lace ornaments


I recently learned that making lace on an embroidery machine is very easy and fast. These are the first ornaments I tried. I've heard these sell well at craft shows; I'd love to know if that's true because, from a seller's perspective, these would be money-makers.

Baby Quilt


This is just a little quilt I recently made for a new baby boy in our church. The pattern is from the book, Sweet & Simple Baby Quilts. I "wrapped" it in a matching Humbug Bag, of which I forgot to take a photo. The blues in this photograph don't show up as vibrant as they really are. I really need to learn how to take better pictures of my projects.

a commissioned piece

This is a flyer from a church in PA; the image was photographed from inside the church through a window. I was asked to created a pillow for the retiring pastor, using the window as the focus of the pillow. Here's what I created.I used plain black cotton fabric for the main body of the pillow, and a soft yellow swirl print for the background. The pillow is edged with a satiny black trim.
