Smocking from Fllikr

So I have not posted anything in a while.
I guess I have been busy counting the days until we leave.
We are at 16 now.
I have one small sewing project to finish and then I am packing up my machines.

I love smocking and dolls.
I found these on flickr and thought I would share them.
This gal has some beautiful dolls.
I would love to translate some of her outfits into little girls outfits.

Birthday gift & Pincushion

A note pad holder for a birthday present.
With personalized embroidery.

With a colourful fabric on the inside.
Just need to get a pack of markers or pencil crayons.
Perfect gift for an 11 year old!

Embroidered pincushion.
I have been wanting to make this one for a long time.
It was a free design/project from Oregon Patchworks.

Sewing. Snails and Ducks

In many of my previous posts my pictures where quite small.
I don't know why.
But Blogger seems to have fixed the problem and the pictures are bigger now.
Much better, I think.

Finished my order for my neighbor.
I made her 7 lunch bags she is using as gifts for teachers.
I also made her a pincushion as a thank you gift.
I love the puffy pincushions.

The girls found these snails.
We have them in a plastic bowl.
This one is trying to escape.

Can you see the holes in the cucumber they have snacking on?
The little black specks in the bowl are their poop.
Thought you might want to know that! 

These are our duck friends.
They come by nearly every day looking for food.

The count down contiues.
39 sleeps till we leave.
