Early Christmas Present!

Yes!!! 100 spools of thread. This is an early Christmas present from my mom. This set is ideal for those of you out there that would like to get serious about thread painting. I love Gutermann thread quality and this wide range of colors will ensure that you have just the right color for your project. This display weighs a ton but, if you put the tread back you will have a good record of the color you used.

Sock Owl


This is made from one of my daughter's old socks. While I whipped this together on my sewing machine, you could sew by hand with one little seam! See my tutorial on hubpages.

Best in Show!!!!

My regular readers will remember how I raced to complete this quilt for the Cleveland Metro Parks Reflections in Nature Quilt Show. I'm proud to announce that when I arrived at the show today there was a Best in Show Ribbon hanging from it for machine embellished quilt. There were so many inspiring quilts there. If you are from the area, the show is open for one more day. Try and catch it.
