Megan and I are trying to start a business of sewing and embroidery.  We have created a Facebook page to help us.  GentleHearted Creations.  It is of course slow going.  But we are getting started.    If you are a Facebook member you can view the page with this link.  GentleHearted Creations

Last week at the Trenton, Quilt and Sew we made aprons.  I love going to class!  You can learn something new no matter how long you have been sewing.  We zig-zagged over fishing line to pull the ruffle for the bottom of the apron.  It is reversable and very cute!

I have finish another purse.  yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

This one is a Moon Shine Designs purse called the Paddington Satchel.  I made it with Moda fabric from the Sonnect collection. 

I learned several things making this one.  That when a pattern calls for rigilene (or they spelled it rigiline)  it is polyester corset boning.  It was used around the top of the bag to give the opening some stiffness so it stays open.  It works really great! – but you need a machine with some power and ability to go through really thick spots.   Also for the piping I used (believe it or not) weed eater line instead of nylon piping.   lol  It gave it a bit of extra pop and stiffness to the piping and worked really well.

Nathan material.

This is a quilt I made for a special friend of mine.  It is made from the Loralie Salon series.  It is one of the most fun quilts I have ever made.  Made out of the Turning Twenty around the Block pattern.  The quilting on this one was done at Betsy’s Quilting Barn.  Stay warm Mair! 🙂

This was my first attempt at applique embroidery.  I used the Hatched in Africa, Cuddlesome Critters Applique, Set 1  I was just practicing so I used old jeans and when I got done I liked them so well I wanted to make something out of it.  So I made this wall hanging.
