Embroidered Quilt Block

Well here it is. My first quilt block that is all embroidered. Not to bad for an amateur. It is all free hand and my own design. Mary taught me how to do french knots so I went a little crazy. This block is in a quilt I am making. I will show pictures of that once it is finished and the recipient gets it. Don’t want to spoil the suprise.



Tooth Fairy Pillow and Lye Soap

I have been encouraging my sister in-law, Mary to make some things to put on Etsy. She recently took a trip to KY to see the in-laws and Judy taught her how to make lye soap. I told her to wrap some up and I would put it on my Etsy store to see if we can sell any of it.



She also made an adorable tooth fairy pillow for her daughter Emily. I asked her to make one for Joshua. He will be losing a tooth soon. (I will post a picture of his in a later post). She is in the process of making a few to put on Etsy. They are just so cute. Her mother made some for her and her sister when they were little.It is completely hand sewn. Even the pocket.


Isn’t it adorable?

You can see the listing in my Etsy store.

Oh and on a sewing note, I made one block for a swap. Woo Hoo!!!

Sarah’s Choice Quilt Block

Sarah’s Choice

This block is named Sarah’s Choice. On 3 Sister’s Cyber Quilting I am hosting the Block of the Month or BOM for 2008. The swappers voted and chose stars for the pattern and blues for the color. All the blocks are beginners blocks. Each month there will be a different star block that I have chosen. Here is a link to the pattern if you would like to play along.
