snowed in and sewed like crazy

We had a snowy week last week and had an extra day off from work!

Love it when you get a spontaneous day off. I used the long weekend wisely and sewed up a storm. I finally did a real machine embroidery design. Up until now I’ve only done quilt label, I was to chicken to try a real design…but I did and now I can’t stop… I made this banner for the sun room. Makes it look all summery (not) with snow in the back ground….

The Design was Social Butterflies Design Pack_x7341 from Embroidery Library.

I also finished another UFO challenge project. Of course I’m not going in order…this one is for July…why did I do July’s? Who knows, it just felt right… Plus it was fun. Love the panel, I got it at from Artistic Artifacts. Wonderful store.

Lots of sewing, just no pictures

I did remember to take a picture of my mom’s needlepoint she finish. Over Christmas we decided to start a couple new project…(like we needed one) She got a Kaffe Fassett wild flower design. Bright happy colors. Her’s was 16×16 and I turned it into a pillow, we love it.
It looks wonderful in the sun room on the green sofa.
