Flower Power Chick

I think I could stitch cute little chicks every day for a month and not get tired of them! This is another design from the 1948 Simplicity catalog that Martha shared.

They are so cute and stitch up so quickly and easily, I may have a new favorite pass time. I will have to go to the outlet store this weekend and stock up on some more onesies!

Once again, I couldn't wait for the shirt to dry before I showed off the cutie-wootie-ness!

I used back stitch for most of it, but tried an outline stitch for the flowers. I think if I did it again, I would use back stitch for the whole thing.

I am glad we have babies on the way! I hope they like chicks!

These onesies are so darling -- I have never tried to embroider on knits before, but now I want to try it.

Who doesn't like a cute chick? Wait ... that didn't come out quite right and I really didn't mean it that way! I meant fluffy yellow baby chicks that come from eggs that chickens lay. There.

So cute!

I finally finished my first Mexican themed towel yesterday. Not without some trials tho! ;) Pics soon.

The babies will outgrow the onesies before they are old enough to express an opinion. The chicks make us "oldies" happy and that is what counts now!!Love, WS

I am glad we have babies on the way, too. And I am glad I don't have to get up with them at night!
