One down one to go

I just finished this insert for my Mom yesterday.
She lives in Ipswich, ma. and we are going for a visit in a few weeks.
She and I will go get some matching fabric to make a pillow.
I hope the colors go in the room she wants this in.
Are colors the most challenging whn you are making a gift for someone?
That and sizes for clothing are for me...

I think my photos look a little better in these...

This is supposed to be a chain stitch but not sure if I am doing it right. It is hard to teach yourself without someone looking over your shoulder to tell you if you are doing it right....

I like these birdies!!

I got this pattern from Badbirds, here.
This is my next project for a premie baby boy that my friend had on Jan. 1st. He isn't even home yet so I have time to get this ready.

Okay this is going to be a quilt...did I just say that?

Don't panic! I think I can, I think I can!

(self talk)

This will be my first real quilt.


  1. the embroidery is awesome!
    cute and from my point it's perfectly made (though i'm not an embroiderer, so my judgement may be prejudiced by my awe for anyone who can do this!)
    your mom surely will love this!

  2. It came out beautiful! I just embroidered the same thing all in red for my mokm

  3. Your embroidery is awesome! I'm just getting into it, myself, so I can't tell you if you're doing anything wrong.

    To me, it looks like a pro did it, so that ought to count for something!
