Pillowcases for FNSI

FNSI was very special this month as it was for an organization called Conkerr Cancer  - Giving sick kids a reason to smile one pillowcase at a time -.   I made two pillowcases hoping that they can help to put a smile on a childs face. I would like to thank  Handmade by Heidi and Craft Vegas Mom for organising this  wonderful  challenge.

Easter T Shirt

This is a T Shirt I embroidered for my youngest grandson for Easter.   I only have  grandsons and I am always looking for designs suitable for older boys.  This design is from Urban Threads and they have some great designs for boys of all ages if you like something a little different.

I'm Enjoying It !!!!

Once again I am doing something different, Hand Embroidery WOW !!!!.   I am really enjoying it.  I found a little book that I had bought many years ago.  It is called 100 Embroidery Stitches and has a lot of photos with a great explanation of the stitches.  I have been trying very hard to get the stitches right.  I am getting better as I do more.  I have made two lavender sachets and a doiley for Christmas Presents.  These great patterns by Cheryl Goss  are free and can be found at Willowberry Designs.
