Monthly Make for October....

I found this cute embroidery pattern on Etsy at bigBgsd called "Sewing Room".

It has all of these really sweet motifs and I used one of them to make a little something to hang on the wall of my sewing room......

I think it's pretty cute and I'm very pleased with myself for doing such a neat job.

There are 13 pages of embroidery ideas in the pattern and I was thinking of making a sewing machine cover using some of the other motifs.

Kim....the owner of the Etsy store also has a blog......big B which is of course a blog about embroidery:)

The little needle case in the first picture is a freebie pattern from Wee Folk Art. It was supposed to be a business card holder but I changed it a bit. It now opens up flat and holds all of my embroidery needles.

The pictures are not the greatest as it's a bit dark here at the moment. We are getting a lot of rain and wind today and in fact it looks like we are going to have a very wet week ahead.

I'm going to add this make to my Monthly Makes for October 2012:)

Take care.

I Won A Giveaway:)

I'm a bit late blogging about this as I received my giveaway prize last Thursday but I was busy messing about with other stuff.

I was the last person to enter this giveaway at So September so you can imagine my surprise when I won.

Such a generous giveaway from Corinne...........three wooden embroidery hoops, a package of Thread Heaven, "The Fine Line" water erasable pen from Dritz, a lamenated pocket guide to embroidery stitches, eight skeins of DMC floss and two pieces of linen to get me started on a project with all of these goodies.

and, a 2013 calendar for my kitchen wall.......I think it's printed on Kona cotton. It's lovely anyway and there are directions on how to mount it to hang on the wall.

Corrine is a designer of lovely unique embroidery patterns that she sells online under her business name of September House. She often has free patterns that she offers on her blog too as well as helpful hints and tutorials.

I keep on saying that I'm going to try to get better at embroidery and learn much more about it so this giveaway was perfect. 

Take a moment and go over and pay her a visit:)

Take care.
