Guy Table Runner

My son requested an everyday table runner. He likes to put them on his dressers to protect the wood and also to add a little decor to his room. Probably he just knows I like to make him things. Anyway I found a little material leftover from the lap quilt I had made his grandfather several years ago. I know he will remember the quilt and his grandfather when he sees this table runner. Recently he hung all of his tools in the garage precisely, just like the fabric. I am sure he will appreciate his new table runner.

A Birthday present for my Mom

My mom gave me some sweatshirts to embroider for her about a year ago. Machine embroidery on sweatshirts is not my idea of a good time, so I put it off. I bought a new hoop-it-all embroidery hoop for my embroidery machine and decided to try it on the thick sweatshirts. It worked great and I managed to embroider all three of these sweatshirts in one afternoon quite painlessly. The designs are from 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!

Even More Bunnies!

This was a UFO that I started a few years ago. It is a Nancy Halvorsen design from her "Easy Does it for Spring" book. The bunny garland. I like the way it turned out, but I think it's time to do something non-bunny related :-p
