Sewing "Cave"

OK, we all know what a "man cave" is. So this is my sewing cave. It's a converted "train room". Patience does pay off ladies!! These pictures are my initial move in and there is much more to come. Ted wasn't too sure about the wall color. And I do admit it's a lot of yellow, but it really looks nice and bright. It also softened up a lot with the wood floor. And right now it is my favorite place in the world to be, other than with my hubby:}

Sweetheart Sachet

Here's another small Sketch project that makes a great wedding or baby gift. It's a heart sachet that is sketched and has some small 3D elements. This is a real quick project and the word can be changed to anything, such as Dream, Love, Hope, etc.

Summer Sampler

I'm now completing a great 4D Sketch project titled Summer Sampler. It's a Crabapple Hill embroidery design that I took into Sketch and digitized. It turned out wonderful and has a few 3D type elements. This picture is from the cover of the pattern. I'll post my finished project as soon as I stitch the pillow together. I have the sides all complete but want to purchase an invisible zipper for the bottom seam (not called for in the pattern). This will allow me to remove the stuffing for cleaning, if necessary.
