Just doing a bit of embroidery and and using some of the designs that I have bought over the years,.. I am making up for lost time since I have retired and loving it. I have got my Singer XL400 stitching really well and this is the machine that I used for embroidering these tea towels. I could get in my sewing room and not come out but I have other things that need a bit of attention too. I also love to garden and it has been so hot here with very little rain so it takes time to keep the garden watered. There is still not enough hours in the day for all the things that I want to do.

Finally finished this Log Cabin Blanket. It had been sitting there with just the last row to do. It was a reverse single crochet and as I had never done this before I kept putting it off. Also it has been really hot here in Central Queensland. I found a very helpful video on You Tube. Once I started the reserve single crochet I found it very easy and it didn't take long to go around the blanket. As this was the final row it made a nice twist on the edge and really finished off the blanket. Another one for the grandkids......

Sweet Pea Designs. I joined in the January sew a long and really enjoyed it. There were hundreds of mug rugs. It was good to see all the different combinations of fabric and cotton used. There was another one for February but I didn't have time to make it as it was a much larger project with 22 hoopings. I used my Singer for this Mug Rug and it stitched out beautifully. The main reason that I bought the Singer was for the bigger hoop.

Urban Threads, a site that has fabulous Machine Embroidery Designs. Quick and easy to make. I made a few so I can give them to some of my family and friends who have dishwashers. On the back of the tag I glued a magnet so that it can go on the door of the dishwasher and you just have to turn the tag to clean or dirty. A really great idea, Thanks Urban Threads.
