Just a warning if you embroider, you will be addicted to the absolute cuteness of these patterns. Just recently, I've started doing more embroidery and I love it. It's easy to do anywhere versus dragging a sewing machine around, lol. So...there is a new site opening soon called Pimp Stitch. This picture is one of their free patterns. Isn't is too cute!? My plan is finish 2 applique onesies and this pattern as a towel bib this week and send to my sister-in-law for her baby's first birthday party over July 4th.
Pimp Stitch have a few free embroidery patterns on their blog right now you can download via PDF And check out their flickr group for some sneak peeks at upcoming patterns for when they open - the jellyfish and octopus are definitely on my list of must haves.
And on a personal note, I have started swimming laps. I used to be an athlete, skating about 15 hours a week, and I hate how out of shape I've become. So the kids and I joined the YMCA earlier this year. Mr E has found his passion in life, and it's swimming. He has been taking lessons since February and he is amazing. He says as soon as he turns 5, he's trying out for the swim team. Miss Em is just as passionate but so shy, so she is still deciding if she wants to do the swim team or not. So, while they are in lessons, I've been heading over to the lap lanes and swimming laps. I'm just so excited I had to share!
I'm also getting my hair retouched this week. I ordered 2 bottles of Special Effects dye. They are supposed to be the best and longest lasting funky dye colors, so I'm crossing my fingers they last more than 4 weeks - none of the other brands I've tried have. I ordered Atomic Pink -- my typical color...and, I also ordered Blue Mayhem -- it's kinda purply blue. I can't decide if I should do the blue this time. I've been getting a little tired of pink lately. Hmmm...decisions, decisions.
And who watched Camp Rock? I don't know, the Jonai are cute and all, but I just like the music on HSM and HSM2 better. But not my daughter, she loved it. HSM is so not cool anymore apparently. Do you have a daughter who loves the Jonas brothers? Miss Em wants to do a tutorial on how to make your own Jonas brother earrings. After watching Camp Rock, she made her own Joe Jonas domino earrings - her favorite Jonas brother.
