Fall Harvest

Well I ended up having a great week. I received an email last night telling me that my Breast Cancer Eye Glass Case is part of a feature this week on the Team Quiltsy blog so take a look. That made me feel just great.

Secondly I just listed the last of my fall table runners and placemats on Etsy.

Each of the items are made with warm fall colors that will only contribute more color to you fall tables. As you all know I love to use my embroidery machine, so I embroidered a cornucopia on 3 blocks on one of the runners.

The placemats are reversable and can be used other either side

Halloween Table Runners

Normally I never make items for Halloween unless they are a special order, but this year I first decided to make my daughter a Halloween Tablerunner for her birthday, she and my grandkids are big, big fans of Halloween, well I had more material than I needed and instead of putting it in my stash bin I decided to make more and to quilt/embroidery them on my machine. Here are the results.

You can find them in my Etsy Shop at

Breast Cancer Awareness

As I know many of you are aware of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is a disease that has hit's almost all of us one way or another, family member, friend or yourself.

Last year I decided to help raise awareness and possible make a contribution for research.
I collected a variety of embroidery designs and designs this very simple lap quilt. I dedicated the quilt to my aunt and a very dear friend who both lost there battle. I also have a web page that is dedicated to all the courageous women who are fighting or are still fighting this battle.

You can find the quilt and several of the other items for sale at my etsy shop

These designs can also be embroidered on t-shirts, sweatshirts, pillows, robes and more. My most popular items last year where my t-shirts, pillows and the eyeglass case.
Prices range from $6.00 to $30.00 and $80 for the quilt.

Every item I sell I donate a portion to the Susan G Komen Foundation in my aunts memory.

If you are interested in having any of these designs you can contact me through my etsy shop or directly through email
