My new(er) Pfaff sewing machine hung over my old sewing table by about 1". Enough to justify finally getting a new sewing table. I was afraid it was going to be too big, and it is big, but it works.

I've pulled out fabric to make a sewing machine cover and serger cover as soon as I can find time for something for me!

I love the extra space under the flip-up extension.

Notice I'm not showing the other side of my studio! LOL

I found the perfect sized large plastic drawers (budget-friendly) for this tempting storage space. I was able to put all my PIGS in the drawers with room to spare.

While I was waiting for casters for my new sewing table I set up my sewing machine on my cutting table. Not a very satisfactory arrangement, but I did manage to hem this square of fabric for a new table scarf. I thought it was going to go on an outdoor table, but didn't make it through the living room. 

This is fabric that somehow jumped into my cart when

I was at the fabric store. It's so amazing how that happens!

In bringing out more spring-like d├ęcor for the house today, I decided I needed a new table topper to match the placemats I made in 2015. I still have plenty of the fabric left.

I thought this machine embroidery design would be ideal for Julia. Her Papa is German.

It's hard to find plain shirts to add embroidery to, so this one looks like a little boy's shirt.

This is a small coin purse I made for Iris as a little Valentine gift. Yes, it does contain money! It's a machine embroidery in-the-hoop design from


For Emelie

These are the Valentine cards I made for family and a friend. I used machine embroidery designs. One of the ones I made mysteriously disappeared. I wonder where/when it will show up!

For Shirley

For Leslie

For Iris

For Sonja

For Julia

I've finished the I-Spy quilt for Julia's 2nd birthday. These are the same fabrics that were in Sonja's quilt and backed with the world map fabric. Quite appropriate for this little German/American girl.






I then pieced the remainder of the I-Spy fabrics into two un-quilted tops which have been donated to Project Linus.
