Spring Has Sprung

Spring came late this year but it has finally arrived with the daffodils and tulips in full bloom and the birds singing their songs each morning.  So it is a great time to introduce my new pattern "Bluebirds". Now you can have birds greeting you each morning in your kitchen with this new pattern. The bluebirds can be simply embroidered or you can add some color or applique.  Instructions for all are included. Enjoy this wonderful time of the year.


The new Snowfall quilt pattern features embroidered snowflakes and makes a good winter project for those cold winter days. The sweater below used some of the snowflakes and three skeins of Cosmo Sparkles, you could use white cotton floss as well. The patterns were printed on Sticky Fabri Solvy before sticking into place on the sweater.  When the embroidery was finished the Fabri Solvy washed away.


Just in time for Thanksgiving, a free apron pattern to make as a hostess gift or for yourself.  I picked bright colors and fabric from Strawberry Fields Revisited by Fig Tree for a a fresh look.  I added color before I embroidered but it would look nice with out the color too.  You can change the design for other holidays aprons or everyday aprons as well.  A great gift idea, hope you enjoy!
