I was looking at one of my favorite sites for stitchery on eBay it is called Primitive stitches , they are very cute. On their blog they have a video Library on hand-embroidery stitches. It is a great way to learn how to stitch in a professional way. I really like it, the link is here.

My Ebay Store: BabyCozyCovers Infant/Baby Car Seat Covers

Since September of 2006 I have been running a eBay store called BabyCozyCovers* It has lots of things hand made and other stuff, but I basically make car seat covers for infants. I started with basic fleece covers that can be personalized with the name of the baby.

Desde Septiembre del 2006 tengo una tienda en el internet en eBay llamada BabyCozyCovers* Tiene muchas cosas que son hechas a mano y otras cosas pero basicamente hago covertores para sillitas de bebes para autos. Primero hice los basicos con tela polar que puedn ser personalizados con el nombre del bebe.

Then summer came and I decided to make another version of it using flannel. It works just nice for the summer and keep the babies protected from sun and dust.

Luego al siguiente verano decidi hacer otra version de ellos con franela. Funciona perfecto pues no es muy caliente y proteje a los bebes de sol y de el polvo.

Then last summer Grace was born and just two weeks after we went to Island Park in Idaho then Lee had the idea of making a mosquito net baby cover. It work fantastic!

El verano pasado nacio Grace y solamente dos demanas despues de nacida fuimos a Island Park en Idaho y Lee tubo la idea de hacer un minimosquitero de covertor para la sillita y funciono super bien!

Now after almost two years and many sugestions and feedbacks I come to present the reversible baby cover:

Ahora despues de casi dos anos y muchas sugerencias les presento el covertor reversible hecho de de tela polar y tela de algodon 100%
I love making them I started because I found the need of protecting my own kids and I did not want to fight with normal blankets anymore. I hope you find them as an option for a gift or for your own.

Disfruto mucho al hacerlos porque fue por la necesidad de protejer a Alana que surgio esta idea pues no queria peliarme con las clasicas cobijitas que se caen cada rato. Espero que los encuentren atractivos como para regalar o para uso personal.

Some old stuff... painting with crayons

I want to show some of the things I have done, some time ago I learn how to paint with crayons. I do not know if there is a name for the technique but I like it I try it again and I combine it with stitching.

This is an angel for my friend Connie that collects them.

This is a tree skirt I made with the nativity by Tammy DeYoung.

This is a pillow I made for Alana

A Cutie and and another table runner

Isn't she cute? Lee thinks it is horrible to take pictures of babies mess but I just love it. I think it is part of enjoying life and not be worried about dirty clothes or showering kids more than once a day. I just love Grace enjoying her chocolate chip cookie.

Apoco no es una ternura? Lee piensa que no que es horrible tomar fotos de bebes sucios haciendo cochinadas ja ja ja, yo pienso que es parte de la vida y hay que dejar a los ninos difrutar plenamente de su ninez. Me encanta ver a Grace disfrutar de su galleta con chispas de chocolate.

I finish a gift for my mom, It is a table runner for a circular table I took the idea from the Quilts and More* magazine from Better homes and gardens winter 2007 and the roses from the Australian Country Threads Stitchery edition Vol 8 No 6 I machine quilted myself and I think I am mastering this kind of machine quilting.

Termine un regalo para mi mama, es un camino de mesa para una mesa circular. Me inspre con un pie de arbol que viene en la revista Quilts and More* Invierno 2007 y el bordado de las rosas de la revista Australian Country Threads Vol 8 No. 6. Acolche con mi maquina de cocer y creo que ya estoy mejorando este tipo de acolchado a maquina.
