Busy, Busy, Busy...

I have been quite busy this year although my blog doesn't reflect it. I have been occupying my time with sewing. As you may recall a few years ago my husband bought me a new sewing/embroidery machine and I am finally putting it to use. In fact, it was a little over 4 years ago he bought because I wanted to make a quilt for the baby shower before Damien was born but my machine was so old and outdated that I couldn't even buy feet for it. You may recall the quilt I made Damien.

Of course I did it in a rush with only 3 days to the shower but little did I realize at the time how wrong I made it. I didn't use stabilizer when embroidering or anything but it was a learning experience and Christina loved the quilt.

So now that Damien is older, his taste changed and it was time for a new quilt...

(I don't have a twin size bed to show it on so just threw it over my queen size bed.) 

This time, I used stabilizers and even though it is extremely heavy embroidering, it came out good. 

I also am still working on my quilt. 

(At this point I need to sandwich and quilt it. Then add the next strip and ruffles at the bottom.) 

But I also make clothing. 


This is still a work in progress. It is missing the rosettes. 

I don't have photos of everything but I've been busy.
