Some Birthday Finishes and I made my Sister do something!!


Renew, release, let go. Yesterday's gone. There's nothing you can do to bring it back. You can't "should've" done something. You can only DO something. Renew yourself. Release that attachment. Today is a new day!---Steve Maraboli



I have been glued to my new embroidery machine since I got it and this week I worked on some Birthday gifts for my Sis......I wanted to make her a year's worth of hanging kitchen towels so she would have one for every season.......


need I say that she loves Sun Bonnet Sue???  Missing from the photo above, is Sun Bonnet Christmas.............The fun thing is that since I still needed to make her I waited for my Sis to come over to show her my new toy and together we started making the Christmas embroidery and now guess what????? I have "made my sister" get an embroidery machine!  LOL........(turnabout is fair play??)



 Some of the Sunbonnets from my machine are all embroidery like Christmas Sue, above, and some I have used the applique technique like 4th of July Sue, below.


I still need to finish making the hanger for Christmas Sue so I am headed back upstairs to my sewing room....tomorrow I'm showing you the cool needlecase my Sis gave me yesterday!

So I'll talk to you tomorrow.....Ta-Ta for now!!
