    My husband's son bought him this poster with the family name (Fear) and crest with a description of the origin of the name. The design is applique and embroidery.

    Made for my son. The idea started with the yellow center mandala and grew from there.

    The mandala is a pattern called Almaaz, I bought it from eQuiltpatterns. Paper pieced and way easier than it looks!

    The pattern came in a book kit that I bought on clearance at Books a Million for 8 bucks for my son. He made the Ohio Star pillow and was done with sewing.

    I am afraid my camera is unfair with regard to color!
    Decided to go ahead and blog this as well as further projects.

    The purple squares are denim with cotton and the blue squares are sort of a harlequin check, blue on blue. I was unhappy with the blue squares plain so machine appliqued the small squares onto them.

  8. White Rotary Sewing Machine

    by , 09-21-2012 at 08:27 PM
    I bought this at a yard sale this week - $40 - I fell in love with the machine and cabinet and just had to have it ... it runs, a little noisy, but a beautiful stitch.
