craft project number 1 - part 2 - burp cloths

the mommy was here for several days to help me figure out the sewing machine and the remaining work that needed to be done on the burp cloths.  bless her sweet heart, she had bronchitis and just did not feel well, but she worked diligently to get me set up and teach me how to use the machine. 

we had numerous trials with the bobbin thread running out, the needle breaking, the fabric getting jammed, and the stitch skipping.  mom kept her patience and worked with the machine to get everything properly working.  after many hours of effort mommy and i had come up with a dozen uniquely crafted burp cloths. 

some of the stitches are crooked, some have stitches that are skipped, some of the fabric is off center, and we have no idea how they will hold up in the washing machine.  they may not be exactly perfect, but they were hand made with love and i would not trade them for anything.

I've been trying to comment on your blog for AGES! But my computer sends me through this crazy cycle each time and never posts my comments! :( only on your blog. No one else. Crazy! So now I'm trying from my phone. Anywho, I'm so excited for you guys. And you are going to have one stylish and lucky baby coming your way. Love the burp cloths. And love your talent. Can't wait to see more.
