    Here are some recent projects!

    Stacked Stars you saw when it was a top. Now it is ready to be delivered.

    The autumn bed topper replaces my earlier spring tulip topper. You can see the tulip one peeking out on the edges.

    And the tree skirt is for a friend who requested a gingerbread treeskirt. She is paying me $60.00 which covers my materials and about 1/50th of my time. That baby was a time sucker!

    Very nice!!
    Tree skirts are a pain!
    I made one for a lady here. It has the submarine insignia embroidered on it. She absolutely loves it. I made it for her because she was having a "Scrooge" time last Christmas. Sure hope she doesn't contact me to make more!

    I thought that I could stop with the black fabrics but I had to add two more rows to make it big enough. Then because the gingerbread men were going to be hidden under the tree I had no choice but to add the applique. I did the blanket stitch last night while watching TV... I don't spend evenings in the sewing room cuz Paul gets lonely! LOL... I will be happy to stamp this one SOLD!

    I love the stacked stars and the fall one is such beautiful colours! I would never attempt a tree skirt - anything not square or rectangular scares me to death! :shock: Your's is beautiful - that lady got a bargain! :D
