Embroidery for Me!!!

The flower design was a freebie from Urban Threads.  Their designs are always stitch out great and you can always find something unique at their site.  The other design is from Stitch on Time and they also stitch out wonderfully.  Claire will also ditigize any design  for you at a very reasonable price.  Trying to find blank tops suitable for embroidery is not easy so I bought a few when I found these.

A Surprise in the Mail!!

Today I received a surprise in the mail.   I joined "The Little French Swap" that Cheryl Goss organized from Willowberry Designs.  Jamie from Beach House Quilts was my swap partner and she sent me a beautiful large white bag with a drawstring top.  It was beautifully embroidered with some  lavander flowers.  I am sure that this bag is going to get a lot of use.  I would like to thank Cheryl for organizing the swap and Jamie for the great swap gift and I hope you are feeling a lot better.

Help Please !!!!

I would like to make Personalised Christmas Baubles for my family.  Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this.  Freehand writting is not an option,  I cut the letters out with my Big Shot Machine and stuck them on with glue and then went over the letters with gold glitter glue.  I used white paper and it shows through in some places and around the edges. Does anyone have a better way of doing this.
