From my sewing room: A Special Gift
There are milestones in my life from a few years ago that I can recall very well; graduation from college, buying a car on my own for the first time, my first "real" job.....
And now the little baby boy that was born to my brother and sister-in-law 22 years ago is a wonderful and handsome young man with a bright future and an adorable fiancé to whom he is engaged to be married to this October.

For their wedding I wanted to give them a special gift, and once I saw they had black towels on their wish list I thought personalizing them with a simple white monogram with their last initial (Y) would be just the thing. (Nuthin' fancy, because they're not into the "fru-fru" stuff. *grin*)
The machine takes over from there....
This is how the design looks on the bath towel;
I just had to resize the design to make it smaller for the hand towels and washcloths.
I also commissioned my friend Dani, who has a wonderful new ETSY shop, to make a special stitchery for their bathroom- done in black work with a black frame.
Thanks, Dani- I know they're going to love it.
Now if I can just convince myself he's all grown up and soon-to-be married...
Time passes so quickly, doesn't it?
Happy Tuesday, everyone!
