OK so I made this to put over emaly's Pics in the hall. I really like it but.........Im frustrated cux I thought I had it centered in the hoop but apparently not. I also dont understand why this couldnt fit in my smaller hoop but it made me use the bigger hoop which frustrated me too. you can still see some of my blue ink pen, i thought i got it out but it reappeared....I plan to make the other kids one too. And one for downstairs saying hurst family.

My latest embroidery project. A clock face. This was soo difficult. I ended up having to split the design but didnt have that capibilites so i had to download free version of embird to do it. I dont think i will do this as a business unless I ever figure out this better. plus it took over two hours to get this done. IM happy with it though.

HERE IT IS!!!! Im soo happy to be done with this, this has taken me soo long but here it is.... I so happy with it, Sebastian picked this out of a book and I was lucky enough to find the same colors as the book to use in this amazing bear paw pattern. If you look in the archives you can see the pic of what it is suppose to look like and I think I pulled it off. I did some straight line stitching and some stippling in the big black area and the last blue row too. Andy and I think this is the best ive done so far. Oh and I used mock binding......yippee!!!!!!! now onto more projects....:)

IM soo excited, I had my first Quilt nite. This is at my house, I picked a pattern and everyone brought their machines and the fabric I told them to get. We made a quilt top. I need to go get pictures of there baby blanket size quilt. We got the squares all made but not together. I had 4 women come, Stephanie didnt bring her machine, she wanted to watch and socialize but she crocheted. I think everyone had fun, Ketas machine messed up on her so she ended up going to buy a new machine. Keta also showed us how to make yarn Lei's so be on the look out for next years Christmas presents.....lol It was fun to share my love of quilting with other women, hadnt ever used her machine so she was very pleased with herself. :)

Today My friend Monica invited me and another lady to her house to learn to knit. Yea I can knit now. She loaned me her needles couldnt find any on the island and some wool yarn. Here is what Ive done on it so far. Im going to take it out though and cast on 20 instead of 10 and make a washcloth. Once Ive got this down really well, she will teach me how to purl. This was the English method.

Well I made this to experiment with. I want to make these to sell and possibly to expand and make cloth books about babies birth. I need to make each of the kids one so that I can hang these over their pictures in the hall:) Oh and I messed up the first time and put my Bday on it instead of Leias and had to seam rip it out, boy was that hard then realign it and do over the number date. Messed up that and had to do it again, but here it is, im not touchin it again...lol
This is the quilt that my neighbor asked me to make for her friend who is having a baby. She bought all the materials and is paying me to make the blanket. I embrodierd the name and year. Once agian it is the H block, she picked it out and its pooh like the one I made for a friend. I guess Pooh is popular! I also used mock binding on this, I plan to do mock binding on sebastains too.
