I realized I hadn’t shared with you last month’s Embroidery Bee designs that are now available for all.
The candy holder is the Christmas Lollipop Holder Set.
And the alphabet is the Bird Monogram Alphabet Set.
If you remember, throughout 2017 the in-the-hoop project will always be some type of candy holder along with a full alphabet set and all Embroidery Bee designs are made in your 4 x 4 hoop with the occasional exception that a bonus design might be thrown in that requires a larger hoop.
Get a head start with your Christmas gift giving. The Christmas Lollipop Holder Set is a set of three designs Make a basket full to set by the door for guests, Tuck them in Christmas stockings, or place them on the Christmas table. They stitch up quickly and easily using just felt. Make them for your child or grand child’s Sunday school or classroom friends and get lots of Oh’s and Ah’s from everyone.
This beautiful and delicate alphabet is perfect for an heirloom dress or linen napkins on the table. Stunning! It is made with four thread colors, but for an elegant look, just advance through the design without changing the colors.
Consider the beauty of tone-on-tone matching the thread to the fabric.
Friends, if you haven’t yet, give some thought to joining the Embroidery Bee Club. As said earlier, each month you will receive a full alphabet set and a candy holder at the cost of only $5 a month which is a savings over the regular price. The designs will arrive on the 1st of every month in your inbox. It is easy, simple and fun!
Immediately upon joining, so your sewing machine doesn’t have to wait to happily hum, you receive this fun Bee Bold candy wrapper design.
Creative Country Happenings
I’m reading and learning how to make Kombucha. Have you ever heard of that? It is basically a fermented tea which is supposed to be full of probiotics and nutrients. Bottles of kombucha may be purchased at health food stores or maybe even at your local grocery store, Costco also carries it, but they are costly little buggers so I’m going to do it on my kitchen counter. If you’ve tried it, what are your favorite flavors. I want to add fruit to mine but not sure what to start with.
If you’re new here, or haven’t yet checked out the Embroidery Bee, there is a lot of “Happy Stitching” going on. Just click the one minute video to see just some of the club’s previous designs.
On the 1st of each month you receive a newsletter with a full alphabet set and an in-the-hoop candy holder. Both are ideal for stitching up something special for yourself or for gifts to give to friends and loved ones.
There are fun creative ideas as well as inspirational photos sent in by our members.
I woke up to this beautiful morning. Don’t let the sunshine fool you, it is only 40 degrees outside! Perfect for wrapping up in a quilt and enjoying my morning coffee outside. Still, the tulips and daffodils are blooming and the trees are budding and leafing out. Glorious!
In celebration of spring, last month’s Embroidery Bee designs have been released to all. Here is the Organza Flower Alphabet Set.
Add some sweet decorations to wreaths. Tie a flower onto your sewing machine handle with your initial. Attach to the zipper of a backpack and more.
The center is free standing lace. The petals are intended to have a fabric such as organza, or other sheer and shiny fabric. Mylar is another great option for shine and sparkle.
Hang several in the window and let the sun catch and reflect from them.
The hanger is the first color stop. Use the design as an applique on a child’s shirt by just advancing past the first thread color. Then add a bow for the finishing touch.
As with all Embroidery Bee designs you can make these in your 4 x 4 hoop.
The Organza Flower Alphabet set may be found in Etsy and in Zibbet.
Friends, I hope wherever you are, that you are having a beautiful day too. Do something creative. Make something fun. Do something to make it a great day.
