Some Recent Embroidery Projects

I made these cute bookmarks for our nursing techs as a "Thank You". I love the lace look of these bookmarks and love embroidering anything lace.

I also did this one for one of our male nursing techs who just got back from the beach. The In-the-Hoop projects are the best. I love watching them come to life in front of my eyes.

Here is a block that I'm working on. I'm calling the quilt "Gate to My Garden". The block consists of 4 embroidered squares that are then sewn together to make a block. One good thing about this block is that as it's embroidering it's also quilting. All I have to do is sew all the blocks together, back it, then just stitch in the ditch between blocks...uh...sounds easy.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Living! Happy Embroidering!



  1. I love the Sister bookmark you gave me! I like these too! I agree it is fun watching the machine embroider ! The Gate to My Garden is gorgeous! Such vibrant colors!

  2. Your sister sent me here! Love your blog. i can identify with a lot of things -- took care of my m-i-l thgough pancreatic canter 4 years ago, and now my mother is in end stage alzheimers.

    But we work though the bad things by surrounding ourselves with good things. Like quilting!

    I look forward to reading more about you and your sis!
