Small Projects and Samples

Arrived back in the US a week ago last Sunday, nice to see DH and the dogs again. The weather is also a nice surprise really sunny. I hear ware going to hit the high 90’s this week but this will also be very muggy as we are forecast to have high humidity. Anyway enough of me proving how British I am by discussing the weather !

I have been out running a few times last week and thanks to some of the residual jet lag, I have been able to go early in the morning. Friday I met Sara for lunch in the town, we had a very nice time and really must do it again soon. Friday night I decided to try out one on my new John Deer embroidery designs. It is a fringed flower, very pretty and stitched out nicely. What do you think?

Saturday morning I went down to Quilters Attic for a class on 5D software, very good but I really need to keep working with it as I am not really using it enough to get the full benefit of its features. So with that in mind I went off to Homegoods and bought some nice towels and then designed an embroidery to go across the band – I am pleased with the results.

His and Hers towels for the hot tub. Buoyed by my new renewed enthusiasm for smaller projects and made myself a shop card holder with my serger

Quickly followed by a quick serger case to hold my mouse and 5D dongle

I was now on a roll so next decided to tackle some of my orphan blocks and turn them into cushion covers.

Then I rounded the afternoon off with trying out another of the John Deer designs, I think I will turn this into a small wall hanger.

Phew !! that was fun. This week I get to work from home and then next week I am off to Baltimore.
