What I'm working on now

Well, Summer is just around the corner so I thought I better get cracking on a new summer quilt for my little boy. I found this pattern on Sew Mama Sew's blog. I have the blocks cut and pinned...and low and behold I did not cut myself with the rotary cutter! I will post more pics soon.

Finally Finished!

I just finished this wonderful embroidery pattern from Sublime Stitching. The pattern is so retro! I love it!
I didn't do that great of a job on her hands...they look like little claws. Oh well, practice makes perfect!!!

Little Friends

I'm back! Wow, I was hoping to have a couple posts up by now but my procrastination has once again got the best of me! Not to mention I have a little boy with a bad case of the stomach flu. So instead of finishing my current project (embroidery patterns from Sublime Stitching) I created a few little friends to cheer up my son.

I found these wonderful boy/girl embroidery patterns from Goody-Goody Handmade. The embroidery took a little time to complete but it was super easy to sew into pillows (the boy/girl pillows have a pocket on the back). I used the Darling Dachshunds pattern from Sublime Stitching for the little puppies. I used plain white cotton for the face of each pillow and scrap flannel for the backs/pockets.
I am a beginner at embroidery and this is my 2nd some stitches could be neater/smaller, regardless my son LOVED his new friends!
