I was searching for free quilt patterns and came across this cute pattern. It looks pretty easy so I thought I would share it with you. I know how hard it is to find cute easy quilt patterns that are free. It is a PDF so you will have to have acrobat reader to open it.
I stitched out this shirt for Andrew last night. They are having an Easter party tomorrow at preschool. I love the chocolate bunny with raggy ears and a tail. The brown fabric has letters on it. The bunny applique design is from Applique Alley.I also stitched out this cross for a mug rug. I love the pink and black color combo. I am thinking of making a mini log cabin block to go with it in pink and black.The cross was designed by Applique Momma.
I put this applique and embroidery design together today using Embird. I am going to stitch it onto a shirt for Andrew. The astronaut applique design is from Applique Frenzy. The planet and stars are a free design from the net. The embroidery font is also from Applique Frenzy. It is called Giggles and Grins. Applique Frenzy was recommended on Facebook by Applique Alley. (Whom I LOVE by the way.) I have a ton of her designs. Seriously, too many.
I made this Alabama Christmas ornament using a circle tag applique design from Applique Momma. I added the A from a design I already had. I used my Janome 350e Embroidery Machine to stitch it out.
I designed this easy baby quilt pattern on EQ7 using 5 inch squares in shades of blue. Click on the link below to print the pattern. It is in PDF format. If you can’t open PDFs email me and I will send you a copy in .doc or .odt format to open in Word or Libre.
Do you ever find yourself blog hopping from one place to another and come across a blog that you can’t believe you haven’t hopped to before? This morning I hopped over to Amy Bayliss’ blog Cajun Joie de Vivre. I was on my Pinterest board about tips for home. I pinned a home made hand soap tutorial made by Amy the other day. I wrote down the instructions to try. I have very dry skin from washing my hands so much. Usually when I go to a blog I browse to see what other information it provides.
Amy has a series of posts about housekeeping. I was intrigued. I struggle with finding the balance of being a stay at home mom of 3 boys, a wife, a christian, and working from home. She wrote a short post on this topic titled, But I’m No Maid, Getting Over the Maid Syndrome. I read it and a light bulb went off. I am blessed with so much from God. I asked to be a wife, mother, and an employee. I received these blessings and need to be thankful daily for them. I don’t want to say to much about the post. Please go read it. I know there are other ladies struggling with the same feelings and situations.
I did a practice run with a fringe giraffe applique design that I purchased from Applique Alley. I love her applique designs. I was worried about ripping out the bobbin stitches to get the fringe look. It was easier than I thought it would be. I love how it turned out. Now I am ready to sew it on a burp cloth. She is having a sale right now. The designs are .87 to $1.00.
