After an unfortunate incident involving romantic candles (ahem!), my husband needed a new bathrobe.  This is what I made with an old sheet and a printed pillow panel.




If I were to do it over again, I would hand embroider the words.  I kind of free-handed it with the zigzag on my machine.  A little rough looking.  He likes it though and that makes me happy.

I don't know what's wrong!  I can see the pictures from all of our computers.  Shoot!  Well, it's on my blog too.

VERY nice dog, btw! Is he a Gordon Setter? Cause, he looks just like our dog Gordon (we could not come up with a better name for a Gordon Setter... shame on us...):

It took me a minute to figure out what you were talking about!  That's Buddy that you saw on my blog-he's half blue tick hound and half queensland heeler.  He's a nut!  I couldn't link to your photo (forbidden, it says!), but I did an image search.  Buddy's face looks like a gordon setter, but his body is black and white speckles.

Thanks for the comment on the robe.  Did my pics show?  Does anyone know why I can see the photos and no one else can?  I'm following the directions exactly in the craftster help section.  I don't know what the problem is!

Wow!  Thanks for the nice comments.  Bathrobes make good gifts for men-they don't usually go and buy them for themselves.

I'm really glad the pictures are working.
