This is a quilow I made for Cooper out of what was left over from the quilow I made for Thomas.
I was even able to use some teddy bear fabric for the backing. Now that made me happy because it was probadly my last chance to use it, as Cooper is 3 now ( he is a big boy). I like to use fabric out of my stash.
All that was left to do was the binding which I did last night for the FNSI.

It consists of a top & bottom bun, beef patti, onion, lettuce, tomato, cheese slice, gherkin &
tomato sauce. In the front are some small white, dark & milk chocolates. All made In the Hoop.
I have lots of other play food that I will put on my Blog as time permits.

This is a quilow with all the big cats from the jungle on it. The second photo is of when you fold up the quilow and it turns into a cushion. I have put a tutorial from Sharon on how to do Quilt Binding including the corners, I think I have finally mastered the corners, so please check it out , you will be amazed at how easy it is. The tutorial is in tutorial under Machine Embroidery & Craft Ideas .

I used this great layout for my eldest grandson Matty. He has be doing mototcross for a few years now. Mororcross is a very dangerous sport and he has already had a couple of accidents. He has been flown to Brisbane with back problems, luckily it was not as serious as first thought. He also broke the growth plate in his foot ( never heard of that before). The brown, gold and green in this layout is perfect for boys and great for using a lot of photos.
Scrapbooking is another passion of mine. I think it all goes together, patchwork, embroidery and scrapbooking. I love going back and looking at photos from the past. I am making an album for my kids going back as far as I can so they will have some family history before it all gets lost. At the moment this is their great grandparents. I am doing some family tree research but it takes a lot of time. This is a photo of my sister (aged 3) and myself ( aged 12 months) I am only guessing the ages. The colours in this layout look really great and the lattice work wasn't that hard.

What more can I say, again done In the Hoop on my embroidery machine.
They look gorgeous, I am having lots of fun making these hair clippies.
These hair clippies are a bit different as the clip is put into the back of the design so you don't see the clip at all.
This is where I get a lot of my designs from.......
