I really have been sewing, alot. I just haven't been blogging. It is much more fun to see what everyone else has been doing on their blogs. But here is a little of what I have been doing. I finally got my Fat Quarter Shop Mystery Quilt finished. It is a fun quilt. My LAQ almost didn't give it back she liked it so much.
The tree is an in the hoop embroidery project by PJ sold by Embroidery.com. I am doing a Santa in the hoop now. Cute!
Hope everyone is having a good holiday!

Rush on over to MooseStash Quilting to enter for a chance to win a New Baby Go. The Go's are all the rage in the quilting community now. They look like alot of fun. I am so envious of how easy, fast and accurate they make cutting all kinds of shapes. Think of all the quilts you could make! I for one would love to have the Go just for the applique shapes. I love how the machine embroidery digitizers are creating designs to go with the appliques you cut from dies for the Go. Gorgeous!

Love this wild flower!
I have been busy working on my Mystery Designer Christmas quilt from The Fat Quarter Shop that I started June 2010. Hope to have pictures of the flimsy posted soon, then off to the quilter and home again so I can display it this Christmas. It is really a cute quilt. Love its aqua, red and green colors.
I am loving the rain we have been getting and the hot summer days in between. Hope your summer is perfect!
Gotta love them dog days of summer:p.

Hatched in Africa. The rules were to sew a bag and decorate it with HIA machine embroidery designs and add some bling. The designs I chose were from the Jacobean Jewels collection and the pattern I used for the bag is Butterick 4147. I added swarovski crystals for my bling. My bag won 2nd place!!! I actually won $100.00 to use towards some more of their beautiful designs. I so enjoyed picking out new designs. I already have new projects dreamed up to use with them. If you love machine embroidery, HIA designs are awesome!

Embroidery Library. I love the hummingbird. Check out the detail by clicking on the picture to enlarge it. My mom loves sweatshirts and I am sure these will make her happy. I might even do a few more now that I have discovered how great my new embroidery hoop is!

I made a new table mat in pretty Spring colors and look who hopped on it! This is the cute little bunny I found during my latest garage sale shopping excursion. He looked so sad I just had to bring him home. He looks like chocolate, good enough to eat. Yummy!

A Spring pillow for my daughter. The embroidery is from Embroidery Library and has 76,567 stitches. It took me most of a day to machine embroider it. Just think, it took me over a year to cross stitch the bunnies below and a day to embroider these bunnies. I love both techniques, the process and the outcome. You have to admit that machine embroidery is the best for instant gratification though. Which do you prefer?

Life can be so distracting. I have neglected my blogging for too long. I have also been neglecting my sewing machines and all of that beautiful fabric in my closet. I have been stitching though. Here is what I am working on. I am getting close to having it finished, then I will take them to the framer. I plan on having these bunnies done for Easter!
