Here I am, sewing for fun. I had purchased an embroidery CD that does cross stitch. I used to do cross stitching but I was eventually reduced to doing so by wearing a magnifying glass around my neck. Now I can cross stitch all with the simple ease of my embroidery machine. Amazing designs. I gathered up a bunch, grabbed up some fabrics and made a quilt. I love it....

For those of you who follow me, you know how I love to take sweatshirts and make jackets. I have never been able to wear a pull over sweater or sweatshirt because I feel confined. Long long LONG ago my parents gave me a pretty sweatshirt and sweatpants and the only way I could wear the sweatshirt was to make a jacket out of it. It was glorious. I appliqued southwestern fabric designs, I beaded, I added dangles and sequins and wherever I wore this jacket, I got compliments. So from then on I was on a roll to alter sweatshirts. Here is my most recent. A pretty turquoise in SM, with flowery fabrics on the prairie points and pocket. And a tote to-boot with a felt yellow flower. Hope you think it is as pretty as I do.
