A New Way to use Yo Yos

A Wonderful Idea from Nancy Notions.

Watch this great Video from Nancy Notions. It shows you how to use yo yos for smocking. This is just a quick piece that I did because I was so eager to try it out.  I will be making the cushions they are georgeous. You can even make 3D flowers, really easy too.

Cards for Family & Friends

Birthday Cards for my Grandsons, Thomas who was 8 on the 20th May and Matthew will be 15 on the 3rd June. We are going for a visit this weekend with presents and a cake, I am looking foward to seeing them again.  The other two cards are for a very good friend and my Daughter-in- Law. I found this little paper dress pattern here at   MeiJo'sJoy Blog and thought how nice it would be on a card so I just had to make one.

Finger Puppets for FNSI !!

For FNSI I made finger puppets for my grandchildren and their cousins. They are made from felt and made In the Hoop on my Embroidery Machine. I had been wanting to do this for a while and FNSI was the perfect time for it. I would like to thank Heidi and Bobbi for doing such a great job with FNSI so I am organised to spent my friday night sewing.

Hot Stuff !!!!

My grandson is football mad.  He plays Touch Footy and Rugby League. When he is not playing footy he is watching footy games on T.V...  He is a great little footballer.  I thought that this would be a great design for him.   They were two different designs but I think that they work well together.  He put it on straight away so looks like I had a win with this one.  Boys are soooo hard to make things for.   It would have looked better on a  black T-Shirt, I only had a dark grey.
