These are tiaras that I made for my great-granddaughters. The four-year-old said, "This is the most beautiful crown I have ever seen!" Now wouldn't that melt a ggrandma's heart...The designs came from Dainty Stitches. They are very inexpensive and easy to stitch. The big problem was to find a headband that would fit in the small slots. I finally found some that were just right at Dollar General. Now I have some for the next greats. Aren't they beautiful? The dark one are really purple. I also gave them net skirts. They were beautiful princesses.

Merry Christmas

A very Merry Christmas to all of you. Last year I made new stockings for all of the family. This year we added Landon, so his is the only stocking that was needed. I am sure that he will look forward to hanging his stocking in the coming years.
Some of last year's stocking were a bit big and I have heard complaints that it takes a lot of items to fill them. I bet some are not complaining...
More pictures after Christmas.

More Blocks from Garden Nouveau

These are my latest two blocks from the Garden Nouveau book by Vicky Lawrence. The tulip block is 12 1/2 x 18 1/2. I am using a Bernina 830 with the jumbo hoop. These blocks can also be completed with the mega hoop. These blocks have multi-hoopings. Anna Aldmon, digitizer, has done an excellent job of providing registration marks for hoopings and has an excellent set of directions. Anna has a website that shows the blocks in a different colorway.
The designs are available for machines that have large hoops.
