Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed....

Something Old: my love of sewing and embroidery.  Something New: We welcome Kristen to our summer staff, making traveling without shipping concerns possible.  Kristen is doing an amazing job and in three weeks, she has taken charge of organizing me! (Toughest job.)

Also New: the phenomenal training I have been receiving. It is exciting to attend sewing shows and discover at all the new products being released in the sewing and embroidery market.

The baby hornet design in two sizes is our free project of the month. Join our newsletter if you haven't done so already, by clicking on the subscriber box at Embroidery on socks is easy with the "SockEasy", and you can learn how we do it with our free online videos.

This brings me to "Something Borrowed": I met up with AllAboutBlanks at a dealer training and fell in love with their samples. They had a pretty white linen dress with  coasters on it for pockets & a large M on the top.   I had to give it a try with my first grand child on the way.  I did add a little daisy motif around the neckline and arm holes using a wing needle and pink embroidery thread. I had to create matching socks and you can do the same, too!

The dress and coaster, both made of linen, are from and the lettering is built into my embroidery machine. The dress comes in white and pink.  Yes, I bought both colors!

Reminder: The baby hornet is our free subscriber design this month. If you are not a subscriber you can join on the website.

It is time for me to fly about this room, and take photos of new design sets...  more later!

ALL of your projects are just too adorable Ms Cookie. I know of one lucky grand daughter that isn't mine. (Smile)
