Yippee!

After working like crazy I have finally finished all of my new embroidery patterns (11 in total!) and a new book called Gather the Passing Seasons.  This book has 12 monthly FUSIBLE WEB appliqué blocks to swap out throughout the year. The book was delivered yesterday and it was so much fun opening the boxes and flipping through the actual pages.  It turned out really pretty ; )  40 full color pages with quotes and little paintings to add a bit of eye candy.  All of the patterns and the book are available on my Etsy site.



Pin It!
