Hand Made


 Hi!! Happy Monday! Where DID the weekend go? It flew right on by...gorgeous weather one day, rain the next. But that's OK because  "hand made" was the focus of the week. Lots of sewing for my shop and some embroidery.
The pattern is from a special issue of BHG and I really wanted some easy stitching. Once I got started, I couldn't put it down. Stitch, relax, repeat.  Just what I needed.

I decided to stitch it to the sewing machine cover that I made when I first started quilting. The floss colors were a perfect match and it makes me smile to see the words "hand made".

  4. I love your sewing machine cover. I plan on making one soon. And I even did some embroidery for it too. I used some sewing designs from a new Aunt Martha pattern.
    Have a great week!

  10. I love this piece of embroidery. Can you expand on where the pattern was from? I don't know if I'm being stupid, but don't know what BHG refers to?
    Would be grateful if you could get back to me.
