Boy, oh boy......word got out that I am slowly getting back to work......This jacket is a new customer......on the back of the jacket he is getting some heat press stuff done above and below the logo........then one of my existing peeps brought me 50 beanies and 5 it all done and hope to get to doing something for my website today......Jim & I are both going to get our 1st Shingrex shot this morning.....

These are awesome! I love the print on the maroon jacket. Glad to hear you are starting to feel better. I can't take the Shingrex vaccine because it is a live vaccine. I have lupus and my meds. don't allow me to have live vaccines. I'm sure you have some happy customers.

Wow, I call that "crazy" glad you are feeling better. Now please can I ask you two questions. What is Knockdown and Shingrex is that for the virus??. As an Aussie I have never heard of either.

Knock down stitches are a light fill the same color as the fabric to flatten the knitwear for a better stitching result....there was a whole discussion of this here on cute, but can't remember what category it is under....for The Shringrix vaccine go to and that will explain is 90% effective against shingles.....

"Slowly back to work"...doesn't look that way!!!! You must be well on your way to recovery! I'd still be in bed, but here you are turning out the goods! I'm gald that you are able to do some fantastic embroidery as you heal. Your embroidery lays so flat and displays your abilites that always astounds me. I think you said in a prior post that you do not hoop the jacket. Now, I want to know what you do with the jacket's lining!

basketkase by basketkase 20 Nov 2020

this jacket had a zipout lining....yea!

Yea! Let's hear it for the zippers!

Beautiful work. Did you do knock down stitches on the beanies. I tried it on a couple of beanies and it seemed to take forever!
