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
I need suggestions. Two of the young men in our church have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. They are great kids, and I'd like to make them something to commemorate their achievement. Would a boxed type zipper bag be appropriate, or is there somethi

Many days ago, I asked for suggestions for using embroidery on cork fabric. Wow, this fabric feels so good! And it embroiders beautifully! I ended up making angel ornaments and some lip balm holders and still have a lot left to play with. Thanks!
