Thoughts of Christmas

Thank you, thank you — you all touched me greatly with your sweet comments on our little Aiden!  I’m still looking at his pictures… we are truly smitten–no surprise, huh?!  Hopefully the kids will come visit us soon!  And his mom said she could use some more flannel bunting type blankets… so guess what I’m going to do!  And maybe he’ll need a Christmas stocking…?!

In the meantime, here are some of the smaller projects I’ve been playing with:

 I love to attach my beads free motion style, usually without a foot, but you can use a free motion foot, make sure your feed dogs are down, set a zig zag for the width you desire to go into the bead hole, and then to the side of the bead… and go for it!  I really use this technique alot.

 These pin’s edges are couched with yarn, using a free motion zig zag, as the yarns are twisted and sew on.

 The pins feature a base of black fabric, painted with Lumiere fabric paints, embellished with angelina, beads, ribbons, free motion threadplay, and fusible web that I painted. I cut them out in various odd shapes – (some not so odd I hope).

They are about 2″ in size, give or take.

 New linoleum stamps I’ve been carving for Christmas cards.  Is it that time already?  Well, perhaps not… but in the world of sewing… it’s time to kick it into gear! 

What projects are you planning? 
EnJOY your day!
