Hi all. I have been mostly lurking and giving flowers. But I have been busy doing some sewing. Here are a few of my projects. First pic is of flags I made for myself and daughter and daughter in law. Next 2 are front and back of table topper for my sister. I actually made 2 of those. Last 2 are book pillows for granddaughter's end of the year teacher gifts. Hugs. Nan

These brought back a wonderful memory of mine.

The "just one more chapter" pillow made me think of the mother of one of my 5th grade students. She caught me in the hall to tell me that she saw her daughter laying on her bed reading a book for the first time in her life! We are all teachers and never really know just what will inspire a child to read.

My step son was telling me that his wife was distressed that the kids didn't want to read. I told him that if you want a child to read you have to give them something they want to read. I sent him the book "The Day My Butt Fell Off." His wife wasn't pleased with the title, but all the kids read it. It really is a very funny book

MrsKiki--I have been like you, giving flowers and lurking seeing everyone's projects just unable to spend the time to give comments--trying a few before I get fussed at for being online too long. These are great projects and all look so fine. If I don't get to other people to comment just know I am looking.

Love all esp the book pillows. Teachers will love those. O' and I would say you have been doing more than lurking and giving flowers from all these. ;-)

Love the colors in your Easter banners and the total design of the black, white and red book pillow. You've been a busy girl.

All of your projects are beautiful. I have often wanted to make a flag but wasn’t sure about what fabrics to use because of weather. Will yours have shelter? Love your pillows too. All your work is nice. What size is your hoop?

These flags are table top size for indoors. They are done in 200x200mm (8x8") hoop. I bought the original flag designs from Embroidery Garden and Bunnycup Embroidery and change the inside design to suit the holiday or season.
