If there were only more hours in the day to do the fun stuff! Last week I went to a sewing and quilting show at the local fair grounds.
It was primarily to get information and ideas for my machine embroidery business. They were having a special on the top 100 most popular colors for embroidery machines, 50% off! But now I don't want to store the spools properly, they looks so pretty in the box!
Our cat Milkyway approved as well.
They had some make-and-take projects and it can't all be work and no play, right? This one involved using wonder-under to do applique work on a kitchen towel. I need to machine zig-zag around the edges still, and do some finishing touches, like the eyes and mouth.
Poor thing can't see! I feel guilty!
I found a new design company called Bird Brain Designs. They do wonderful, country style redwork, as well a felting, and projects in felt. This is a pattern I bought from them. Isn't the strawberry pin cushion the cutest? Can you see the little ladybug on the green felt leaf?
I found a few other goodies to bring home as well, now I just need to find the free time to just do what I want to do. My first project is going to be that pincushion!
Oh, I almost forgot!! The other cool thing about Bird Brain Designs is their free patterns!! If you like doing redwork, I highly recommend you check them out.
If you had free magical hours right now, what would you be doing?
