I have had the pieces for these balls cut out for a very long time, I am going through and trying to catch up on all my U.F.O.S.     I think they turned out really well and as they are made all by hand ( I am not really into hand work), but it is something that I can do  while watching TV at night.

Cute Little Bag

This is the first project that I made on my new Embroidery Machine.  I bought a brother Dreammaker VE2200.   Just to try out the machine I downloaded the design as it was a free design from the Janome site.  It was an 8x8 design but as my hoop could only take a 7 inch design, I had to make the design smaller which I did in the editing of the Embroidery Machine. I was quite happy with how the little bag turned out, as it has been said not to change the size of In the Hoop designs. I have since upgraded to the 8x12 hoop for this machine.  Now I can  do some of those large designs and having lots of fun.

Something Special ....

I am having a little bit of fun, my sister's son and his wife have had a beautiful little girl called Sophie. After four boys she is a little ray of sunshine. So now I can make some pretty little pink things.  I bought the knitted bonnet and made the fsl flower  and the couple of other headbands. I am going to have lots of fun.....
