Valentine Tree January 27, 2015

     I promised that I would post a picture of my Valentine tree after I finished all the ornaments.  Well, this is it, unless I come up with anything else I’d like to add to it.  It’s just a quick shot from my cell phone, so I apologize for the photo quality.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!



More Valentine Ornaments Done in Applique January 26, 2015

     Here are the last of the Valentine ornaments I’m appliqueing for my foyer tree.  Now if I just had the energy to go out there & decorate the tree.  I guess I’ll do that tomorrow. Enjoy!

Decorated Glass Valentines January 26, 2015

   As long as I had the camera out, I thought I’d share the decorated glass hearts I did today.  I still need to photograph the 4 new tree ornaments I appliqued today.  That’s next!

Applique Valentine Tree Ornaments January 24, 2015

 Here are the 4 Valentine ornaments I completed today.  I decorate a tree in my foyer for every holiday, and I’m trying to add a few more special things every year.  They take a while to make, but I will have them for years.  I believe I have 6 or 7 left to finish, and then I’ll make the special ones I have in mind for my sweet grand kiddos!  As for today, I am officially worn out.  I hope you enjoy these!

Valentine Tree Ornaments January 23, 2015

     Out of 12 ornaments that I have planned for my foyer tree, I only managed to get 2 done today.  As I was designing these, I wanted them to be as much of an “in the hoop” project as possible.  It took me a while to figure out how I wanted to do it, and try real hard not to screw up even one of them. I hate wasting fabric & time.  Of course the embellishments & ribbon have to be added after I’m done “in the hoop” since I’m going for that sweet Valentine look.  I actually think I achieved it!  I hope to get a few more done this weekend.  Valentine’s Day is almost here.  🙂

Lovebirds Appliqued Towel Set With Matching Tablecloth January 14, 2015

     I was finally able to digitize my “Lovebirds” applique & make a set of towels with a matching table cloth for ME! This has become a pretty rare occurrence lately. It felt like forever to be away from my sewing room since my surgery, but I’m back! It sure feels good. The best part is that I’ve actually got something pretty to put out for Valentine’s Day & Spring! Hmmmm…. what’s next?
