Betz White. Very easy to make and I used tiny beads instead of doing french knots for the knobs on the machine. Even made the little spool of thread. So happy with how they turned out.

here. After I finish joining the squares I will be putting a border around all of the rug. I feel very pleased with what I have achieved as I am only learning to crochet.

Embroidery Garden and it is an In the Hoop design for Embroidery Machines. I used white felt and there was no need to use any stabilizer. I just hooped the felt. They turned out perfect.
Embroidery Garden just to give it a bit more character. Now my machine can take pride of place in my sewing room.

I was looking for something to brighten my lounge room for summer. I bought these yellow cushions from a cheap shop, but they needed something to add a bit of interest. The roses are made In the Hoop on my embroidery machine. The design came from Embroidery Garden. The silk petals are bought in packets and then stitched on a backing in a circle ending up in the centre, For the centre I had some black beads which I mixed with some Glossy Accents from scrapbooking and they all stuck together with a lovely shine. Very happy that I could transform some cheap cushions into something special.

here ( crazy mom quilts) and the directions were very easy to follow. It is really a surprise when you unzip the bag to find three little zippered compartments inside. By the way I got 2nd place and won a $25.00 voucher to spend on fabric. Lucky me.

I have a friend who does wonderful crocheting and will help me if I get stuck. The pattern for the Log Cabin Quilt is here and the directions are very easy to follow and the blocks are quick to complete. There are a few threads to stitch in but that doesn't take long either. I am very eager to get this project completed.

Embroidery Garden. The design uses the single petals that are bought in packets of a couple of hundred, and then you just lay them out in a circle and sew around on the bottom edge of the petals, starting from the outside working towards the centre. Covering the petals with some sovly helps with the stitching and stops the petals getting caught up. I stiffened the doily and then stitched it on the bag around the edge and then hot glued the rose on. I also used some old costume jewellery that I had for the centre of the rose.
