Sammy – Wing Needle Sunbonnet Sam

~~~ Links to purchase Sammy and Little Sammy is at the bottom of this page ~~~

What makes a Sunbonnet Sam even better?

Frogs! (and a fly)

Or so my hubby said…repeatedly. I was going to have him holding a bouquet of flowers but the whining got too intense and I relented. Sigh. However, I even added a fly! And with that I introduce Susie’s beau, Sammy.

Sammy sports the same wing needle stitch work as Susie, in his hat and shirt, and in the sewout above I used the same pastel tones as I used when sewing Susie.

‘We Ride Together’ Tandem Bike

Bicycle, Tandem, Bike,Tandem Bike, machine embroidery, machine embroidery bike, machine embroidery tandem bike, 6x10, 8x11.

This sew out will be part of a quilted project…so stay tuned!

My husband is an avid biker. I enjoy it in cooler weather but not a regular biker. We have always talked about getting a tandem bike. We learned in our biking together on separate bikes that we can’t hear each other talking, I can’t keep up with him, and he doesn’t get any exercise when biking with me.

Cottage Love Collection

Cottage Love 6-Inch

Links to each collection can be found at the bottom of this page

I’ve been holding onto this artwork for a long time but I didn’t think anyone would be interested in embroidery cottages. I decided to start making these anyway. I love them myself and am anxious to make projects with them. I have so many projects in mind for them. 

I created several hand look stitches for sewing onto heavier fabrics like fleece and wool, but incorporated them into these sew outs as well for truly original designs. These sew outs I used regular quilting cotton fabrics as well. They are full of details. I can’t stop looking at them!

There are 3 appliques in these designs – house, roof, and dormer.

No Drama Allowed

18 x 21 inches

Reading posts with friends on Facebook about how much drama occurs in holiday get togethers gave me the idea to make this design. I wasn’t sure it was a good idea at the time but friends chimed in telling me to make it, ‘it is necessary’.

I made this quilt for my friend Paula to display wherever and whenever she deems necessary.

Lacy Heart Gifts Designs

Glorious Hearts Gifts


Lacy Heart Gifts are another in the series Lacy Hearts.

Lacy Hearts Gifts 6×10 Design

I made this purse out of black pin-wale corduroy from my stash. The lining is a surprise gift of fabric from my friend Karen. I used a two way zipping zipper in the top of the purse and two neckline zippers for the 2 front pockets. The pockets on the backside and inside do not require zippers.

I used the largest gift embroidery design on the purse.
