Merry Monday

A few things making me merry on this Monday...

Working on a new onesie design. This one is for a co-workers new baby girl.

Finishing another "word" hanky.

(I love the way this looks so different, depending on the light.)

Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. I'll soon part ways with this not-so-pretty chicken and rooster set that belonged to my grandma. Their tail feathers are chipped and broken and they've just really seen better days,

soooo...Ill be using these photographs to turn them into a still life painting (or two). I think my grandma would approve :)

And having fresh basil growing on my windowsill. Why didn't I think of this before?

I had a "computer free day" yesterday. Absolutely no computer time at all. None.  It was amazing what I accomplished. Most of these accomplishments were not the fun kind (think laundry, cleaning out old purses and book bags, cleaning the deck, etc), but they are things that make you feel really good when you knock them off of your to-do list. And it's really cool when you find something kind of important and expensive that you thought you had lost- hello, black-framed glasses that I haven't seen in weeks!
Anyway, the fun stuff  from "computer free day" is shown above. The onesie will be available as a custom order item in my Etsy shop, along with a few others that were listed last year. And there will be three "word" hankies listed as well. I think the one above would be perfect for a wedding, as honesty is the "word" and it's embroidered in shades of very pale, variegated blue thread. I kinda like it!

Well, I hope you are having a merry Monday! Until Word Wednesday~ Juli


  1. I've always wanted to do this on jeans, like you do on the onsies... but fear how it will hold up in the wash... any thoughts?

  2. I think it would be fine as long as it's not in an area that gets a lot of wear. And it might take a little longer to complete since the fabric is thicker. You should try it!!
