Tulip Embroidery for Quilting

I am very excited about this new embroidery design I am working on. I am using Gentle Art Sampler flosses on ivory quilting fabric and the varigated floss adds so much interest. I am using stem stitch on some of it and back stitch on some for variation. I am already planning which quilt fabrics to use when I make a wall hanging out of it. I plan to do three similar designs to make an oblong wall quilt.

Scissor Fob and Needlecase

A new sewing creation with fun quilting fabrics and beads. I am really liking beads. I wanted to play around with making scissor fobs. Very fun and so many beads and colors to choose from. Can't wait to make more.

Desert drawings

Beautiful weather for a desert hike. Light blue skies with cloud wisps and so quiet. We head out to explore the desert, ghost towns, and whatever we happen to run into. That is the fun part though, we never really know what we are going to find. We run into people drilling for gold hoping to strike it rich like they did in the 1800s. They have bags and bags of core samples hoping one of them contains what they work so hard for. We find old rock houses and they are so small, people must have just slept on the floor. We found an old town up in a canyon and that is where the drawings came from. The neatest old truck skeleton and small intact houses with name plates and old relics all around. Snow all around this area in the canyon, but we trudged through it just to peek into the old buildings for a glimpse.

IF "Choose" - Flower Cart

I love flower carts and have a hard time choosing which flowers to buy. Today it is very nice here in Nevada and I am anxious to have flowers in the garden, but will have to settle for buying some in the store. Good thing it is close to Valentine's Day. Happy weekend!
