I come from a long line of sign writers and am happiest with a brush and some paint! Add
paint to fabric and I get really excited!!

Machine Embroidered Fabric

This has been a fairly labour intensive project, but one I wanted to try for ages. I used a selection of those lovely decorative stitches on my Pfaff to create a piece of fabric. This piece is designated for my sister and her beautiful photo prop dresses but now that I have tried it, I will change it up a bit and create another piece to use myself in a small quilted project of my own. It was great practice though kind of boring because you have to pay close attention to what you are doing. That means no straying eyes so no distracting movies on the laptop....darn!

Having our daughter home on Valentine’s Day meant her Dad bought me some beautiful flowers, specifically tulips. They sure brighten up my kitchen, especially when outside there seems to be snow, snow and more snow these days. Anyway, they are too pretty to not share. Enjoy.....

I am hooking up with The Needle and Thread Network. Check it out and see what other needle folk across Canada have been up to!


  1. Love the tulips! The snow has to end eventually. I would like to see what you will do with such a piece of fabric, very intriguing.

  2. You sure had to have a lot of patience doing all that stitching, glad that you got some flowers.

  3. I have to admit, it was a lesson in patience. I was getting pretty anxious to finish it! And I really enjoy flowers so a nice bouquet in a cold snowy month was very special. Thanks for visiting my blog!
