Love takes night!

My heart with bat wings has become a reality!
Yay! This plushie is roughly 29x12.
He really took no time at all to put together.

It's made out of fleece. I used some wire to hold the wings up and out.

I'm VERY happy with how the wings turned out. I'm proud of this guy!

Oh My! I think I Just Quilted Something!

It's not a quilt, but it's like a made a few tiny quilts, well in a way I did...

I got this idea from one of the free leaflets that you get at a craft store. I thought it was prefect for my kitchen theme.
I have always loved the raw edge look, that shabby chic look.

They are all made from my fabric stash, frankly it was starting to become quite the monster and had to be dealt with.

It is the first time that the applique was completely machine sewn! It was tricky for me but I did it!! Yay!

This was pretty easy. It took no time at all. I did all the cutting and placing in one evening. Then the next evening I sewed it all up!

I think my Granny will be very proud that I made something quilted.

Yet Another Coffee Fix

Sadly I have finally ran out of what a good friend calls "Tracy fabric". It's the fabric that I have use for all of my other coffee themed embroideries. So I picked a fabric that is similar to it.

My fill stitches (like the satin stitch) is getting better every time I do them. I like to set little challenges for myself. Hey, how else am I going to get better?

I haven't a frame large enough for this one (it's only 5 x 5), all I have right now is 4 x 6 frames.
I particularly like this one because I grind my own coffee beans, so it makes perfect sense.
