I am new to embroidery and totally in LOVE with the Pattern Bee site. You have quite a talent! And I love your blog...thanks for the inspiration!


Oh, thanks for the chance to win those transfers...I have loved shopping at PatternBee! In fact, my girls and I have just finished up some embroidered hankies for a certain Papa for Christmas, using transfers we got from you. It seems I may have created a monster in my girls for embroidery. Oops. :)

Just put up a post, http://www.mysecondeducation.com/, about the Christmas bag I made using your tote bag tutorial. It was fun and so easy, thanks for the tutorial and great blog. I love your designs, I am a cross stitcher, learning to sew and hoping to try hand embroidery after the holidays.


how cute!


Hi! (love your blog :) )


Hi Vicki! I am so glad to see that you have time to sew again. I know after "burning the midnight oil" for so long, you must be ready for the well deserved time to sew. I am sure that Grace's delicious homemade double chocolate brownies will give you the energy you need to keep up the good work. Would you mind passing me one please?

I love your transfers. As you know I have several. I am teaching my grand-daughter to embroidery, like my mother taught me. We are having a great time with it. I hope that I am one of the lucky winners. I love your book and your blog. I am so glad that you are there. As before... Keep up the good work!


Sounds like a perfect December - sewing, giveaways, and chocolate. Grace's creations are pretty amazing.


Resting today, but your day of sewing sounds fun. Thank you for all your sharing.
