A Beautiful Long Weekend


    This past weekend I enjoyed an extended long weekend....which was AMAZING! Not much sewing got done this weekend...oh well there is always tomorrow! Have I ever mentioned what a good procrastinator I am? I should have been working on sewing samples but I just couldn't resist enjoying the sun! I have family visiting from Germany so we enjoyed our local  beaches. We really do live in the most incredible part of the world. 

I guess I best get working on those samples! Have a great day.

Machine Embroidery Fun

Hi all

    Hope you are all staying cool in this hot weather! I love the sun but anything over about 23 degrees just about does it for me!

   This last week I have started to work on our fall class schedule and trying to decide what fun things we will be doing. For some of my ladies we will begin to work on The Gypsy Embroidered Quilt. I have just 3 more borders to complete. It is coming out AMAZING! This quilt is really a work of art and for me personally it has given me so many more skills. I learned so much and have had to really use all my skills and learn many along the way.

   Last Saturday we had an Embroidery Machine Blitz. We were making a fun little quilt and all the ladies had so much fun. Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy!

Never enough thread!
Theresa's Appliqued Dog. This is her very first embroidery project!
Della's Super heroes!

Della loves her Designer Ruby and her Magnetic Hoop!
Lynne's animal crackers starting to come together!
   I am also really excited to start our new Row by Row Quilt. There is a group of about 12 ladies and myself who will be making Quilty Fun by Lori Holt. I just love this quilt and am so looking forward to it. I will be starting mine hopefully this weekend....I work out the kinks! Everyone else will be starting theirs in September.

Book available in store!

There are 2 options for layout. The one shown above and the second below. I love the scrappy look so I will be making the second option. The class is half and half divided!

Well in BC we are enjoying a long weekend so I will sign off now. Enjoy the weekend!
