Having a blast!

I am having way to much fun with my new machine! Wayyyyy to much fun! I think I am driving my family crazy! I called my sister yesterday yesterday to tell her about something, and he response was "let me guess, you did that in your hoop?". So needless to say I have been excited!

I found a new website to order thread and stabilizer from. Go here. The small thread rolls are on sale, and the stabilizer is great so far. I even ordered some drop in prewound bobbins, and so far so good!

Here is what I have been doing:

WOW What a week~!

Well I must say this has been a GREAT week! I was able to score an awesome deal on a new machine (so if you are looking for an embroidery machine I have one for sale) that has a 6x10 hoop! Then on Friday, Ryan and I celebrated V-Day (as he always has to work on V-Day)so we went to dinner at Refrain. It was very very good, and I highly recomened it OVER Texas De Brazil! I have lots to show you that I have been working on this week....

WARNING: LOTS OF PICTURES!








The "Love Stinks" Skunk I purchased here.

I made the pillowcase dress, and for the life of me, can not remember where I got the bunny, but I LOVE it!

I made the flannel and minky burp pad from a file off of this site. It is so cute, and with it only being 9x6, is perfect for when you are on the go!

What little boy (of little boy's parents) don't love skull and crossbones? I got that design here! In fact, the whole site is 50% off still...I might just be going back!

I LOVE crosses, and they are very popular now, so when I saw this one, I had to have it. I also bought the others! Shhhhhh, don't tell Ryan how many I buy!!

Well, I am off, this morning I am making hooded towels, thanks to my friends tutorial. You can read here blog here. Her sewing and embroidery capabilites are incrediable!

Easter Towels and LollyPops!

My Mom's Birthday was yesterday, her and I have simailar taste and when I purchased this design I knew she would want it on a towel, and I was right. I stiched up this design to go with it and they are so stinking cute! In fact so cute that I made a set for my etsy shop!

Saturday night while out with Haven and Steven we had to stop at Joanne's. I got so inspired so when I woke up early Sunday morning (7am) and couldn't go back to sleep I made this out:
I am going to put this on my Etsy shop also! Everyone that I know is having boys....so I guess I need to make a boy outfit or two. I love how my korker bow/headband turned out, I think I will be making more of them! And so easy...I hope I have girls, way more options of things to make for them.

Well I am off to start my day.....I hope everyone has a wondermus week!

Patience-Or Lack There Of!

I used to have all of the patience in the world~ I was going to be a teacher so I was going to need it. However, after working for a highly demanding lawyer, then a highly demanding EA, and then working with an even HIGHLY demanding father, I have zip zero zulch patience left.

But I am very slowly working at adding it. I need to make sure I have it back before kids, or I am going to be in for it!

Anyways- back to the point....Last night I received an email about a site that I LOVE to buy designs from, saying that they were having a .99 cent sale and 50% off the rest of the site. Well as Ryan would say "Who is Macy to turn down a sale?" so I motored on over there and got some of the most aswesomest (yes that is a word...just don't go look it up!)designs and I just have to share with you. this lollypop, gothic cross, and this cross.
I can NOT wait to try these out, hopefully this weekend. Plus my serger should be coming this weekend! WOOOHOOO AND the remodel on the living room, dining room should be done. Then if I can squeeze ONE more item, I may have to make some korker bows. See why I need patience? The remodel could go awry and nothing else could get done.....I just don't know if I have the patience for that!

I'm back!


I'm back! I missed the internet so much! Long story short- I fired AT&T....and now we have suddenlink! LOVE IT!



Now back to the program at hand~


I wanted a Valentine's Day Banner so back, however as the story goes- they are for the "bigger" hoops, so I was so excited when I found a banner for the 4x4 hoop! I got it at http://http//www.oregonpatchworks.com/ListNew.php. I love the way it turned out.
This weekend besides the remodel of the house I am going to get back into the sewing room...I have been going "crazy" with all of these sales and been buying designs....so much to do (want to do) so little time. It seems as if this "work" thing always gets into the way of what I want to do!
Till next time....
