Angel Kisses

  • A boy is Truth with dirt on it's face,
  • Beauty with a cut on its finger,
  • Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair,
  • and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket
  • -Unknown
   Now Really.  LOOK AT  THIS FACE!  How precious is this little boy?  I can tell you that he is every bit as precious as he looks in this photograph.

  Tony's Gamma is a dear friend who moved to Texas, but thanks to texts and phones, we get to stay in touch.  She is closer to 2 of her 5 grandchildren this way, and enjoys sewing for them while she can.  Tony loves trains and comes from a football family, so this design was the perfect one for him.

  This design is from Applique Market; Kathy added his name above the football. She used cutaway stabilizer behind the stitching, and  Solvy on top.  I know Kathy uses cutaway whenever she can, and many times she uses two layers.  She comes out with a shirt with NO puckers every time.  Even after they are washed.

   I hope it won't be too awfully long before I get to see this
little freckled face again.  Don't you just want to pinch those little cheeks?
