then embroidered some burp cloths, napkins and golf towels. Then I recovered the glider cushions, made pillows and sewed the curtains. And now, just for fun on this snowy rainy day, I made this baby banner:
First... I embroidered the "ahoy" and "it's a BOY" with my brother. Then I cut out the triangles, two for each, sewed them right sides together, turned them right side out, pressed them, and sewed them all to this double fold bias tape with a zig zag stitch. TaDa!
All ready to announce the arrival of Carter Lewis Hamilton!
Kelly and Linc can hang it over their front door when they bring baby C home!

linked up!

just bein' a grandma!


  1. That looks great!!! Can't wait to display it =)
    Hopefully it won't be long now...oxoxoox

  2. Oooo, a new toy! How fun! Love the banner. There must also be a wall in the baby's room it could hang until he's 18! :) xoxo

  3. That is quite the snazzy toy! I have always wanted a sewing machine that embroiders. Of course, it would help if I could also sew first! But, I do love it. Thanks so much for your kind words. I was delighted to get your comment - I "recognized" you right away - and no wonder; a girl from Huntington! Two weeks to go until the baby comes! I can only imagine the joy - can't wait to see the pictures. Thanks again - I love your blog. XOXO

  4. OMG! That is just too precious! I can only imagine how excited you all are and wish you all the best. Actually, I can't wait to see the little bundle!

  5. I am so excited that he's here! I can't believe he came on Kelly's birthday, I was way way off! And what an adorable banner. We are doing Laura's slumber party today but tomorrow I am going to see that baby!

  6. Super cute and congrats to the new parents!!

    Thanks for linking up today,


  7. Adorable! I totally need one of those machines!
