Table TopperWe were thrilled to see Carol Zentgraf’s gorgeous table topper on the cover of the new Creative Machine Embroidery.

Carol’s project uses embroidery designs from two Amazing Designs collections – Jacobean Floral and Jacobean Applique.

Wouldn’t this be lovely in a breakfast room?  Not that anyone in my house would be allowed to eat breakfast anywhere near it . . . .

Dragonfly Embroidery DesignGrey January days got you down?  This time of year, it can be therapeutic to bring a little Spring into your life – pick up some flowers for yourself at the supermarket, page through seed catalogs, and – of course – make Spring embroidery projects.

We love the Spring-y new Dragonfly Dreams embroidery designs from Sewing With Nancy.   Let these dragonflies land on a throw pillow,  fly up the border of a curtain panel, or renew something in your closet like the shirt shown below.
