About

My passion has been quilting, but since I’ve gotten a commercial embroidery machine, my passion seems to be buying more embroidery designs than I will ever be able to possibly use!

Having two rooms dedicated to sewing and embroidery has also allowed me to accumulate more fabric than I know what to do with. My goal is to use my fabric and designs to do fabric decoration, and will list those items as they’re completed.

My mother says that I must have inherited the sewing gene from my great-grandmother, as none of my great-aunts or her have ever sewn!

I also participate in the Briar Patch Craft shows in the Phoenix, AZ metro area. If you’re local, please stop by and see me.

    Hi, Janice. Thanks for commenting on my quilting blog. Sorry you lost your first long post. I hate it when that happens!

    Question: Do you make custom quilt labels with your fancy embroidery machine? 🙂

      Cheryl, Thanks for your comment and your reply. I haven’t made any custom quilt labels yet, but there is no reason why I couldn’t by selecting a design with space for lettering and a frame around it. I have a couple of s/w embroidery programs (Generations and Bernina v6) but still a novice at both, I’m sure it can be done. I might be able to work on some this weekend while we’re driving to Vegas to see Cher in concert.

      So far I’ve done various designs for tote bags, tank tops, bibs, aprons, sweatshirts, tees,and other baby stuff. I try to convert my test stitchouts into tote bags.
