Patchwork Quilt !!!!!

Finally finished after about 2 years.  The design is from Sweet Pea and all of her designs stitch out great.  There are 192 x  5 inch squares and 120 of the triangle border blocks.   I had to bring my sewing machine out to the kitchen table to put the quilt together.   Once I started I decided to get it finished.  There was a lot of push and shove getting the quilt through the machine.  It was to have a scallop around the bottom of the quilt but decided against as it would have been too hard to get a nice even scallop, so I decided to bind it.  The quilt is for my grandsons 21st Birthday, I hope he likes it.

Baby Towels !!!!

 I loved this machine embroidery design as soon as I saw it.  I have been waiting patiently to hear if my first great grandchild will be a boy or a girl.  Finally found out that the baby is going to be a little boy so I now I can start making baby things.  The Ellie Elephant design  is from Stitch Delight and stitched out beautifully.

Tea Towel Embroidery

Just some Machine Embroidery on my new DreamMaker  Brother Machine. It is stitching beautifully and it even cuts the jump stitches. It certainly makes a difference not having to cut all those jump stitches.  Lots of designs, the camping one is from My Darling Designs, the other were from Urban Threads and Gina Grace Designs..

Roses, Roses Everywhere......

Now I have the bigger hoop I have been practicing and decided to do the leg of a pair of my jeans.... I had to unpick the inside seam of the leg so that the fabric could be hooped.   The Rose  design is from Urban Threads.   I used the 7x12 hoop and the design took about 7 hours to stitch out.  It was done in three hoopings.  There is another Rose at the top that is not visible...  I can't wait to wear them out somewhere.
