The past week has found Hubby and myself down with flu/sinus infections. We tried to manage Valentine's Day (in our pajamas) and my birthday the following day, but there wasn't too much enthusiasm about the whole thing. We will have a re-do when we are feeling more like ourselves. So far Hubby has missed a full week of work.
Even though I'm under the weather, the wheels keep turning about the quilts I want to make this year. I have a cute jellyroll race quilt to send to my granddaughter for her birthday next month and another one to finish in time for my grandson's birthday in July. I also promised my daughter a large quilt for her birthday this year in August.
As much as I love to quilt, my embroidery machine sings to me every day....I'm simply in LOVE with machine embroidery right now. I found a website a while back that has some terrific original designs, but some of them are macabre and geared more for punk and goth taste. The site is www.UrbanThreads.com. I dig through the designs and have found some wonderful designs. The Parisian Love Letter design pack is my current favorite.
Here is a machine embroidered valentine heart that's actually a love poem in messy script writing....this was just my sample. The design is from Urban Threads. I will make it again on different fabric and with better colors.
I hope everyone is healthy. I will be back here as soon as possible.
Until next time I wish you Peace & Plenty ~~~~ Barb
