Girl Angels.......

So glad I started early in the year to make these Angels for my family.  Every year it is the same, it gets very busy from now until Christmas and things don't get done.  I have now finished the girl angels for the females in the family.  They are so cute and I hope that they love them as much as I do. The design is from 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.

Finally Finished

Finally got around to finishing the cover for my Singer Embroidery Machine. It took me quite a while to make all the selvage  blocks.  I found a very long selvage that looks like small fringing and stitched that around the bottom of the cover.   I also made an In the Hoop flower from 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.
