A little Pause...

No I didn't fall off the edge of blog land!  However since my machine is in dire need of a trip to the sewing machine "doctor" I have been taking a little breather/pause,before jumping into 2014 with both feet.

Recently I had a request for a custom order of napkins like the set I made way back in 2011!  The above set is the same except that the fabric on the back sides are different prints.  My customer,also requested a set 13 x 13.

After several different test napkins,Wendy chose to have solids that coordinate with the center colors.

I am happy with how they turned out,and glad that Wendy is really happy with them too!

For the back sides I used a print to coordinate with the colors on the front.

Right before Christmas I finished up my Big Stitch pillow project started at Fabric Fest!  It was a gift to a friend at work.  Her favorite color is purple,and although this is not truly a purple,she loved it anyway!

Hope you all had a Wonderful Christmas with family and friends,and Wishing you a Happy and Prosperous New Year :)

(my machine is scheduled to be serviced on New Years day,so I will be back shortly thereafter)


  1. Glad your machine will be back soon. It's amazing how lost you can feel without it. Happy New Year!
