I have wanted to make my two daughters something that they can hang on to, and haven't managed to do it until this year. I made them each a set of pillowcases, and I used the same design, only with different colors. One daughter is a redhead, and her c
Bags made to hold Epsom salts or sea salts. The hardest part for me was trimming the stabilizer behind the organza. I love the cork topper to the bag, and it snaps and ties for security. Easy addition to my gift closet.
A just-because gift for my mom for tomorrow. She is 86, and a three-year cancer survivor. I've learned not to take any day for granted. Design from Tattered Stitches. My picky machine loves her designs. This hasn't been pressed yet, but I was too e
My nephew and his wife are expecting a baby. I've always tried to make something for each niece or nephew for their babies, and for this baby I have chosen this set of designs. I'm not all the way finished with the set, but I think these will go perfe
Isn't this a pretty design? I had fun stitching it today. One of the colors I used is Brother's peacock blue. I haven't lint-rolled the thread pieces off yet (and boy they sure are showing up, aren't they?)

I made this today out of two old placemats that my sister had given me. It's supposed to be made out of non-fraying fabric or vinyl, but I think I like the vintage, raggedy look of these. The design came from titania's creations.
Finished my banner for church (made possible with dragonflyer's help). The original banner just said Emmanuel, and I was asked to add more to it. My applique didn't line up, but I think it still works. I don't know why my lettering puckered a bit; i
I haven't pressed or blocked or mounted this yet for framing, but I'm so happy with this design from Omas Place. My machine had been driving me crazy with shredding threads but this sewed out with no broken threads or with me wanting to either scream o
a while back, I had posted the idea that I was going to use a panel of a lace bowl for a "modesty panel" for a shirt. Well, here's the model! The colors somehow don't show up as well as in real life, but the panel is the perfect size. A huge thank
