Nite Nite Jonah

Fatigue is the best pillow. ~Benjamen Franklin

This pillow is for sweet little Jonah, who lives in Birmingham.  His
room is decorated in primary colors, and we had a blue dish towel at the store,  so I thought this was an easy way to do a quick gift.

   I fiinally bought the Designer Plus version of the Artista software! This is my first project, and I love how easy the lettering was to do.  I am not sure of the font that I used,  I think it may be London, but I just typed in his name and enlarged it.  I changed both the fill stitch  and the underlay to a step stitch, since I enlarged the name a good bit.  Then it was as simple as going to the icons on the left, clicking on the Outline Tool, and choosing a triple straight stitch.  There is a box to check for Outline Holes, and I had to go back and check that because the inside of the O and A did not get the outline on my first attempt.

Jonah's little sister, Julie, gets the next pillow.  I hope to finish it soon!


  1. p.s. Since when is embroidery not sewing? As long as you had your lipstick on, I think it counts.

  2. I am sooo glad you are back! I am going to smear on some Cherries in the Snow and head on over to your Backyard and see what I've missed!
