Made 3 sets of reusable scented Hand Warmers to give with gifts. The designs are from Embroidery Library. I used 100% wool felt for the covers. Filled some with rice and others with navy beans, and scented them with lavender. Heat them in a
Rose Pillow - made this pillow that was given as a birthday gift to compliment new bedding. I was amazed how well the colors matched since I didn't have any of the actual bedding to use as a guide. Photo #4 is the back side. I use the swirly faux fur

First attempt at quilting - this is my first "test" piece, and I turned it into a table top/mat. I've been wanting to try this type of quilting pattern for a long time, but had not had enough scraps or thorough enough instructions to do it. I'
Steamed Loaves - Was finally able to get some All-Bran, to try out Shirley's (saproctor) recipe. However, by the time I got the cereal, all the raisins were gone! So, no fruit this time. Didn't have any regular soup cans either, so I used some larger
My first try to stitch FSL Edging on 100% Linen to make a doily. After admiring lidiad's elegant creations, I wanted to try making my own doily with FSL edging ITH. This is the result, and the design is from Sue Box. (Sorry for the shadow in the photo
