Mabel the Raccoon

An embroidery whirlwind blew through town this weekend and I finished up my raccoon embroidery. I had so much fun figuring out what stitch to use and how to solve problems along the way! I didn’t even mind – at all! – re-doing some sections. And bonus, I learned some tips to avoid problems the […]

Very Nice Mice

A guild member gifted me some amazing fabric – lots of it. I cannot wait to get going on a crazy quilt design! To thank her, I wanted to make her an ornament. The guild had a holiday dinner with an ornament exchange so I was hopeful to make two. Alas, I had zero ready. […]
